Process-Oriented Performance Engineering

ProPE project documentation and activities


The ProPE project

prope-logo.pngProPE 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.
