IBM PE Developer Edition - US Announcement letters:

Note: as of the August 2013 1.3 release, PEDE is upgraded to Eclipse 4.3 (Kepler). Documentation on IBM HPC Toolkit is now available at the IBM Infocenter for Parallel Environment Developer Edition  . Updates for 1.3.0.2 were made available in October 2013.

The IBM PE Developer Edition provides an integrated development environment based on Eclipse that provides full life-cycle tools for developing parallel applications, including for C, C++, and Fortran. Additional support for IBM environments is provided.

IBM® Parallel Environment (PE) Developer Edition for provides an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that improves parallel application developer productivity throughout the edit, compile, debug, and run development cycle. It also includes an integrated set of performance analysis tools that help the application developer tune a serial or parallel application. IBM PE Developer Edition is now available for AIX, Linux on Power, and Linux on x86.

IBM PE Developer Edition is a companion to IBM PE Runtime Edition .

The IBM PE Developer Edition provides an integrated development environment based on Eclipse that provides full life-cycle tools for developing parallel applications, including for C, C++, and Fortran. Additional support for IBM environments is provided.

The components of IBM PE Developer Edition (1.3) include:

  • Eclipse 4.3 (Kepler)   platform and the following other Eclipse components
    • Parallel Tools Platform (PTP)   including the RDT (Remote Development Tools) and support for IBM Parallel Environment and LoadLeveler
      • PTP is an Eclipse based application development environment that contains an integrated set of tools to help you edit, compile, run, debug and analyze your parallel application. Advanced tools included with PTP include static analysis tools to locate errors before the code is compiled, refactoring tools to modify code while preserving behavior, and an integrated parallel debugger. PTP supports a broad range of architectures and job schedulers, and provides the ability to easily add support for additional systems.
    • C/C++ Development Tools (CDT)
      • Development tools for C/C++
    • Fortran Development Tools (Photran)
      • Development tools for Fortran, including state-of-the-art refactoring tools for Fortran.
  • IBM High Performance Computing Toolkit - Performance Analysis Tools
    • IBM HPC Toolkit is a collection of tools that you can use to analyze the performance of parallel and serial applications that are written in C or FORTRAN, running the Linux or AIX operating systems on IBM Power Systems Servers . The Xprof GUI also supports C++ applications. These tools perform the following functions:
      • Provide access to hardware performance counters for performing low level analysis of an application, including analyzing cache usage and floating-point performance.
      • Profile and trace an MPI application for analyzing MPI communication patterns and performance problems.
      • Profile an OpenMP application for analyzing OpenMP performance problems and to help you determine if an OpenMP application properly structures its processing for best performance.
      • Profile application I/O for analyzing an application's I/O patterns and whether you can improve the application's I/O performance.
      • Profile an application's execution for identifying hotspots in the application, and for locating relationships between functions in your application to help you better understand the application's performance.
    • Download the latest IBM HPC Toolkit User Guide.
  • IBM PAMI user assistance features
    • Provides features that augment the C/C++ Eclipse editor for ease of entering PAMI APIs, locating them in source code, getting information about API usage and arguments, etc.
  • IBM XLC and XLF Compiler Transformation Report Feedback Viewer
    • Provides a source-linked view of items identified by the IBM XLC/XLF Compiler Transformation reports
    • For details about transformation reports on optimization and other features of the IBM XL C/C++ and IBM XL FORTRAN compilers, see information on IBM AIX Compilers  and IBM Linux Compilers
