ProTools 2021: Workshop on Programming and Performance Visualization Tools
TimeSunday, 14 November 20219am - 9:01am CST
DescriptionUnderstanding program behavior is critical to overcome the expected architectural and programming complexities, such as limited power budgets, heterogeneity, hierarchical memories, shrinking I/O bandwidths and performance variability, arising on modern HPC platforms. To do so, HPC software developers need intuitive support tools for debugging, performance measurement, analysis and tuning of large-scale HPC applications. Moreover, data collected from these tools can be far too large and too complex to be analyzed in a straightforward manner. We need new automatic analysis and visualization approaches to help application developers intuitively understand interdependent effects that algorithmic choices have on application correctness or performance. The Workshop on Programming and Performance Visualization Tools (ProTools) brings together HPC application developers, tool developers and researchers from the visualization, performance and program analysis fields for an exchange of new approaches to assist developers in analyzing, understanding and optimizing programs for extreme-scale platforms.
