MPICH comes with a large amount of supporting material, including a number of examples and test programs, utilities for compiling and running MPI programs, a program that automatically generates profiling wrappers and Unix manual pages. There is also a library called MPE (MultiProcessing Environment) that contains routines for producing event logs, simple run-time visualization, and timing. Finally there are performance visualization tools called ``upshot'' and ``nupshot'' that display data from trace files (which can be produced by MPE).
