A Performance Measurement Environment for Cluster Computing



M M. Courson, Alan Mink, G J. Marcais, B Traverse


A number of factors promote frequent running of performance measurement codes for the evaluation and tuning of both applications and platforms. NIST is developing a prototype for an automated software measurement toolset to reduce the manual effort in running analyzing the results of such experiments. Our toolset consists of 3 main modules. A Data Collection and Storage module handles the collection of performance data and implements a central repository for such data. Another module provides an integrated mechanism to analyze and visualize the data stored in the repository. An Experiment Design and Control module assists the user in designing and executing experiments. To reduce the development effort this toolset in built around existing tools and is designed to be easily extensible to support the addition of tools.
