Expanse Webinar: Profiling Tools

Thursday, March 18, 2021

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

This event will be held remotely.

Knowing where your code is spending its time and identifying performance bottlenecks are the first steps in improving the performance of your application. This webinar will give brief introductions to two tools that will be made available to Expanse users. NVIDIA’s NSIGHT tool will help you understand GPU utilization and memory access so that you can take full advantage of Expanse’s V100 GPUs. AMD’s µProf provides both high-level information of CPU utilization at the function level and a deep dive into low-level details such as cache misses and poorly predicted branches. The webinar will spend roughly 30 minutes on each tool and conclude with pointers to additional resources.
