Parallel Cost Centre Profiling

Glasgow Functional Programming Workshop, Ullapool, Scotland, September 1997.

Good profiling is a major issue in extracting performance from parallel programs. We report on a novel synthesis of sequential cost-centre profiling and state-of-the-art parallel simultion for the pure functional language Haskell that promises to provide detailed and accurate information about parallel Haskell programs. Exploiting simulation also improves the quality of sequential cost centre profiling, though at a significant performance overhead.
