Robert Sinkovits, Ph.D., scientific applications lead at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), will teach a class titled “Introduction to Performance Tuning and Optimization” from 9 a.m. to noon MDT on Thursday, July 16, at NCAR’s Mesa Lab in Boulder.
The class is intended for participants who do their own code development and need their calculations to finish as quickly as possible. It will cover the effective use of cache, loop-level optimizations, force reductions, optimizing compilers and their limitations, short circuiting, time-space tradeoffs, and more. The class will emphasize general techniques that can be applied in any language.
If you attend in person, bring a laptop computer with an SSH client installed so you can log into one of the supercomputing systems at SDSC or NCAR. SDSC training accounts will be available for those who need them.
The class will be in the VisLab, which is Mesa Lab Room 4. Space is limited, so please register only if you are certain you can attend. The session will also be webcast and recorded for later review. You can register at one of these links:
