Advance Research in Higher Education With Better Parallel Computing Applications
Global universities and colleges use TotalView to:
Debug HPC Code
By using TotalView to ensure their HPC applications are highly reliable and using memory resources as effectively as possible, researchers, professors, and students can study and advance our understanding of disciplines, including:
- Genomic research, to develop more effective cancer treatments using precision medicine.
- Astrophysics, to better understand our universe using 2D and 3D simulations.
- Meteorology, to model climate change, including causes that benefit — and hurt — life.
HPC researchers and developers need to know how to debug their code. Many of our higher education customers use TotalView to teach HPC debugging because it can be used to:
- Step forward and backward through code execution to illustrate fault isolation, memory leak detection, and other critical skills.
- Easily record debugging sessions for lessons.
- Create debugging exercises by recording HPC application’s execution, including memory usage and thread context switches.
- Save time for students since the TotalView GUI interface is so easy to use.
- Take advantage of complementary services that come with some licenses, such as training for HPC debugging instructors.
Learn How HPC Code Works
When researchers, professors, and students at universities are new to an existing HPC project, they need to rapidly understand how the code works. With reverse debugging in TotalView, they can quickly gain the detailed insight needed to:
- Understand HPC applications’ logic.
- See how algorithms aggregate data and calculate equations.
- Gain insight into code written in multiple languages including Python, C, and C++.
- Debug MPI, OpenMP, and CUDA code to learn how to build complex applications.
Most HPC developers at universities collaborate with teams at other sites and institutions, which involves sharing HPC resources and applications. When one university has a TotalView Educational Site license, it can:
- Specify who can access TotalView, even if they work at a different site or institution, because the license is based on token usage.
- Boost efficiency by avoiding slowdowns caused by multiple debugging tools or limits around who can debug code.
See how the Hessian Competence Center for High Performance Computing (HKHLR) uses TotalView to boost collaboration and advance research in higher education.
Time is money — even in higher education. HPC researchers, professors, and students must efficiently utilize time on universities’ HPC clusters.
TotalView's easy-to-use interface and advanced features such as Reverse Connect enable efficient HPC debugging workflows, making it easier and faster to learn code and solve problems. In addition, TotalView provides educational site licenses and training packages to simplify TotalView adoption across your HPC facilities and affiliated educational sites.
