Florent Lebeau (Allinea, UK)


After one year, we have again the pleasure to host experts from Allinea, who will conduct a workshop devoted to Allinea tools for debugging and profiling HPC applications, especially on the new Salomon supercomputer.

Allinea Software is the trusted leader in software development tools and application performance analytics for high performance computing - and one of the fastest growing companies in the sector. Allinea tools improve the efficiency and value of high performance computing by reducing development time and increasing application performance. They are designed to handle the most demanding applications and environments and are used on the world's most largest supercomputers - Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, CEA and NCSA Blue Waters.

Purpose of the workshop (benefits for the attendees)

We will discover how to profile an application on Salomon and identify bottlenecks with Allinea Forge. Based on these information, we will show how the code can be optimised and review the results before turning to the task of debugging to fix the error introduced during the workshop. Then, we will see how Allinea tools help code migration to the Intel Xeon Phi accelerators.

About the tutor
