Streamline Computing has announced the release of a new version of its
popular Distributed Debugging Tool. The graphical cross-platform
debugging tool is renowned for the clarity and simplicity of its
interface - turning debugging from a specialist field to a task easily
undertaken by any user.
In this latest release, DDT enables message-queue debugging for MPI -
for rapid analysis of deadlock and associated communication problems
via a graphical interface. It is now possible to attach to running
jobs and processes, and to debug PVM applications. C++ support is also
improved - including support for expressions involving virtual
function invocation. An improved integrated help system and
simplified installation process are among the usability enhancements
in this release.
DDT was first announced at SC2002, and has since received tremendous
interest from the HPC community. DDT customers include leading
national laboratories, universities and companies throughout Europe,
the US and Asia.
The tool has the industry's best debugger interface for distributed
computing. The modern reconfigurable GUI provides drag-and-drop group
creation allowing easy grouping of processes by task, or the
troubleshooting a problematic process.
DDT provides a complete debugging solution for complex parallel
programs and supports all popular compiler vendors including: Absoft,
IBM, GNU, HP, Intel, PGI, and Sun Forte. The tool has support for all
MPI implementations, and all major operating systems and
architectures, including IA64, AMD64, x86 and PowerPC.
