Exploiting Parallelism For Intel Xeon Processors & Phi Coprocessors
J.D. Patel and Jackson Marusarz, Intel Corporation
Do you want to learn how to take advantage of highly parallel computation capabilities offered by Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors? Intel software development tools makes it easy to exploit parallel performance by using consistent parallel programming models and optimization techniques. Technical consulting engineers from Intel Corporation will be providing training on Intel software development tools:
Session 1 – Intel Compilers Optimizations & Phi Programming Models – JD Patel, Jayesh.Patel@intel.com
Rapidly growing parallelism offered by Intel multi-core processors and many-core coprocessors will be discussed, with emphasis on both thread & SIMD- level parallelization. Intel compilers’ easy to use optimization features such as vectorization, IPO, PGO, and Cilk Plus will be presented. Learn how to program Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors, using different programming models – native, off-load, and symmetric. Both synchronous and asynchronous offload-modes will be discussed with examples.
Session 2 – Intel VTune Amplifier XE – Jackson Marusarz, Jackson.R.Marusarz@intel.com
Once you have running code, it’s time to optimize the performance. Intel® VTune Amplifier XE is a performance profiling tool that helps users visualize the performance of an application on Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi co-processors. Learn how to profile an application to see where time is being spent, how well the hardware is being utilized, and discover bottlenecks that may hurt your performance. VTune Amplifier XE provides both command-line and GUI visualizations of performance data and can point out specific code regions that may be underperforming.
Get more performance with less effort!
