This week Allinea Software announced the release of its high-performance scalable parallel debugger, Allinea DDT, for IBM BlueGene/Q systems.

Debugging at scale is a daunting problem for systems like Mira, the IBM BlueGene/Q systems at Argonne National Laboratory. Capable of carrying out 10 quadrillion calculations per second on over 750,000 cores, Mira presented a real coding challenge for Allinea, who worked closely with ANL over the last two years to adapt DDT’s scalable architecture to the BlueGene/Q architecture.

Allinea DDT is the only debugger capable of debugging at this scale,” said David Lecomber, CTO of Allinea Software. “We are extremely proud to be part of this project and to be assisting such important scientific work.”
