Next: Timer Interface Up: Component Performance Instrumentation and Previous: A Performance Interface for

A TAU Performance Component

Our approach offers both types of measurements discussed above. In particular, we have designed a performance instrumentation interface for component software and a performance component that implements this interface through a measurement port. This interface allows a user to create objects for timing, track application events, control the instrumentation at runtime, and query the performance data. TAU provides an implementation for each of these entities.
