Allinea to Extend Performance Tools at SC15

allineademo2Today Allinea Software announced that the company will demonstrate significant extensions to their Forge integrated development tool suite and Performance Reports analytics tool at SC15 in Austin.

Version 6.0 of both products delivers for developers, users, analysts and system administrators – not only on Intel Xeon and Xeon Phi platforms, but also ARM 64-bit and OpenPOWER platforms.

“Our customers will be achieving the highest levels of productivity and system efficiency with new and unique built-in debugging and profiling insights.” said Mark O’Connor, VP of Product Management at Allinea.

The Allinea Forge debugger, DDT, strengthens its leadership by adding unique leaked pointer tracking which is designed to solve particularly tricky memory bugs. Equally innovative, DDT’s non-interactive “off-line” mode adds live feedback of application progress and allows snap-shotting of program state during execution.

Performance-seeking developers will, for the first time in HPC, have insight from new source-line instruction analysis in the Allinea Forge profiler, MAP. MAP now shows how long each line took and how it spent that time, whether in floating point, vector instructions or memory accesses – alongside the source code.

User-written custom metrics are also added to MAP – enabling users to add performance insight relevant to individual applications or domains – such as domain size or boundary element counts to track the impact of adaptive meshes on performance over time.

O’Connor added, “We’ve also introduced support for the latest technologies and platforms with our debugging, performance and energy profiling and analysis tools – our goal is to ensure that the applications for which HPC exists achieve their potential to transform – no matter what hardware they run on.”
