TotalView Debugger Stands Above with Support for Blue Gene/Q

In this video from SC12, Scott Lasica from Rogue Wave Software discusses the company’s new Totalview programming tools for IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputers with a million processing cores or more.

The IBM Blue Gene/Q pushes the edge of technology by providing a leadership-class supercomputer that has a homogenous multi-core architecture and relatively low power consumption. On the June 2012 TOP500® list of supercomputers, four of the top ten supercomputers were Blue Gene/Q’s. Since February 2012, TotalView users at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), which was named the top supercomputer on the list, have been utilizing a pre-release version of the TotalView debugger for porting codes to take advantage of the new system. TotalView has a precedent of being the code and memory debugger of choice with users of IBM Blue Gene supercomputers, including JuQueen, the Blue Gene/Q at Forschungszentrum Jülich.”
