ProPE was a project funded by the German Science foundation (DFG) from 2017 to 2020. It aimed to develop a blueprint for a sustainable, structured, and process-oriented service infrastructure for performance engineering (PE) of high performance applications in German tier-2 or tier-3 scientific computing centers.
The vision is to have a nationwide support infrastructure which allows application scientists to develop and use code with provably optimal hardware resource utilization on high performance systems, thus reducing IT costs of scientific progress.
The results and recommendations that were developed in the ProPE project are available in the ProPE-Whitepaper.
