Description:
This webinar will provide an introduction to performance tools and techniques. A common application, High Performance Linpack (HPL), will be analyzed with profiling tools from a high level progressing down to how the code is mapped onto hardware. To do this, HPL will be analyzed with profiling tools for both user and system time and then a representative component of HPL (matrix multiply) from a near-the-hardware vantage point will be used to show how it can be tuned. Finally, emerging trends in performance tool development will be described.

Prerequisites:
This tutorial is intended for users with basic parallel programming experience who are new to the performance engineering process.
