Slidecast: Practical Performance Analysis of Parallel Applications

In October 2014, CSCS organised a course focusing on “Practical Performance Analysis of Parallel Applications”. The goal of this course is to let the users familiarise and practice with the tools, analyse their parallel application codes and learn performance analysis techniques that can improve their execution performance and scalability.

The course starts with basic application instrumentation and measurement to generate execution profiles, then improves measurement quality via customization capabilities, and ends with interactive and automated analyses of execution traces.

The material (presentations and hands-on practical exercises on Piz Daint Cray XC30 system) is available on the following YouTube playlist (sorry for the poor audio quality).
