NCSA offers free webinar on performance tools

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) will offer a free webinar on Getting Started with Performance Tools from 1:30 to 3 p.m. CST on Thursday, Feb. 25.

This webinar, led by NCSA system engineer Galen Arnold, 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.

There is no fee for the webinar, but registration is required.
