Performance and Correctness Tools for Extreme-Scale Computing
System Software and Runtime Systems
TimeWednesday, 17 November 20211:30pm - 3pm CST
DescriptionExtreme-scale computing systems are emerging to support increasingly larger scientific workloads. Next-generation HPC systems are becoming highly heterogeneous and highly distributed. As the software complexity increases in such systems, programming productivity is only possible if scientists are equipped with practical tools. While performance analysis and correctness tools are crucial to program scientific software, such tools must transition to the extreme-scale computing paradigm. Existing tools must be adapted to support highly heterogeneous systems, consider emerging programming models and provide better diagnosis support. This panel gathers developers and users of performance and correctness tools to discuss them in the context of extreme-scale computing. The panelists will state their position, driven by their vast experience, on enabling such tools in emerging systems and will express views on the most crucial problems the tools, users and vendor community should solve together. Attendees will benefit from discussions with the panelists and will provide feedback.
