Abstract

This project will investigate whether and how it is possible to implement access to performance monitoring hardware in virtual environments.

Intellectual Merit

Hardware performance monitoring is widely used for performance evaluation and modeling.

Broader Impacts

Enabling PAPI on FutureGrid will enable access from a wide range of performance analysis tools.

Scale of Use

a few VMs for an experiment
