This past Spring, I was fortunate enough to tour the new CSCS Swiss national supercomputing center, a state-of-the-art facility cooled with lake water. Now CSCS is refreshing their development tools by moving to Allinea DDT.
CSCS hosts Switzerland’s premier HPC systems including the Monte Rosa and Todi Cray XE6 and XK6 machines. With over 50,000 CPU cores and around 200 powerful NVIDIA Tesla X2090 GPU cards on site, developers at CSCS are aiming to achieve significant scientific breakthroughs with their applications.
Allinea DDT meets exactly the debugging needs of our users and allows us to take an important step forward in parallel debugging,” says Thomas Schoenemeyer, Associate Director Technology Integration of CSCS. “Our developers appreciate the unique debugging features such as the excellent parallel stack viewer and other integrated features that allow them to create distinct groups, which are very useful when debugging thousands of processes. The novel sparklines are exceptionally useful for examining data in parallel.”
