Webinar: Performance optimization of scientific software I: Performance analysis

October 2018

The reason for doing high-performance computing is, well, high performance - but is your application as good as it can get, in terms of performance? Watch this webinar series and you will have an answer to that - hopefully together with some ideas on how to improve the observed shortcomings. In the first part, we will discuss some general considerations related to application performance, followed by a walkthrough on how to profile and analyse performance of your parallel application on CSC's Cray XC supercomputer Sisu.
