About this event

This two day workshop will be held at IU - Bloomington.

Registration is required to attend in person, space is limited.  Participants need to provide their own laptop, have an account on the IU supercomputer, Karst, and provide their own lunch (there are dining options in and near the CIB).

From a user perspective, supercomputers are more complicated to program and handle than an ordinary desktop workstation. This may lead to parallel programs that do not necessarily satisfy the performance expectations of the users. Such unexpected performance results can have many reasons. Basic knowledge on performance modeling, prediction and verification, as taught in this workshop, is needed by users to formulate and verify their performance expectation.

This course will utilize lectures and hands-on experiences.

What You'll learn:

  • Performance tuning and analysis basics: instrumentation, tracing and analysis
  • Code instrumentation and tracing with Score-P
  • Trace analysis with Vampir
  • Profiling with Allinea MAP
  • End-user experience stories

What you need to know:

  • Basic programming and command line skills on Linux systems. Knowledge on how to run jobs on supercomputers.
  • Experience running scientific applications on supercomputers
