Dynamic timers

To record the execution of each invocation of a routine, TAU provides dynamic timers where a unique name may be constructed for a dynamic timer for each iteration by embedding the iteration count in it. It uses the start/stop calls around the code to be examined, similar to static timers. The performance data generated can typically answer questions such as: what is the time spent in the routine foo() in iterations 24, 25, and 40?
