NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Nvidia Performance Tools for A100 GPU Systems, Feb 23, 2022


This webinar and demo/hands-on session presented by JaeHyuk Kwack from ALCF is part of the ALCF Developer Sessions, also open to NERSC users. 

Date and Time: 9 am - 10:00 am (Pacific time), February 23, 2022 (Wednesday) 


NVIDIA Developer Tools are available for detailed performance analysis of HPC applications running on NVIDIA DGX A100 systems, such as ALCF's ThetaGPU and NERSC's Perlmutter.  Nsight Systems provides developers a system-wide visualization of an application's performance. Developers can optimize bottlenecks to scale efficiently across any number or size of CPUs and GPUs on ThetaGPU and Perlmutter. Nsight Compute is an interactive kernel profiler for CUDA applications. It provides detailed performance metrics and API debugging via a user interface and command line tool. In this session, several use cases of Nsight Systems and Nsight Compute will be presented via a demo with simple HPC benchmarks on ThetaGPU.
