Profiling is often the method of choice for performance analysis of parallel applications due to its low overhead and easily comprehensible results. However, a disadvantage of profiling is the loss of temporal information that makes it impossible to causally relate performance phenomena to events that happened prior or later during execution. We investigate techniques to add temporal dimension to profiling data by incrementally capturing profiles during the runtime of the application and… CONTINUE READING
