Parallel Debugging A Swedish Supercomputer

From the heart of Scandinavia comes news of Allinea Software and its work to open up new possibilities for software application developers and scientists at the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC). Allinea's mission is to make its Allinea DDT parallel debugger available across multiple SNIC sites.

NOTE: As a facility, the SNIC exists to provide Swedish researchers with unified access to the nation's leading supercomputers. It is also responsible for the strategic and scientific development of high-performance computing in Sweden.

"With so many users and systems, it was important to have a single tool that would support our environments well — and would enable our users to work at scale. Allinea DDT was clearly the right tool," said Jacko Koster, director of SNIC. "This is a step towards creating a core production environment that will be common on all SNIC resources."

SNIC coordinates Sweden's six HPC centers to ensure that the resources are used and developed optimally — and reliable software is a key part of that work as it seeks to minimize the CPU time wasted by software bugs and in fixing software problems.

Allinea's products are used by a range of commercial and research institutions across the world and have been applied to applications at both a comparatively modest scale and peta-scale applications on the world's largest supercomputers. With new product features aimed at multi-threaded applications and mixed computing architectures, Allinea says that it is now bringing its experience in parallel tools to the expanding arena of multi-core processing.
