UPPSALA, Sweden, Dec. 16 -- Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single- and multicore environments, today announced the launch of its new Acumem ThreadSpotter 2010 product. Acumem is continuing to quickly develop and improve its technology and making the improvements available to customer. At SuperComputing 2009 Acumem released Acumem ThreadSpotter 2010.
ThreadSpotter 2010 brings new analysis capabilities in the form of suggestions of ways to improve performance by reducing cache pollution. Applications often fill the caches with data that is never reused before being evicted, and that therefore does not benefit from caching. ThreadSpotter now finds the locations in the code responsible for this cache pollution and suggests ways to avoid allocating cache space for the data. This improves performance by leaving more cache space for other data structures that do benefit from caching, and for other threads and applications that share the caches in multicore systems.
The new version also brings a major speed up of the sampling of multithreaded applications, often speeding up the sampling of heavily multithreaded applications by more than 10 times. This furthers improves the usability of the tool, especially when working with heavily threaded applications.
Existing customers can now download the new version at www.acumem.com.
Acumem's technology enables owners of systems and applications to get the best performance from their system or application in both single- and multicore environments. Acumem ThreadSpotter has proven to increase throughput in many applications by a factor of five or more, improving general scalability, saving processor cycles and decreasing power consumption.
Acumem is a provider of intelligent software that analyzes and optimizes application software 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 works closely with leading companies in the multicore market such as HP, Sun, Microsoft, Intel, IBM and AMD. Acumem is a privately held company based in Uppsala, Sweden.

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...
Although Horst Simon was named Deputy Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, he maintains his strong ties to the scientific computing community as an editor of the TOP500 list and as an invited speaker at conferences.

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.
