Application profiling allows developers to assess the opportunity for improving application performance using GPUs. Attend this session if you are interested in understanding the CUPTI, and how several popular tools (NVIDIA NSite, TAU, Vampir, PAPI, and HPCToolkit) make use of this profiling library. This will be run as a panel session with good opportunity for audience interaction.
Discover the latest parallel performance tool technology for understanding and optimizing parallel computations on scalable heterogeneous platforms. The session will present the TAU performance system and its support of measurement and analysis of heterogeneous platforms composed of clusters of shared-memory nodes with GPUs. In particular, TAU's integration of the CUPTI 4.1+ technology will be described and demonstrated through CUDA SDK examples and the SHOC benchmarks. Attendees will be provided LiveDVDs containing the TAU toolsuite and many pre-installed parallel tool packages. It will also include the last CUDA driver, runtime library, and CUPTI.
