Acumem ThreadSpotter and China HPC Technology chosen by Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single and multi-core environments, and China HPC Technology Co., Ltd., a professional HPC application solutions and services provider today announced that Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has selected Acumem ThreadSpotter for performance optimizations.
Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), was established in 1962 following the amalgamation of the former Xu Jiahui and Sheshan observatories. Numerical simulation has been one of the most important tools of astronomical research in SHAO. Presently, SHAO has a number of high performance computational facilities, including a SGI Altix 4700, Altix 350, IBM Linux Cluster. Altix 4700 and IBM Cluster have 64 and 112CPUs, respectively. SHAO also runs more than 40 servers, 200 PCs, all are linked through network. The total capabilities of computation exceed 10000 billion.
“We are glad to have Acumem ThreadSpotter” said Dr. Pengjie Zhang at SHAO. “Performance tuning is very important to enable our codes to run in a more efficient way”.
“SHAO is a forerunner in digital galaxy simulation in China” said Daniel Deng, CEO of China HPC Technology. “We are very happy to add SHAO as an Acumem ThreadSpotter reference customer and look forward to see a huge performance gain on SHAO’s simulation codes by using this performance optimization tool.”
“China is a very interesting market with a very rapid growth for high performance computing. Our partnership with China HPC technology is new and I am delighted to see that it is already successful, allowing Chinese corporation and institutions to get easier access to our technology” said Mats Hovmoller, CEO at Acumem. “Optimal usage of resource is important everywhere and we look forward to a strong growth in China”
Acumem’s technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in both single- and multi-core environments. Acumem ThreadSpotter™ has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five or more, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.

Acumem’s technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in both single- and multi-core environments. The target users of the tools are programmers, both optimization experts and non-expert, whereas the customers and people benefitting from the results are also found among System owners, Development Managers, Performance Evaluators, Benchmarks teams, etc.. Through the identification of SlowSpots™, Acumem’s tools help programmers to go directly to the parts of the code where improvement potential exists without any need to go through thousands of lines of code and vast amounts of data. Acumem SlowSpotter™ has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.
Acumem ThreadSpotter mainly targets programmers with expert knowledge in performance optimization and gives more options in the data capture part, allows for an unlimited number of threads to be analyzed and also advises on more complex code changes than Acumem SlowSpotter™. Just as Acumem SlowSpotter™, TheadSpotter gives hands-on advice based on analysis of cache and bandwidth related performance problems for single- and multi-core systems.
