Workload Characterization Using the TAU Performance System

  title={Workload Characterization Using the TAU Performance System},
  author={Sameer Shende and Allen D. Malony and Alan Morris},
Workload characterization is an important technique that helps us understand the performance of parallel applications and the demands they place on the system. It can be used to describe performance effects due to application parameters, compiler options, and platform configurations. In this paper, workload characterization features in the TAU parallel performance system are demonstrated for elucidating the performance of the MPI library based on the sizes of messages. Such characterization… CONTINUE READING
