APART Phase 1
Esprit Working Group, Performance Analysis: Resources and Tools
APART is an Esprit Working Group (WG 29488) funded by the European Commission. It was created in December 1998. The working group brings together tool experts, parallel computer vendors, and software companies to discuss all issues in the automation of performance analysis for a broad range of programming environments.This covers design and implementation issues of user guidance support for existing interactive environments as well as of automatic analysers detecting typical performance bottlenecks.
- Forum of tool experts, parallel computer vendors, and software companies to discuss automation of performance analysis tools.
- requirements for automatic performance analysis support
- knowledge about typical performance bottlenecks
- base implementation technologies
- Focus is on scientific applications on parallel computers but the results will be evaluated also with respect to other programming environments, such as meta-computing and distributed object-oriented programming.
