This training will present basic elements to enable developpers to understand when and how to optimize the performance of their codes.

Optimization :

  • Compiler options 
  • Vectorization - Data access (cache usage maximization)
  • Theory to upper-bound the expected performance benefit (speedup, efficiency, peak, memory bandwidth, ...)
  • Examples of Stencil codes and N-body simulations

Half of the course will be made of hands-on sessions. The hands-on will use the https://github.com/aff3ct/MIPP library


  • Bertrand Cirou
  • Mathieu Cloirec
  • Cédric Jourdain
