This workshop will give a brief introduction to the acquirable tools for code debugging and profiling on the RCC cluster Midway. General techniques for identifying common bugs and areas causing incorrect results or poor performance will be discussed. The tutorial will start with identifying common memory errors using a combination of compiler options, standard debuggers, and the Valgrind analysis tool. This will be followed by an introduction to techniques of code profiling including gprof, higher-level profiling tools, and hardware performance counters. Examples and hands-on exercises will be provided in C.

Prerequisites:
* Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop to participate in the hands-on session
