TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(3) Defines a static timer.



TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(Profiler timer, char* or string& function_name, char* or string& type, TauGroup_t group);


TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(integer profiler(2), character name(size));


C/C++ :

With TAU_PROFILE_TIMER, a group of one or more statements is profiled. This macro has a timer variable as its first argument, and then strings for name and type, as described earlier. It associates the timer to the profile group specified in the last parameter.

Fortran :

To profile a block of Fortran code, such as a function, subroutine, loop etc., the user must first declare a profiler, which is an integer array of two elements (pointer) with the save attribute, and pass it as the first parameter to the TAU_PROFILE_TIMER subroutine. The second parameter must contain the name of the routine, which is enclosed in a single quote. TAU_PROFILE_TIMER declares the profiler that must be used to profile a block of code. The profiler is used to profile the statements using TAU_PROFILE_START and TAU_PROFILE_STOP as explained later.


C/C++ :

template< class T, unsigned Dim >
void BareField<T,Dim>::fillGuardCells(bool reallyFill)
 // profiling macros
 TAU_TYPE_STRING(taustr, CT(*this) + " void (bool)" );
 TAU_PROFILE("BareField::fillGuardCells()", taustr, TAU_FIELD);
 TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(sendtimer, "fillGuardCells-send", 
                   taustr, TAU_FIELD);
 TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(localstimer, "fillGuardCells-locals",
                   taustr, TAU_FIELD);

Fortran :

subroutine bcast_inputs
implicit none
integer profiler(2)
save profiler
include 'mpinpb.h'
include 'applu.incl'
interger IERR
call TAU_PROFILE_TIMER(profiler, 'bcast_inputs')
