In this paper, we present two new approaches while rendering necessary extensions to Periscope to perform scalability and performance analysis on OpenMP codes. Periscope is an online-based performance analysis toolkit which consists of a user defined number of analysis agents that automatically search for the performance properties while the application is running. In order to detect the scalability and performance bottlenecks of OpenMP codes using Periscope, a few newly defined performance
