Trident : An Automated System Tool for Collecting and Analyzing Performance Counters
Published online: 17 September 2019
Trident, a qualitative analysis tool that can look at various low level metrics with respect to the Core, Memory and I/O to highlight performance bottlenecks during the execution of an application. Trident uses a three pronged approach in analysing a node's utilisation of hardware resources and to help a non system expert understand the stress on different parts of the system by a given job. Currently metrics such as memory bandwidth, core utilization, active processor cyles, etc., are being collected. Interpretation of the data in raw form is often non intuitive. Therefore, the tool converts these data into derived metrics that are then represented as a system wide extended Top-Down analysis that helps developers and site managers likewise understand the application behavior without the need for in-depth expertise of architecture details.
