Dear BOOST MPI community members:

It was real fun to write a parallel GA solving TSP with BOOST.MPI. Since
one of the challenges in writing parallel programs according to Anwar
Ghuloum from IBM ( is
using modern programming methods BOOST MPI and you as its community are

Would you be so kind to give me an advice how to measure scalability,
detect bottlenecks and in general profile the above mentioned parallel MPI
application? My next goal is to generate Gantt chart, but the raw profiling
data are perfect. Do you use any tools to verify the bugless execution of
your parallel applications, since parallel programs are full with Heisenbugs?
Currently only BOOST_ASSERTS are placed around both sending and receiving
vectors of user-defined classes over MPI.

I look forward to your reply.
Faithfully yours,
