dc.description.abstractTracing and performance analysis tools are an important component in the development of high performance applications. Tracing parallel programs with current tracing tools, however, easily leads to large trace files with hundreds of Megabytes. The storage, visualization, and analysis of such trace files is often difficult. We propose a trace-scaling agent for tracing parallel applications, which learns the application behavior in runtime and achieves a small, easy to handle trace. The agent dynamically identifies the amount of information needed to capture the application behavior. This knowledge acquired at runtime allows recording only the non-iterative trace information, which drastically reduces the size of the trace file.
