Performance Analysis: Necessity or Add-on in Grid Computing
Performance analysis tools are a necessity in parallel computing for creating highly tuned applications. Very powerful techniques enabling profiling tools, trace visualization tools, and automatic analysis tools have been developed to assist the programmer.
This presentation will discuss the requirements and the scenarios for performance analysis in Grid Computing. It will cover the current designs and the tools being under development in various grid projects. It will also introduce the grid-related work of the APART working group (http://www.fz-juelich.de/apart) focusing on automatic performance analysis.
