Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is, first of all, to introduce students to methods of C/C++ programs advanced analysis and teach them to look for causes of errors and low code performance. Students will learn how to remove these drawbacks using currently existing HPC tools.

Individual consultations

Summary

In this course, students will be introduced to debugging techniques (error identification) and profiling (application performance analysis) of sequential and parallel applications and codes. Based on the program behaviour analysis, students will be introduced to sequential and parallel code optimization techniques. Further, students will become familiar with the most frequently used tools for parallel code analysis, which are used in most world HPC centres.
