The following is a list of the new and noteworthy changes in PTP 3.0.

External Tools Framework

Performance Tools Framework Name Changed

The Performance Tools Framework has now been renamed to the External Tools Framework (ETFw). All the associated plugins have been renamed to reflect the new naming.

External Tools Feedback View

Takes an XML file, presumably generated by an external tool (ETFw supported, or a compiler, or another performance tool, etc. etc. ) and produces an eclipse view with items mapped to source code lines.

Extension Point Additions

MPI Analysis

In-situ Partial Order (ISP)

Provides dynamic verification for MPI applications in order to detect deadlocks, assertion violation, and memory leaks. Offers rigorous coverage guarantees, including rigorous coverage of communication/synchronization behaviors, and determines relevant interleavings, replaying them as necessary. Supports MPICH2, Open MPI, Microsoft MPI, MVAPICH, and IBM MPI.

Remote Development Tools

Resource Managers

Support for SLURM

A new resource manager supporting the SLURM resource management system is now available.

Preliminary Support for PBM

A new resource manager for PBS has been included in the release. Currently this resource manager is a

  • Support for PBS
  • MPICH2 now uses the same RM infrastructure as Open MPI
  • RM's can now supply their own UI elements
  • RM's use service model for configuration information
