Node-Level Performance Optimization

23.5.2024 09:00 +03:00 EEST - 24.5.2024 16:30 +03:00 EEST

CSC Training Facilities

This course covers advanced topics on code optimization for x86 platforms (Intel and AMD CPUs). We discuss different techniques for analyzing and maximizing both single and multi-core performance within a single node. The topics inlude instruction-level parallelism, vectorization, and efficient utilization of cache and memory. The course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises.
