Title: Commercialization of User-Friendly Performance Analysis & Profiling Tools to Enable High Performance Computing (HPC) Applications on the ARM Processor Architecture

Abstract

The “ARM” microprocessor architecture, commonly used in cell phones and tablets, is emerging as a key technology for energy-efficient high performance computing (HPC). An easy-to-use and robust tool chain for understanding, porting and refactoring existing HPC codes is essential to unlocking the full potential of ARM in the HPC domain. EP Analytics will partner with ParaTools Inc. to commercialize an easy-to-use set of performance analysis and profiling tools to enable HPC applications on ARM processor-based systems. To accomplish this, EP Analytics is developing an open source binary instrumentation toolkit, EPAX (EP Analytics’ binary eXaminer), for ARM, which will be integrated with ParaTools’ TAU Performance System to provide a set of performance analysis tools for ARM with visual/graphical aids.
