Using Intel® Software Development Tools to Analyze HMMER Share your comment!

This paper will highlight the features of Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2013 by using them to build and analyze HMMER (http://hmmer.janelia.org/). HMMER is a set of applications, which includes two, hmmsearch and hmmbuild, which are components of SPECint. We make use of eventbased sampling analysis in Intel® VTune™Amplifier XE to find out which code paths, context switches, or threading inactivity cause performance problems in hmmsearch. And, we’ll utilize the code optimization features of the Intel® Composer XE compiler to improve the performance of hmmsearch on Intel® Xeon® E5 processors. In addition, we will show you how to use Intel® Inspector XE to locate memory and threading errors introduced into hmmsearch.
