Abstract : This manual describes step-by-step how to create a Grid'5000 appliance that comprises all the tools needed to acquire time-independent traces of the execution of an MPI application. Time-independent traces are an original way to estimate the performance of parallel applications. It allows to totally decouple the acquisition of a trace from its replay in a simulation framework. This manual also details the different acquisition scenarios allowed by this approach. Traces can be acquired in a very classical way, by folding the execution on less resources, or by scattering the execution across multiple clusters.
