SC18 is the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis. It’s the broadest and largest of any HPC conference, with activities ranging from invited talks, panels, and research papers to tutorials, workshops, Birds of a Feather sessions, and includes an exhibit hall with over 350 innovators.
Rogue Wave Software will be in the exhibit hall, booth #2322, showcasing our solutions to help you solve complex problems in complete, long-running applications; and troubleshoot complex, multithreaded, or multiprocess programs though high-performance source code debugging.
- Title: Technologies and techniques for debugging HPC applications
- Presenter: Bill Burns
- Abstract: Debugging and analyzing today's HPC applications requires a tool with capabilities and features to support the demands of today’s complex HPC applications. Debugging tools must be able to handle the extensive use of C++ templates and the STL, use of many shared libraries, optimized code, code leveraging GPU accelerators and applications constructed with multiple languages.
This interactive session walks through the different advanced technologies provided by the debugger, TotalView for HPC, and shows how they can be used to easily understand complex code and quickly solve difficult problems. Showcasing TotalView’s new user interface, you will learn how to leverage the amazing technology of reverse debugging to replay how your program ran. You will also see how TotalView provides a unified view across applications that utilize Python and C++, debug CUDA applications, find memory leaks in your HPC codes and other powerful techniques for improving the quality of your code.
