ScALPEL: A Scalable Adaptive Lightweight Performance Evaluation Library for Application Performance Monitoring

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As supercomputers continue to grow in scale and capabilities, it is becoming increasingly difficult to isolate processor and system level causes of performance degradation. Over the last several years, a significant number of performance analysis and monitoring tools have been built/proposed. However, these tools suffer from several important shortcomings, particularly in distributed environments. In this paper the authors present ScALPEL, a Scalable Adaptive Lightweight Performance Evaluation Library for application performance monitoring at the functional level. Millions of dollars are spent each year in building faster HPC systems to reduce computation time for a wide range of computational science and engineering applications
