Next: MPI Profiling Support Up: Compensation of Measurement Overhead Previous: Summary


To test our models of parallel overhead compensation, we built a prototype using the TAU performance system (23) and the Message Passing Interface (MPI). Our goal was to produce a widely portable prototype that could be efficiently implemented and easily applied. We chose MPI as the communication substrate due to its wide acceptance in the parallel computing community as the de-facto message communication standard, as well as due to its portable tool support.
