Software name: 

PAPI is freely available to all users of HPC2N.


PAPI provides the tool designer and application engineer with a consistent interface and methodology for use of the performance counter hardware found in most major microprocessors.


PAPI enables software engineers to see, in near real time, the relation between software performance and processor events. In addition Component PAPI provides access to a collection of components that expose performance measurement opportunites across the hardware and software stack.


On HPC2N we have PAPI available as a module on Kebnekaise.

Usage at HPC2N 

To use the PAPI module, first add it to your environment. Use:

module spider papi

to see which versions are available, as well as how to load the module and the needed prerequisites.

Note that while the case of the letters does not matter when you use "ml spider", it is necessary to match the case when loading the modules.

You can read more about loading modules on our Accessing software with Lmod page and our Using modules (Lmod) page.
