2 Installing PPW

We have designed our tool to integrate well with batch processing and interactive systems. To support both types of environments, we've split our tool into two pieces: a frontend used for browsing performance data on your workstation, and a backend that interfaces with your application and system libraries. The rest of this chapter will explain how to install both the frontend and backend of our tool onto your workstation and parallel machine.
