Streamline Computing Announces Immediate Availability of Distributed Debugging Tool for the AMD Opteron™ Processor
Streamline Computing today announced immediate availability of its Distributed Debugging Tool (DDT) for the AMD Opteron™ processor. The DDT is a comprehensive graphical debugger designed for the complex task of debugging parallel and multi-threaded code.
DDT has a unique and intuitive interface putting the developer in control of a parallel application - whether working with small SMP systems or large high-performance clusters. The tool gives users a common interface for every compiler, language and MPI distribution. DDT is in use globally at commercial, government and academic sites, and sets new standards for affordability and simplicity of use in parallel debugging.
“AMD’s customers adopting clustered servers based on AMD Opteron processors, will benefit from the ability to debug applications in parallel with Streamline DDT, helping to save them time and resources as they capitalize on the power of 64-bit computing,” said Rich Heye, vice president and general manager of AMD’s Microprocessor Business Unit.
“Cluster users finally have an affordable path to 64-bit computing with AMD Opteron processors and the Distributed Debugging Tool; they will enjoy simple and fast migration of High-Performance Computing applications to exploit the potential of this technology with the unique control of parallel code provided by DDT.” said David Lecomber, Director of Software at Streamline Computing.
The 32-bit compatibility of AMD64 technology will enable simultaneous debugging of 32- and 64-bit codes, easing the porting process for developers
using this architecture. Compatibility with the compilers of AMD's other partners is a unique feature of DDT.
About Streamline Computing
Streamline Computing was founded in 2000 by computer scientists from the universities of Oxford and Warwick in response to a demand for professional high-performance clusters, software and expertise in the UK. With backgrounds in parallel and high performance computing,
Streamline's experts have unrivalled insight into the hardware and software of cluster and grid computing.
Streamline have installed some of the largest clusters in Europe and develop software tools to simplify cluster programming and use. DDT, the parallel debugger, was released at SC-2002 and is Streamline's first product in a series aimed to revolutionize parallel computing.
