Abstract

Performance is the reason for parallel computing. Despite years of work, many applications achieve only a few percentage of theoretical peak. Performance measurement and analysis tools exist to identify the problems with current programs and systems. Performance Prediction is intended to identify issues in new code or systems before they are fully available. These two topics are closely related since most prediction requires data to be gathered from measured runs of program (to identify application signatures or to understand the performance characteristics of current machines).
