Application developers are facing new and more complicatedperformance tuning andoptimizationproblems as architecturesbecomemore complex. In order to achieve reasonable performance on these systems, HPC users need help from performance analysis tools. In this tutorial we will introduce the principles of experimental performance instrumentation,measurement, and analysis, with an overview of themajor issues, techniques, and resources in performance tools development, as well as an overview of the performance measurement tools available from vendors and research groups.
