Today Cray introduced new OpenACC 2.0 support for directives-based programming of accelerators and coprocessors in the company’s supercomputers. Leveraging years of successful production accelerator experience and supercomputing domain knowledge, the Cray OpenACC programming implementation now supports Nvidia Tesla GPU accelerators and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors on the Cray XC30 series of supercomputers. Congratulations to Cray […]
Memory debugging MPI programs running on HPC clusters can be challenging. Memory leaks and bugs can be caused by factors such as failing to free memory or pointers, not checking for error conditions, array bounds violations, and memory corruption. Download a whitepaper identifying the top 5 types of memory challenges and ways to identify and […]
