Indiana University and Technische Universität have announced that they will co-host and hands-on workshop on Vampir.  Vampir is a tool typically used to profile, analyze and diagnose issues in sequential and parallel applications for high performance computing applications. Vampir was actually created by the Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH) at the Technische Universität in Dresden, Germany.

We will introduce workshop participants to creating performance traces of applications and visualizing them. We will also highlight how processor-specific information can be recorded and used to diagnose performance problems in applications,” said HPA Manager Robert Henschel. HPA is a division within University Information Technology Services (UITS) and PTI. “This workshop will be a rare opportunity for scientists and technologists in the U.S. to learn about Vampir directly from its developers. We are pleased that our colleagues from Dresden will be helping to lead the workshop,” added Henschel.

The workshop will take place on April 21st at the Innovation Center (2719 E. 10th Street, Bloomington, IN).  For more info, check out the workshop link here.
