This publication documents the ProDev WorkShop ProMP product, version 2.9.2, which runs on IRIX systems. The ProMP product is a companion to the WorkShop suite of tools. It is used to analyze a program that has been parallelized; before using ProMP, you must first compile your program with an auto-parallelizing option. After the compiler generates an output file, you can use ProMP to analyze that file.
ProMP is integrated with WorkShop to let you examine a program's loops in conjunction with a performance experiment on either a single processor or multiprocessor run.
|Note: This product was formerly called WorkShop Pro MPF.|
The following topics are discussed in this guide:
Chapter 1, “Getting Started With ProMP”, describes (in general) how to use ProMP.
Chapter 2, “Tutorial: Examining Loops for FORTRAN 77”, describes how to analyze FORTRAN 77 loops.
Chapter 3, “Tutorial: Examining Loops for Fortran 90 Code”, describes how to analyze Fortran 90 loops.
Chapter 4, “Tutorial: Examining Loops for C Code”, describes how to analyze C loops.
Chapter 5, “Using WorkShop With Parallel Analyzer View”, describes how ProMP can be used with other WorkShop tools.
Chapter 6, “Parallel Analyzer View Reference”, is a reference guide to the ProMP product.

ProDev WorkShop: Overview
You can obtain SGI documentation in the following ways:
See the SGI Technical Publications Library at: http://docs.sgi.com. Various formats are available. This library contains the most recent and most comprehensive set of online books, release notes, man pages, and other information.
If it is installed on your SGI system, you can use InfoSearch, an online tool that provides a more limited set of online books, release notes, and man pages. With an IRIX system, select Help from the Toolchest, and then select InfoSearch. Or you can type infosearch on a command line.
You can also view release notes by typing either grelnotes or relnotes on a command line.
You can also view man pages by typing man title on a command line.
