In a joint effort, the two centres of excellence EoCoE and PoP have once again hold a hands-on workshop on HPC benchmarking and performance analysis on April 24 to 26, 2017. It is the third event of its kind and has been held at BSC in Barcelona and has been supported by the French and the Spanish PATCs. The first of these workshop was organized in Jülich, Germany, the second in Saclay, France.
Improving again an already proven concept, it has brought together 17 experts from topical fields in energy research and tools and 11 experts from HPC science including POP tool expeerts from BSC and JSC in order to tackle the transition of current R&D codes and applications towards exascale.
Experts from topical fields could really learn how to use advanced performance evaluation tools, get insight of the performance bottlenecks of their applications and bring back home JUBE based benchmarking tool to repeat, in a reproducible manner, this analysis on future optimised versions of their code.
