Installation

Prerequisites:

  • You must have likwid installed (see the build & install instructions).
  • You must be running Linux. (LIKWID doesn't support macOS or Windows.)

LIKWID.jl is a registered Julia package. Hence, you can simply add it to your Julia environment with the command

] add LIKWID

Documentation

Please check out the documentation to learn how to use LIKWID.jl.

Example: Performance Monitoring

using LIKWID

N = 10_000
a = 3.141
x = rand(N)
y = rand(N)
z = zeros(N)

function daxpy!(z, a, x, y)
    z .= a .* x .+ y
end
daxpy!(z, a, x, y); # warmup

metrics, events = @perfmon "FLOPS_DP" daxpy!(z, a, x, y); # double-precision floating point ops.

Output:
