1.2. Supported Formats

ParaProf can load profile date from many sources. The types currently supported are:

  • TAU Profiles - Output from the TAU measurement library, these files generally take the form of profile.X.X.X, one for each node/context/thread combination. When multiple counters are used, each metric is located in a directory prefixed with "MULTI__". To launch ParaProf with all the metrics, simply launch it from the root of the MULTI__ directories.

  • pprof - Dump Output from TAU's pprof -d. Provided for backward compatibility only.

  • DynaProf - Output From DynaProf's wallclock and papi probes.

  • mpiP - Output from mpiP.

  • gprof - Output from gprof, see also the --fixnames option.

  • HPM Toolkit - Output from HPM Toolkit.

  • ParaProf Packed Format - Export format supported by PerfDMF/ParaProf. Typically .ppk.

  • Cube - Output from Kojak Expert tool for use with Cube.

  • HPCToolkit - XML data from hpcquick. Typically, the user runs hpcrun, then hpcquick on the resulting binary file.

  • ompP - CSV format from the ompP OpenMP Profiler (http://www.ompp-tool.com). The user must use OMPP_OUTFORMAT=CVS.
