SC Exhibits - Exhibitor Details

Products and Services:
    Acumem provides intelligent software analysis technology for multicore applications. At the click of a button, inefficient thread interaction, poor data quality and wasteful memory bandwidth SlowSpots are pinpointed and efficient fixes suggested. At a fraction of the time previously required, you can get the full potential of multicore processors.

Presenting at SCExhibitor Forum

  • Tuesday    14:00-14:30    Room 19A/19B
  • Erik Hagersten (Acumem)
  • Multicore Analysis for the Masses

  • It is well known that most multicore applications run far below potential performance levels. Tuning for multicore used to require insights into complex resource sharing (e.g., caches and bandwidth) and thread interaction (e.g., synchronization, coherence and false sharing). This required expert knowledge and many weeks of data gathering and human analysis using conventional performance tools, even to find the low-hanging fruit. This session discusses the new challenges associated with multicore performance and reveals the new Acumem technology, which automatically analyzes an application’s execution on real hardware. It pinpoints performance problems related to both thread interaction and resource sharing. Furthermore, it suggests appropriate application modifications, allowing non-expert programmers to perform optimizations that require weeks or months of top performance experts today.
