PerfSuite versions 0.6.2 final and 1.0.0 alpha 1 are now available.
Version 0.6.2 final contains no changes except for versioning
information from the 0.6.2 beta 3 release, but it is now the official
stable release of PerfSuite.
Version 1.0.0 alpha 1 is the first alpha release of the 1.0 series of
PerfSuite. During the alpha cycle, new capabilities and
features will be prototyped and added. Features may experience
significant changes as the alpha series progresses, and we caution that
new features may be removed if necessary during the cycle.
Highlights of this release include:
- A new Java API for parsing PerfSuite-generated XML files.
- Fundamental change in data gathering, based on user feedback. The new
approach reverses the order in which the time stamp counter and other
measurements (e.g. hardware performance counters) are sampled.
- Preliminary support for creating files that may be visualized with the
Cube visualizer from Scalasca.
There are a number of other changes, enhancements, and bug fixes in this
release. See the CHANGES file for more information.
