Lawrence Livermore Increases Usage of Rogue Wave Acumem Software

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Rogue Wave Software, Inc., the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components for the next generation of HPC applications, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) today announced that LLNL will increase its usage of Rogue Wave's performance debugger, Acumem ThreadSpotter.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is a premier national security laboratory, with a mission to advance and apply science and technology to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. nuclear deterrent; reduce or counter threats to national and global security; enhance the energy and environmental security of the nation and strengthen the nation's economic competitiveness.

LLNL has used Acumem's tools for code optimization since early 2009. "The national security research we conduct requires computational technology that allows programmers to optimize their codes and thereby get the best performance from their systems. By working with industry leaders, such as Acumem, LLNL is able to do some of the most advanced software development for some of the world's most powerful supercomputers faster while reducing costs," said Mike Kumbera, a LLNL software engineer.

"We are delighted to see LLNL extend and expand their use of our tools and we're proud to do our part in helping the labs execute their mission," said Brian Pierce, Rogue Wave CEO. "Whether it's a supercomputing center like LLNL, or the IT shop of a commercial enterprise, Rogue Wave's mission is to make the development of parallel, data-intensive applications... easier. ThreadSpotter, in particular is easy to use, making this an ideal tool for both performance experts and non-experts to optimize their code for multicore performance."

About Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is a premier national security laboratory, with a mission to advance and apply science and technology to: ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. nuclear deterrent; reduce or counter threats to national and global security; enhance the energy and environmental security of the nation and strengthen the nation's economic competitiveness.

The Laboratory was established in 1952 at the height of the Cold War to meet urgent national security needs by advancing nuclear weapons science and technology. Renowned physicists E.O. Lawrence and Edward Teller argued for the creation of a second laboratory to augment the efforts of the laboratory at Los Alamos.

As Lawrence Livermore enters its sixth decade, its focus remains as clear as it was on the first day the Laboratory opened its doors in 1952 -- ensuring the nation's security through scientific research and engineering development, responding to new threats in an ever-changing world, and developing new technologies that will benefit people everywhere.

About Acumem ThreadSpotter

ThreadSpotter eliminates performance issues by analyzing memory bandwidth and latency, data locality, and thread communications/interaction, to pinpoint performance issues. Unlike traditional profilers that gather data but provide little analysis, Acumem provides specific guidance on performance issues by identifying them, estimating each issue's importance (and rank ordering them), and guiding the developer to the location in the source code where the issues are located.
