BSC's Mont Blanc Project selects debugging solution

Share this on social media:

Barcelona Supercomputing Centre's Mont Blanc Project is using Allinea's DDT 3.1 debugging tool for its ARM processors.

The newly launched Mont Blanc Project aims to set future global HPC standards, through its utilisation of ARM technology to develop energy efficient HPC systems.

The Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC), which is coordinator of the 14 million Euro project, is using Allinea DDT on its prototype ARM cluster in the porting of HPC applications to this new platform.

Alex Ramirez, coordinator of the Mont Blanc Project, comments: 'The debugger for parallel applications is a critical piece of the system software stack; one that was missing on our ARM-based prototypes. This is very good news for Mont-Blanc, and for all others developing software on ARM clusters.'
