Porting, Tuning and Performance Analysis Tools

By Mohamed Sayeed

Purdue University

Published on


A basic introduction to Porting, Tuning and Performance analysis tools will be presented. I will talk about issues in porting applications to different architectures including writing portable programs. Application performance tuning is very important to making efficient use of high performance computational resources. We will discuss general performance optimization techniques including using some performance analysis tools such as timers, profilers and hardware performance monitoring tools for performance analysis.
