The research work we presented in this paper reflects our view that
advances in performance technology will be a product of both
innovative ideas and strong engineering. More importantly, as the
performance complexity of parallel and distributed systems increases,
it will be important to develop performance tools on a robust
technology foundation, leveraging existing capabilities to realize
more sophisticated functionality. We believe the tools described
above demonstrate this result. Each is or will be implemented in a
form that can be distributed with the TAU performance system. While
this may go beyond what is necessary to ``prove'' a research result,
it is in the application of a performance tool on real performance
problems where its merit will be truly determined.
