Allinea Software has released the latest version of its development tool suite and performance analysis tools with a focus on improving the energy efficiency of application software and enabling swifter integration of tools into complex HPC workflows.
New Allinea Forge and Performance Reports energy packs measure and profile CPU, GPU and system power consumption, enabling both administrators and developers to reduce the energy consumption of their applications.
“Energy efficiency is crucial to high performance computing today – and application software has a major impact on the green footprint and energy cost of HPC. Optimising and tuning the energy usage of real applications and workloads lowers operational costs and helps cap system energy usage,” said Mark O’Connor, VP of Product Management.
Further major new features with Allinea Forge 5.1 target enabling developers to create better code faster, regardless of the complexity of their system and software.
O’Connor adds, “Tools are vital to great software – so we are ensuring scientists and developers can include our tools in their workflow with zero effort. We're doing that through simplified launch commands that fit into user's existing workflows and a new seamless job connection method that removes the need to forward graphical displays from inside batch sessions.”
Other highlights for Allinea Forge include extended memory debugging and leak detection within non-interactive debugging sessions, and deep zooming capabilities during profiling for exploring critical regions of time in greater depth.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
In late November, the 14 project partners in the MoPaHyb consortium developing a modular production plant for hybrid high-performance components wrapped up their successful efforts with a two-day symposium in Pfinztal, Germany.
Alvant says its aluminium matrix composite is proven to offer significant weight and performance benefits for rotor applications found in electric motors, flywheels, fans and turbines.
