Usage

DDT is available through modules

module load debugger/forge


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


Examples

starting the application from inside DDT

Get an interactive job and set up the environment within

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.

Usage on HAWK

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

module load forge
ddt


Then, you have to execute the program you want to debug in a separate shell either via a job script or an interactive job as follows: Load the forge module in your job script or interactive job and modify your mpirun command line therein

module load forge
ddt --connect mpirun ...


After some time a connection request window will pop up in the ddt GUI. Accept the request and you will get the ddt run window to start debugging.
