  author={Jeffrey K. Hollingsworth},
This thesis addresses the problem of trying to locate the source of performance bottlenecks in large-scale parallel and distributed applications. Performance monitoring creates a dilemma: identifying a bottleneck necessitates collecting detailed information, yet collecting all this data can introduce serious data collection bottlenecks. At the same time, users are being inundated with volumes of complex graphs and tables that require a performance expert to interpret. I have developed a new… CONTINUE READING
