This paper presents a Parameter based Performance Prediction Tool (PPPT) which is part of the Vienna Fortran Compilation System (VFCS), a compiler that automatically translates Fortran programs into message passing programs for massively parallel architectures. The PPPT is applied to an explicitly parallel program generated by the VFCS, which may contain synchronous as well as asynchronous communication and is attributed with parameters computed in a previous profiling run. It statically… CONTINUE READING
