Optimizing HPC Applications with IntelAr Cluster Tools takes the reader on a tour of the fast-growing area of high performance computing and the optimization of hybrid programs. These programs typically combine distributed memory and shared memory programming models and use the Message Passing Interface (MPI) and OpenMP for multi-threading to achieve the ultimate goal of high performance at low power consumption on enterprise-class workstations and compute clusters. The book focuses on optimization for clusters consisting of the IntelAr Xeon processor, but the optimization methodologies also apply to the IntelAr Xeon Phia„c coprocessor and heterogeneous clusters mixing both architectures. Besides the tutorial and reference content, the authors address and refute many myths and misconceptions surrounding the topic. The text is augmented and enriched by descriptions of real-life situations. What youa€™ll learn Practical, hands-on examples show how to make clusters and workstations based on IntelAr Xeon processors and IntelAr Xeon Phia„c coprocessors qsingq in Linux environments How to master the synergy of IntelAr Parallel Studio XE 2015 Cluster Edition, which includes IntelAr Composer XE, IntelAr MPI Library, IntelAr Trace Analyzer and Collector, IntelAr VTunea„c Amplifier XE, and many other useful tools How to achieve immediate and tangible optimization results while refining your understanding of software design principles Who this book is for Software professionals will use this book to design, develop, and optimize their parallel programs on Intel platforms. Students of computer science and engineering will value the book as a comprehensive reader, suitable to many optimization courses offered around the world. The novice reader will enjoy a thorough grounding in the exciting world of parallel computing.
