Debugging is inevitable when developing software, and parallelism adds another layer of complexity on top of it. A good parallel debugger, such as Totalview, is a very important tool for development of scientific software.

This workshop is an introduction to debugging parallel software with TotalView and MemoryScape and ReplayEngine utilities available on CSC's Cray XC30 supercomputer Sisu and HP Proliant SL230s supercluster Taito.
  • Introduction to Totalview: navigation, action points, data monitoring and visualization
  • Debugging parallel applications
  • Memory debugging with MemoryScape
  • Reverse debugging with ReplayEngine
  • Overview of CUDA and Xeon Phi support in Totalview
