Introduction to Parallel Debugging
This mini-course will introduce the participants to different approaches in tackling the task of parallel debugging, including the use of advanced parallel debuggers, such as Totalview and DDT.
Overview: Debugging single processor code is already a daunting task that usually consumes a lot of development time. Luckily, many debugging tools are available to help the developer pinpoint the problem by controlling the state of execution. When dealing with large multi-processor code, however, this task becomes a true challenge for which the usual tools sometimes fail to provide a satisfactory solution when used exclusively.
