Techniques for Performance Measurement of Parallel Programs

  title={Techniques for Performance Measurement of Parallel Programs},
  author={Je rey K. Hollingsworth and James E. Lumpp and Barton P. Miller},
Programmers of parallel systems require high-level tools to aid in analyzing the performance of applications. Performance tuning of parallel programs di ers substantially from the analogous processes on sequential architectures for two main reasons: the inherent complexity of concurrent systems is greater, and the observability of concurrent systems is complicated by the e ects instrumentation can have on the behavior of the system. The complexity of parallel architectures combined with non… CONTINUE READING
