|Description||This workshop introduces application developers to the IBM Parallel Performance Toolkit (PPT) for use on Livermore Computing's Sierra HPC systems. PPT is an integrated set of performance analysis tools that help the application developer tune a serial or parallel application. The workshop provides a detailed presentation of the toolkit's different components and their functionality, and hands-on examples of how to use the different tools in the toolkit.
After this workshop, participants will be able to use the IBM Parallel Performance Toolkit to do the following on LC's Sierra systems:
The workshop is comprised of two parts: approximately 2 hours of instructor presentations followed by an opportunity for attendees to become familiar with PPT through hands-on exercises and discussions with the instructor on topics of interest, including using PPT with their own applications.
Workshop accounts will be provided on an LC Sierra system for attendees interested in the hands-on exercises.
