Baseline Set of Debuggers
BC Project: FY06-05
Date of Policy: 19 Jan 2006
Last Updated: 02 Aug 2018 (see Revision Log)
This policy requires a baseline set of debuggers be available on all user-accessible systems at participating HPCMP centers.
The packages included in the baseline set are:
- Allinea DDT
- The DDT debugger is a commercial HPC debugger. Licenses are available for scalar, multi-threaded, and large-scale parallel applications.
- GNU Debugger (GDB)
- The GDB debugger is open source offered by the GNU project, covered by the GNU public license.
- The TotalView debugger is a commercial HPC debugger. Licenses are available for scalar, multi-threaded, and small-scale parallel applications due to limitations in license tokens.
The GUI interfaces for DDT and TotalView must be operational and accessible from the compute nodes of any user-accessible system.
In order to be compliant, a user-accessible system must have this set installed and in the standard login path, or available through modules. If modules are used for the baseline debuggers, the module for one of these debuggers must be loaded by default.
