This webinar will provide an introduction to the VisIT open source scientific visualization application. VisIT is used daily to analyze data from mesh-based simulations run on a wide range of platforms from laptops to peta-scale class supercomputers. VisIT provides a rich set of features that allow users to explore and analyze their data sets in a variety of ways. It also includes an extensive Python client interface which can be used to script analysis and movie generation.
After applying a new technology (a new processor, a hardware accelerator, a new instruction, etc) besides measuring the immediate performance delta one requires a method to verify that this technology has been applied correctly and efficiently. Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX - instructions for speculative execution of critical sections protected by locks) are not an exception here.
