This tutorial is meant to help you benchmark your application on an HPC cluster environment and to optimise the use of available resources. We will explain why you should benchmark a software you plan to run on a cluster before doing any productive calculations, what scalability is, tell you about potential bottlenecks and refer to advanced toolkits which can automate the process.
