2014 Proceedings of the companion publication of the 2014 ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, and Applications: Software for Humanity - SPLASH '14  
Motivation The proliferation of multicore processors warrants parallelism as the future of computing, increasing the demand to write parallel programs for increased application performance.  ...  AEM describe the performance of a program by measuring the cost of abstract operations, such as floating-point, comparison, stencil, or data structure operations.  ...  These visualizations are particularly useful when comparing the performance of the different algorithms and choosing the best performing parallel implementation.  ...

Three Dimensional Animation for Performance Debugging Utilizing Human Cognitive Ability [chapter]

Noritaka Osawa, Toshitsugu Yuba
1997 Human-Computer Interaction INTERACT '97  
Visualization is a useful first step for performance debugging, that is, performance tuning of a parallel program if it shows the balance between computation and communication.  ...  In visualizing perfocmance data, it is important to exploit the human cognitive ability of recognizing slight differences in shapes, positions and velocities of familiar objects.  ...  Visualizatioo of behavior and performance of parallel programs have been studied (Heath, 1995) .  ...
