Abstract(s)This paper presents a set of methods and techniques to remove inefficiencies in a data analysis application used in searches by the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. Profiling scientific code helped to pinpoint design and runtime inefficiencies, the former due to coding and data structure design. The data analysis code used by groups doing searches in the ATLAS Experiment contributed to clearly identify some of these inefficiencies and to give suggestions on how to prevent and overcome those common situations in scientific code to improve the efficient use of available computational resources in a parallel homogeneous platform.
