Performance Technology for Complex Parallel and Distributed Systems

Allen D. Malonygif - Sameer Shende


The ability of performance technology to keep pace with the growing complexity of parallel and distributed systems will depend on robust performance frameworks that can at once provide system-specific performance capabilities and support high-level performance problem solving. The TAU system is offered as an example framework that meets these requirements. With a flexible, modular instrumentation and measurement system, and an open performance data and analysis environment, TAU can target a range of complex performance scenarios. Examples are given showing the diversity of TAU application.
