This is a bugfix release which provides a number of significant fixes. Therefore, we strongly encourage all users to update their installations. Below is the list of fixes and improvements:
Features of previous releases can be found in the changelog.
For a list of known limitations please read the open issues document.
The Scalasca tool set has been successfully tested on the following platforms:
- Cray XT5/6 & XE6/XK6
- Fujitsu FX10 & K computer
- IBM Blue Gene/Q
- IBM SP & BladeCenter clusters (AIX/Linux)
- NEC SX-9
- SGI Altix
- various Linux/Intel (x86/x64) clusters, including Intel Xeon Phi
The following platforms have not been tested recently, however, the supplied makefile definition files might still work on these systems:
- Cray XT3/4
- IBM Blue Gene/L & /P
- SiCortex systems
- Sun Solaris/SPARC-based clusters
- other NEC-SX systems
Since the code is fairly portable, it is also likely to work on other systems as well with modest effort by someone experienced with the intricacies of MPI libraries and compilers. The supplied Makefile definition files may provide a good basis for building and testing the toolset on other platforms.
