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.

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