allineaToday Allinea Software announced that its tool suite for developing and optimizing high performance code has already been deployed at some of the major research labs moving to the newest Intel Xeon Phi Processor.

David Lecomber, CEO of Allinea comments: “Being ready with full support for Intel Xeon Phi from day one has been a key strategy for Allinea and underpins our approach for supporting customers, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory on the Trinity system, Argonne National Laboratory on Theta and NERSC on Cori, where work is now underway to port code and get applications ready for more complex science on a larger scale.”

Dr Rebecca Hartman-Baker, user engagement group leader at NERSC says “The Allinea tools are already providing valuable support around the huge task of porting scientific codes running on our Cray XC40 KNL system, Cori, over to the new Xeon Phi architecture being undertaken by 20 research teams simultaneously. Our support teams are very focused on achieving early wins from the new architecture which will help our customers to reach their true potential in the necessary time and compute-efficient way.”

The Allinea tool suite includes the debugger (Allinea DDT) for identifying and fixing bugs and bottlenecks in code more rapidly, the profiler (Allinea MAP) for increasing efficiency and vectorization for Intel Xeon Phi, and Allinea Performance Reports – a tool providing visual code performance and optimization metrics relating to compute, including processor utilization, in one clear report.
