Analysis & Diagnosis – Raw data visualization
Based on knowledge and experiences on HPC application, Inspur TEYE offers more readable and flexible data graphics from raw data extraction.

Multiple analysis methods

System-level: analysingthe running status of each node, to find out the key parameters.
Node-level :  analysing the running status of parameters, to find out the bottleneck and output the analysis chart report.
Parameters-level: comparing with the same parameters from different nodes, analysing the load balance of nodes, and eliminates the bottleneck of nodes.

Various graphic reports

Distribution of data:
Displaying featured data and probability distribution of interval, so as to understand the feature of the application and the optimization direction
Hot spot analysis:
Automatic analysis and identification of the points where performance data changes violently, analysing the feature of application at this point, providing the optimization.
Radar map of features:
According to the requirements of main indicators, generated radar map of features, finding the key parameters and performance bottlenecks

Optimization – efficient hardware & software configuration

Inspur application tuning Engineer combines graphic data with industry experience, to configure the most suitable solution for end user requirements, minimize the gap between hardware platform and application software, and maximize cluster performance and resource utilization.

  • Hardware optimization
    According to the analysis result, to supplement the bottleneck resources, and gain the best performance with the minimum investment.
  • Software optimization:
    Through coding level optimization, to parallelise an application with existing infrastructure.

Core value
In order to improve the parallel efficiency of application, optimize cluster performance, and minimize power consumption.  TEYE outputs various graphic charts with comprehensive cluster Microarchitecture parameters, for application analysis and diagnosis, and further system configuration.
TEYE has been become an efficient tool of analysis and diagnosis for HPC administrators, application developer and system optimizer in a large scale HPC environment.
