For scientists, Allinea DDT 3.2 highlights include the integration of visualization and debugging – allowing easier access to visualization and the ability to click back from observable troublespots to application processes.
“Scientific simulations are inherently about 'the data'”, commented Dr. David Lecomber, CTO of Allinea Software, “and the integration of full-strength scientific visualization within a debugging session is key to exploring – by visualizing – the behavior of data and its interaction with code in an application. The VisIt software is recognized by the major supercomputing centers as one of the most capable visualization packages for data intensive HPC.”
“Users will appreciate some of the changes we've made to improve the workflow and pace of debugging – timesavers such as the ability to reuse batch sessions launched from within Allinea DDT without having to resubmit to the queue and simplifying getting started by automatic MPI detection will open debugging up to more users quickly.”
Full support for CUDA Toolkit 4.2 is released with Allinea DDT 3.2 and a new memory leak detection feature for CUDA devices will help to reduce application failures due to resource exhaustion and allow tracking of allocated memory.
There will be live demonstrations of Allinea DDT on Allinea Software’s booth, 734, at ISC12 and a complimentary training course in debugging with Allinea DDT is held during the show, details of which are available at www.allinea.com.
