S04: A New and Improved Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform: Advancing the Development of Scientific Applications

SESSION: S04: A New and Improved Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform: Advancing the Development of Scientific Applications

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Beth R. Tibbitts, Greg Watson, Jay Alameda, Jeffrey Overbey


Many HPC developers still use command-line tools and tools with disparate, and sometimes confusing, user interfaces for the different aspects of the HPC project life cycle. The Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform (PTP) combines tools for coding, debugging, job scheduling, tuning, revision control, and more into an integrated environment for increased productivity. Leveraging the successful open-source Eclipse platform, PTP helps manage the complexity of HPC scientific code development and optimization on diverse platforms, and provides tools to gain insight into complex code that is otherwise difficult to attain. This tutorial will provide attendees with a hands-on introduction to Eclipse and PTP. Part 1 (Morning) will introduce the basics of Eclipse: editing, building, launching and monitoring parallel applications in C and Fortran; support for remote project development. Part 2 (Afternoon) focuses on PTP's new and advanced topics: parallel debugging; code analysis and performance tools; inspection and analysis of a real application code, and obtaining details about code execution and performance. A range of other advanced features of PTP will also be covered. Access to a parallel system for the hands-on portions will be provided. NOTE: Bring a laptop and pre-install Eclipse and PTP. See for installation instructions.
