Understanding Performance with Flame Graphs

Added by Pinke, Christopher over 8 years ago

Dear colleagues,

since in the last months there were no user group meeting due to time problems and no volunteers for talks, we decided to shift the dates for november and december.
The next meeting will be this wednesday, november 11th, at 16.15h in room 0.101 at FIAS.
Vinzent Steinberg will give a talk about how one can optimize performance of a program using a tool called flame graphs:

Understanding Performance with Flame Graphs

When optimizing a program, it is essential to identify the bottlenecks that have to be
eliminated. Flame graphs are a powerful visualization of profiled software, allowing
the most frequent code-paths to be identified quickly and accurately.
This talk will show how to profile your program and generate flame graphs
to gain insight into the performance characteristics of your code.

Also, we will have time for open discussions on C++ topics after the talk.
if you have a C++ programming question, bring it along!

The following meeting will take place at december 16th, so well before the christmas break.
If any of you would like to give a talk, do not hesitate to contact me or Vinzent.
