Special Features

Application Performance Snapshot

Take a quick look at your application's performance to see if it is well optimized for modern hardware.  Application Performance Snapshot now merges MPI and Application data to give a unified performance snapshot view which is easy, convenient, faster to view and analyze. Use it to understand where your application will benefit from tuning. Explore richer metrics to understand computation efficiency: MPI and OpenMP* parallelism, Memory Stalls, FPU utilization, and I/O efficiency with recommendations on further in-depth analysis. Supports Intel® MPI, MPICH and Cray MPI. A standalone version will also be available shortly; watch this page for details.

See the Get Started with Application Performance Snapshot help article for more information.
