Keynote Address: Tools and Performance Enhancements for Clusters

Jack Dongarra
University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA
Abstract:  In this talk we will look at some of the tools that are being developed to achieve high performance and to evaluate performance on modern processors.  In particular we will look at the ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Subroutines) and the PAPI (Portable API) projects.  The ATLAS project is an ongoing research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques in order to provide portable performance.  The focus of PAPI is to provide an easy to use, common set of interfaces that will gain access to these performance counters on all major processor platforms, thereby proving application developers the information they may need to tune their software on different platforms. Our goals are to make it easy for users to gain access to the counters to aid in performance analysis, modeling, and tuning.
