Today's ever advancing technology platforms offer huge potential for completing faster and more advanced work but missing the vital warning signs of inefficient code behaviour will hinder your performance at any scale. Allinea tools are designed to help you get to the root causes of system crashes and bottlenecks quickly and in this workshop we will provide hands-on user advice for developing more robust code efficiently on Salmon. The session will also demonstrate the use of the tools for getting the most out of the cluster by easily identifying your biggest priorities for optimization across commonly occurring crash, memory and workload balance issues.





Purpose of the course (benefits for the attendees)

The participants will learn how to:

  • use Allinea tools on Salomon,
  • debug and profile parallel applications,
  • overcome scalability and performance issues.
