AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 18 -- Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single- and multicore environments today announced the launch of Acumem ThreadSpotter. ThreadSpotter helps programmers find performance problems especially for multithreaded applications.
Acumem patented technology allows programmers of multicore or multithreaded systems to fully utilize the performance of their system in a very simple and user friendly way. Through the launch of Acumem ThreadSpotter, Acumem provides application developers new insight into what goes on inside a processor at execution.
Acumem ThreadSpotter is the only software analysis tool for the complete set of multicore software issues. It helps programmers identify and eliminate multicore bottlenecks by looking at:
Just as Acumem SlowSpotter, ThreadSpotter identifies an application's slowspots, i.e., parts of the code that can be improved to run faster. For each slowspot, the location in the source code is identified, fixes for how the problem can be avoided are suggested and the overall importance for application improvement is presented.
The technology is hardware and language independent and for example works for C, C++, Fortran, Ada, and Assembler. It also has support for Linux and Solaris and is currently being ported to Windows.
"By launching Acumem ThreadSpotter we take another step towards showing the full potential of our technology," says Mats Hovmoller, CEO of Acumem. "By using ThreadSpotter, programmers will be able to make performance improvements that were previously extremely difficult to identify. With the use of ThreadSpotter terms and issues like Memory Bandwidth, Memory Latency, Data Locality and Thread Communication become available and possible to influence for all programmers," he adds.
Acumem will present Acumem ThreadSpotter at SuperComputing in Austin at the following venues:
Acumem is a provider of intelligent software, which analyzes and optimizes the computing performance in single- and multicore environments. Acumem contributes to its customers' success in maximizing the benefits of multicore technology, achieving the full potential of their systems. Acumem has partnerships with leading companies in the multicore market such as Sun. Acumem is a privately-eld company based in Uppsala, Sweden. www.acumem.com.

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
