Tutorial on Analysis Methodologies and Tools

Call for Participation!
ISCA 2013, Analysis Tutorial
June 23rdTel-Aviv

Tutorial overview

The Tutorial on Analysis Methodologies and Tools is a forum to connect researchers and designers of hardware and software performance tools. The goal of this one-day tutorial is to provide an overview of modern analysis methodologies and optimization techniques, that are embedded in analysis tools built around x86-based PMUs (Performance Monitoring Units).

The tutorial will cover various analysis and tuning aspects including performance, power, responsiveness and parallelization. Presenters will demonstrate how these tasks can be achieved using advanced analysis tools including: Intel’s VTune Amplifier as well as Performance Bottleneck Analyzer, Google’s Gooda, and the perf utility which recently become default in Linux kernel. Some sessions will include real-life enterprise workloads characterization and analysis challenges.

This is a full day tutorial is held in conjunction with ISCA 2013, June 23th in Tel Aviv.
