The Productivity from Open, INtegrated Tools (POINT) project is funded as part of the NSF's Software Development for Cyberinfrastructure (SDCI) program. The goal of the this project is to integrate, harden, and deploy an open, portable, robust performance tools environment for the NSF-funded high-performance computing centers. We are leveraging the widely-used TAU, PAPI, Scalasca, and PerfSuite technologies as core components, improving them as necessary to meet user and application needs.
Four major institutions are collaborating in this project: University of Oregon, University of Tennessee at Knoxville and National Center for Supercomputing Applications are developing and integrating the performance tools. The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is leading the application engagement and outreach effort.
We would like to hear from anyone interested in the POINT project. If you have any questions, comments, or requests, please send us an email.
