The significant gap between peak and realized performance of parallel machines motivates the need for performance analysis. Contemporary tools provide only generic measurement, rather than program-specific information and analysis. An object-oriented and message-driven language, such as Charm, presents opportunities for both program-specific feedback and automatic performance analysis We present a framework in which specific and intelligent feedback can be given to the user about their parallel program. The framework will use information about the parallel program generated at compile-time and at run-time to analyze its performance using general expertise and specific algorithms in performance analysis.
