This paper discusses the comprehensive performance proling, improvement, and benchmarking of a Molecular Dynamics code, one of the most parallelizable applications, on both shared and distributed multiprocessor systems. In our analysis , we consider language, compiler, architecture, and algorithmic changes for each parallel portion and discuss the(More)
