Using PAPI

To use PAPI in your own programs:

  • Read the Overview of PAPI.
  • Try out the utility programs in /utils to see what's in your system.
  • Try a test program. Source for a number of tests in both C and FORTRAN is available in the src/tests/ and src/ftests/ directories. Find a program that's similar to what you want to do. Make sure you can build it and run it.
  • Write a test program of your own, exercising the PAPI events and features of interest to you.
  • Go for broke. Fold PAPI calls into your sources and see what you can learn.
