Usage

DDT is available through modules

module load debugger/ddt


Note: Do not forget to compile your application with debugging info (-g option)


Examples

starting the application from inside DDT

Set up the environment

module load debugger/forge module load mpi/openmpi


Compile your application

mpicc -g your_app.c -o your_app


Start DDT:

ddt your_app


Select the right MPI Implementation in the Options and run your program.

Hazel Hen special

To debug a program with ddt on Hazel Hen you have to use the Reverse Connection feature. Therefore first launch ddt on a login node:

module load forge
ddt


Load the forge module in your job script or interactive job and modify your aprun command line therein

module load forge
ddt --connect aprun ...


Nec Nehalem Cluster special

If you want to debug a parallel Program using Open MPI with DDT on the NEC Nehalem Cluster select 'OpenMPI (Compatibility)' as the desired MPI Implementation.


Cray XT5m special

If your program does IO take care to start an interactive session from the correct directory.
