Prepare for the Next Generation of Memory. (Is Your Application a Good Candidate?)

If data centers are part of your gig, you’re likely focused on big data and the big memory it requires to successfully run HPC workloads, including asking questions like …

Will larger Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory increase performance if I make code changes?”
“If so, what code do I need to change? And how?”
“Can it speed up I/O delays in my application?”

Every application is different, of course. But if you’ve got 10 minutes, you’ve got enough time to watch Intel Technical Consulting Engineer Kevin O’Leary discuss and demonstrate how Intel® VTune™ Profiler’s coarse-grain and fine-grain application views can answer those questions.

Kevin covers:

  • A quick Intel VTune Profiler overview
  • How to use its memory and I/O analysis to take a fine-grained look at specific memory objects
  • How to use its Platform Profiler feature to plan design changes and tune you final implementation to take the best advantage of Intel Optane technology

Download the software
Get Intel® VTune™ Profiler as a standalone tool, or get it as part of the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit.
