Amédée d'Aboville will present Curtsinger and Berger's "COZ: Finding Code that Counts with Causal Profiling" https://arxiv.org/pdf/1608.03676 and its associated implemntation Coz.
This paper introduces causal profiling, a technique to find key parts of multithreaded code and figure out how improvements to these parts would speed up the overall application. The main implementation of this idea is a tool called Coz (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE0V-p1odPg and https://github.com/plasma-umass/coz), which has recently added Rust support.
This paper was the recipient of the Best Paper Award at the Symposium on Operating Systems Principles 2015.
(Note for those at the last meetup, we've shuffled speakers and therefore topics around.)
See you soon at our next PWL!
