Release Note for Release History Allinea Forge 7.0

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.6:

  • Add pretty-printers for debugging Qt 5 strings.
  • Updated recommended Intel compiler flags (user guide section E6).
  • Fixed a bug affecting --stop-after on some SLES 11 systems.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.5:

  • Fix OS/X application signing.
  • Fix missing identifiers in Fortran derived data types.
  • Improve support for breakpoints in functions without debug info on little-endian PowerPC systems.
  • Fix a conflict with the Cray C++ STL library when using static linking.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.4:

  • Fix an issue with dlsym under IBM Spectrum MPI that affected profiling of hybrid MPI+OpenMP codes.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.3:

  • Add support for shmem_init_thread() to DDT.
  • Fix issue related to Intel KNL high bandwidth memory debugging.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.2:

  • Allow attaching to SLURM jobs when srun is wrapped in a script.
  • New I/O functions tracked: pread_nocancel and pwrite_nocancel.
  • Add auto-detection support for PlatformMPI
  • Include cumulative memory statistics for hbw_memalign and hbw_realloc.
  • Add MP_IN_PLACE and MPI_BOTTOM support to SGI MPT wrappers.
  • Fix a rare crash in offline mode.
  • Include metrics SDK documentation in map/metrics/doc/.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0.1:

  • Call allinea_plugin_cleanup in custom metrics at the end of a profiling job.
  • Make a "onePerNode" attribute available for custom metrics that should only collect one process of each node.
  • Fix a bug that prevented high-bandwidth memory allocations being tracked correctly.
  • Fix an issue that caused incorrect summation values in some tooltips.

Changes for Allinea Forge 7.0:

  • Add metrics to MAP based on PAPI counters, including rates of cache misses, FLOPS and cycles per instruction.
  • Add Lustre metadata metrics to the Advanced Metrics Pack add-on.
  • Allow profiling of programs that use MPI_THREAD_MULTIPLE and MPI_THREAD_SERIALIZED (MPI calls tracked on main thread only).
  • DDT and MAP now support Spectrum MPI (mpirun mode) for IBM Power (PPC64le little-endian, POWER8).
  • MAP profiler data can now be exported as JSON for use with continuous integration and regression testing systems.
  • Totals across all processes / nodes now appear in the metric graph tooltips in MAP.
  • Provide module files to simplify static and dynamic linking of the Allinea profiler libraries on the Cray (in share/modules/cray).
  • DDT now decorates the memory allocations displayed in both the Memory Usage and Memory Statistics dialogs with memory kind data.
  • Enhance display of Fortran multi-dimensional arrays.
  • Add support for preloading custom metrics libraries to MAP.
  • Fix issue with reverse connect feature being blocked by some firewalls.
  • Fix the pointer details dialog not working for some class, struct and union types.
  • Fix reported location for function breakpoints when restoring a debugging session in DDT.
  • Fix CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES value for srun launch.
  • Fix an issue in which Job Submission Settings were not saved in session files.
  • Fix a linker error on some Cray systems that occured when explicitly linking Allinea libraries.
  • Categorise OpenACC-CUDA functions as GPU functions.
