It is our pleasure to announce the 38th VI-HPS Tuning Workshop, organized by NHR@FAU. FAU is a member of VI-HPS, the “Virtual Institute – High Productivity Supercomputing.” The mission of VI-HPS is to to improve the quality and accelerate the development process of complex simulation programs in science and engineering that are being designed for the most advanced parallel computer systems.

To this end, VI-HPS organizes a series of tuning workshops that introduce advanced performance analysis tools. This workshop will:

  • give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite,
  • explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively,
  • offer hands-on experience and expert assistance using the tools.

In this particular event, we will cover the tools TAU , MAQAO, Score-P, Paraver/Extrae/Dimemas, and Extra-P. On completion participants will be familiar with common performance analysis and diagnosis techniques and how they can be employed in practice. Those who prepared their own application test cases will have been coached in the tuning of their measurement and analysis, and provided optimization suggestions.

Important: Note that this workshop is aimed at HPC developers. Participants must be familiar with handling a Linux environment over an SSH connection, basic parallel programming, and working with a batch system. There will be no time to teach these topics during the workshop.

Workshop dates: March 1-3, 2021, 9:00-17:00
