HPC-Europa: Virtual Surgery on CPU/Memory Profiling and Debugging with Google Perftools and Valgrind

Thursday 15th Dec 2011 from 1-2pm, in the TCHPC Visualisation Facility

As part of the HPC-Europa project, TCHPC will be giving a Virtual Surgery.


The tutorial deals with rapid profiling and debugging of C/C++/Fortran codes using two tools:

  • Google-Perftools and Valgrind

We will demonstrate basic usage of

  • Google-Perftools as a profiler and a memory debugger
  • And of Valgrind as a memory debugger
