SALT LAKE CITY, UT and BOULDER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- At the SC12 conference, Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components for the next generation of HPC applications, announced that TotalView® has achieved a significant debugging milestone during testing conducted as part of its strategic scalability initiative. During the testing, TotalView demonstrated its capability to debug a parallel job running on 786,432 processor cores. The tests were conducted on Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's (LLNL) Sequoia, its IBM® Blue Gene/Q® supercomputer. These scalability tests are key to advancing Rogue Wave's strategic business goal of providing leading tools that scale with its customers' applications on today's petascale computers and to ensure that TotalView is well positioned for the industry's move towards exascale computing. Sequoia serves the National Nuclear Security Administration's Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program, a cornerstone of the effort to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the nation's nuclear deterrent without underground testing.
"We are actively working to increase the capabilities of our scientific codes to scale and take advantage of the phenomenal power of Sequoia. As part of this effort, we are looking for ways to get more on-node parallelism from existing codes and architecting our new codes to support the even more massive degrees of parallelism that we know will be needed in the future," stated Scott Futral, LLNL group leader for Development Environment. "Rogue Wave's dedication to pushing for ever-increasing scales with its TotalView debugger and the recent tests give us reason to be confident that TotalView will continue to be a critical development tool as we reach higher and higher scales with our own codes."
Rogue Wave's scalability initiative, which is a partnership with LLNL and LLNL's Tri-Lab partners (Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory), features a multi-architecture approach, targeting the Blue Gene/Q platform, along with x86-based architectures, like the Cray® XE. Extreme-scale testing allows TotalView engineers to identify bottlenecks and prioritize efforts in optimizing and tuning the debugging engine for scalability. During the most recent testing session, TotalView successfully scaled across 786,432 cores, with no indication of the debugger hitting any barriers.
Rogue Wave conducted this test using a hybrid MPI + OpenMP code that implements a method for solving a system of linear equations. This application, which makes use of both MPI for distributed memory multi-process parallelism and OpenMP for shared memory thread based parallelism, was selected because it shares important characteristics with many applications used on extreme scale systems, such as Sequoia. This kind of attention to the workloads of large-scale systems is another key aspect of scalability requirements.
Since there was no indication of any barrier being hit at the 786,432 core mark, the testing suggests that TotalView could have leveraged more of Sequoia's 1.5 million cores if additional compute nodes had been available. In order to further push TotalView's scalability, additional tests oversubscribed the machine by spinning up more than one thread per core. Rogue Wave will announce the result of this second set of tests, which demonstrate successful debugging of an even higher number of threads, on Thursday November 15th at 12:00 PM MST. Rogue Wave invites SC12 attendees to visit its booth, #3418, to participate in a competition to correctly guess the number of threads TotalView debugged.
TotalView® is a highly scalable debugger that provides troubleshooting for a wide variety of applications including: serial, parallel, multi-threaded, multiprocess, and remote applications.
Designed for developer productivity, TotalView simplifies and shortens the process of developing, debugging, and optimizing complex code. It provides a unique combination of capabilities for pinpointing and fixing hard-to-reproduce bugs, memory leaks, and performance issues. TotalView raises the bar for debugging by providing several additional features at no extra cost, including debugging for CUDA, OpenACC and deterministic reverse debugging, which allows users to pause, rewind and playback the sessions to accurately identify and correct errors.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
