The integrated development environment (IDE) is an Eclipse PTP-based development environment that lets developers edit, compile, run, and debug their applications all from within the framework. The IDE editor increases developer productivity with coding assist tools such as interactive code completion and syntax-directed highlighting of source code.

The performance analysis tools integrated with the IDE help developers locate performance problems in their application code, including tools to analyze CPU resource usage, MPI profiling and tracing, and I/O profiling.

These performance management tools may improve systems availability. Performance management tools allow you to optimize the use of computing resources, thereby protecting those investments. The performance tools provided by IBM PE Developer Edition can help you understand the utilization of system resources concurrently so you can balance your workloads or tune programs. By maximizing system resource utilization, you can optimize your system and network performance.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM . Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
