Parallel/distributed application development is a very difficult task for non-expert programmers, and therefore support tools are needed for all phases of this kind of application development cycle. This means that developing applications using predefined programming structures (frameworks) should be easier than doing it from scratch. We propose to take advantage of the knowledge about the structure of the application in order to develop a dynamic and automatic tuning tool. In this sense, we have designed POETRIES, which is a dynamic performance tuning tool based on the idea that a performance model could be associated to the high-level structure of the application. This way, the tool could efficiently make better tuning decisions. Specifically, we focus this work on the definition of the performance model associated to applications developed with the master-worker framework.
