A Framework for Scalable, Parallel Performance Monitoring

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

Performance monitoring of HPC applications offers opportunities for adaptive optimization based on dynamic performance behavior, unavailable in purely post-mortem performance views. However, a parallel performance monitoring system must have low overhead and high efficiency to make these opportunities tangible. The authors describe a scalable parallel performance monitor called TAUoverMRNet (ToM), created from the integration of the TAU performance system and the Multicast Reduction Network (MRNet). The integration is achieved through a plug-in architecture in TAU that allows selection of different transport substrates to offload online performance data.
