Today Allinea unveiled a new tool targeting system owners and developers alike at the SC13 Supercomputing exhibition. The new tool, Allinea Performance Reports, provides a scalable and effective way to characterize and understand the performance of HPC application runs, without needing to instrument or recompile applications.
We watched a demo of the new Performance Reports software last night at Allinea Booth #1719 and came away impressed. By adding one line at run time, you get a web page that lets you home in on performance issues and how to fix them.
With Allinea Performance Reports, everyone involved in the running of HPC applications and systems can instantly characterize the nature of applications and diagnose problems from configuration issues and system contention right through to application code optimization and compiler choice,” said Mark O’Connor, VP Product Management at Allinea Software. “By being non-intrusive and able to run automatically on applications, we hope to foster a positive culture of performance awareness inside HPC – and accelerate the rate of scientific development and the return on HPC investment in hardware and software.”
