Event/Course Description

This is an on-site workshop at LRZ in Garching near Munich. Participants are expected to bring their own laptops. There are no PCs installed in the course room! There will be no possibility to join online remotely via video conference. You have to travel to Garching near Munich to participate. We cannot provide any travel grants.


This on-site workshop organised by VI-HPS and LRZ 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

On completion participants should be familiar with common performance analysis and diagnosis techniques and how they can be employed in practice (on a range of HPC systems). Those who prepared their own application test cases will have been coached in the tuning of their measurement and analysis, and provided optimisation suggestions.

Programme Overview

Presentations and hands-on sessions are planned on the following topics:

  • Setting up, welcome and introduction
  • Score-P instrumentation and measurement
  • CUBE profile processing and exploration
  • Scalasca automated trace analysis
  • ... and potentially others to be added

A brief overview of the capabilities of these and associated tools is provided in the VI-HPS Tools Guide.

The workshop will be held in English and run from 09:00 CEST to not later than 18:00 CEST each day, with breaks for lunch and refreshments.

Participants are encouraged to prepare their own MPI, OpenMP and hybrid MPI+OpenMP parallel application codes for analysis.
