assesing available papi on new system

Postby mikepapiuser » Thu Jun 27, 2013 1:06 pm


Was just wondering if there is a standard procedure to asses a PAPI build when using it on a system for the first time?

I am trying to compare the available PAPI counters etc available on one system to those available on another.

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Try running a simple test from the ctests directory, such as "zero". If you get reasonable count information, you can confirm that the build went ok, that your processor was properly identified, and that the processor events were found. Then run the "" shell script to steps through all executable tests in the ctests directory. There may be a small handful of failures, but if most tests pass, you should be good to go. Then you can use the utilities papi_avail and papi_native_avail to see what events can be counted.
Good luck!
