Minutes

  • Releases
    • PTP 5.0.5 was released Feb. 15 - and with Eclipse SR2 2/24/2012;
    • PTP 5.0.6 was released yesterday March 14;
    • PTP 5.0.7 may be released if bug fixes warrant it.
  • Downloads as of today: 17,166 of the parallel package (see bottom of this page for more details)
  • Jeff: working with Blue Waters test system and Juno Release
  • Mar. 20 is next Juno milestone - M6. We are not freezing API yet. Need to get build and packages resolved.
    • The contributed resource managers feature is not in the package. Should it be?
  • LinuxTools is moving to CDT (some of it). Need to discuss what's in our package
  • Build locations: on build.eclipse.org, 5.0.x/date directories - use a lot of disk space. Juno builds will only keep the last build in builds/juno/nightly. Greg will make an index.html page so it can be accessed via web.
  • PTP Juno release goals (Greg):
    • separation of control and monitoring in Resource Managers. In fact concept of resource managers will disappear.
    • Res Manager concept hurts usability. Future will not require pre-configuration of RM
      • On Launch page, just choose config file and connection
      • Output appears on a console directly.
    • Monitoring - e.g. on a system with a Job Scheduler
    • Legacy Resource Managers will still work. Perhaps a separate run configuration for these?
  • Environment Management (by Jeff) looks good
  • John Eblen - Synchronized Projects
    • Goals: 1. Merging Support 2. Relocation of projects copy/move/delete 3. New project wizard - waiting on CDT patch; Conversion wizard needs to match.
    • CDT new project wizard - "prototype" wizard available
    • Brian wants large project with multiple file systems, each pointing to (same) shared file system. Sync all? sync active?
  • Claudia - working on several bug fixes
    • unix MOTD foils remote monitoring - if it contains XML tags, it corrupts the data stream - Claudia will discuss at scaling meeting on Thursday
    • Usage bars are possible
    • decided against using net-table
  • Greg interested in knowing how to show usage bars
  • Wolfgang trying to get data from GPUs via job scheduler to show in system monitoring perspective
  • Paratools controls BG/Q via PBS - awaiting eclipse legal to contribute to PTP
  • Jeff - Photran bugs prioritized.
    • New PLDT extension point for analysis
    • Mariano (Argentina) working on new features
    • Chris Navarro has fixed debugger bug (wrong listener)
  • ETFW-Wyatt
  • DaveW - minor fixes only
  • User meeting - Jeff guest host; Galen covered gprof and gcov.
    • Next user meeting - reschedule so it doesn't conflict with EclipseCon - move to April 4
  • CDT would like remote support without depending on RDT - but no agreement on how to integrate in CDT. May be interested in sync. project too.
  • Next meeting April 10
    • Tuesday is CDT summit @ EclipseCon
