Many HPC applications scale poorly when migrating to multicore systems, often running far below expected performance. Finding the cause of the problem is often a lot harder than fixing it. This technical white paper by Professor Erik Hagersten shows how developers can now directly identify and eliminate many of the multicore performance bottlenecks in application code without requiring a deep understanding of the system’s processor, cache and memory sub-system.
