Slides of PTF Course

In connection with the AutoTune Demonstartion Center, TUM and BADW-LRZ offered a first short course for Periscope and PTF:

Title: Automatic Tuning of HPC Applications with Periscope

Date: Thursday, April 23, 2015,  15:00-17:00

Location: LRZ Building, Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, Kursraum 2 (H.U.009)

Slides: here

Contents: This course introduced the Periscope Tuning Framework (PTF) that was developed in the European AutoTune project ( It supports programmers of HPC applications in performance analysis and automatic tuning. PTF automates application tuning with respect to the best compiler flag combination of the Intel compilers on SuperMUC as well as for the best settings of MPI library parameters. In addition, it provides automatic means to determine the best processor clock frequency optimizing energy efficiency.


  • 15:00 – 15:30 Introduction to the Periscope Tuning Framework
  • 15:30 – 16:00 Tuning plugins
    • Compiler Flag tuning
    • MPI parameter tuning
    • Energy efficiency tuning
  • 16:00 – 17:00 Hands-on
    • Application of PTF with the tuning plugins to a prepared benchmark.

Language: English
