We would like to invite you to the 33rd VI-HPS Tuning Workshop which
will be held at Juelich Supercomputing Centre in Germany as part of the
PRACE training centre curriculum.  This is the latest in a series of
hands-on practical workshops given by tools developers for parallel
application developers.  The Virtual Institute - High Productivity
Supercomputing (VI-HPS) is an initiative promoting the development,
integration and use of HPC tools: see http://www.vi-hps.org

Participants are encouraged to bring their own parallel application
codes to the workshop to analyze and tune their performance with the
help of experts.  Analysis will focus on MPI and OpenMP, with optional
additional use of OpenACC, OpenCL or CUDA.

This workshop organized by VI-HPS and JSC as a PRACE training event will:

  • give an overview of the VI-HPS programming tools suite
  • explain the functionality of individual tools, and how to use them effectively
  • offer hands-on experience and expert assistance using the tools

The detailed program will be available on the VI-HPS training web site.

Presentations and hands-on sessions are planned on the following topics

  • Setting up, welcome and introduction
  • Score-P instrumentation and measurement
  • Scalasca automated trace analysis
  • TAU performance system
  • Vampir interactive trace analysis
  • Extra-P automated performance modeling
  • Paraver/Extrae/Dimemas trace analysis and performance prediction
  • MAQAO performance analysis & optimisation
  • MUST runtime error detection for MPI
  • ARCHER runtime error detection for OpenMP
  • JUBE script-based workflow execution environment
  • ... and potentially others to be added

A brief overview of the capabilities of these and associated tools is provided in the VI-HPS Tools Guide.

Prerequisites: Experience with MPI or OpenMP

Registrations are only considered until 10 June 2019 due to available space, the maximal number of participants is limited. Applicants will be notified, whether they are accepted for participitation.

Instructors: JSC staff members, members of the VI-HPS collaboration
