Project: An automation tool for bottleneck analysis from profiling reports
May 2020 - August 2020



We implemented GVProf, the first value profiler that locates value redundancy problems in applications running on GPU-based clusters. Our experiments show that GVProf incurs acceptable overhead and scales to large executions. GVProf provides useful insights to guide performance optimization. Under the guidance of GVProf, we optimized several HPC and machine learning workloads
