Cube 3.x series

Download Build requirements Documentation ChangeLog


Cube, which is used as performance report explorer for Scalasca, is a generic tool for displaying a multidimensional performance space consisting of the dimensions (i) performance metric, (ii) call path, and (iii) system resource. Each dimension can be represented as a tree, where non-leaf nodes of the tree can be collapsed or expanded to achieve the desired level of granularity. In addition, Cube can display up to three-dimensional Cartesian process topologies.

The Cube 3.x series report explorer and the associated Cube3 data format is provided for Cube files produced by measurements with the Scalasca version 1.x performance tool (and other compatible tools).
