The University of Luxembourg adopts Allineas Allinea MAP

The University of Luxembourg is using Allinea MAP to speed up research.

More than 250 users compete for time on the University’s 4,110 core high performance computing platform. The University has been using Allinea DDT for over two years to provide simple, clear debugging for users developing their own codes. Recently they started to analyse their codes with Allinea MAP, the parallel profiling tool.


Dr Xavier Besseron, a research associate at the University working on advanced simulation technology for multi-physics applications, was involved in the procurement of Allinea MAP. He said: ‘Switching between Allinea DDT and Allinea MAP is as simple as clicking a button. You can use Allinea MAP whenever you make changes to your software and see performance issues. It gives a really simple overview of what time is spent in communication, in computation, and in input and output.’


Dr Besseron said, ‘Researchers in areas like engineering just want to improve and run their simulations, without having to learn too much about the detail of the system.’
