Scalasca is available to all users of HPC2N.
Scalasca is a software tool that supports the performance optimization of parallel programs by measuring and analyzing their runtime behavior.
The analysis identifies potential performance bottlenecks -- in particular those concerning communication and synchronization -- and offers guidance in exploring their causes.
On HPC2N we have Scalasca available as a module on Kebnekaise.
To use the Scalasca module, first add it to your environment. Use:
module spider scalasca
to see which versions are available, as well as how to load the module and the needed prerequisites.
Note that while the case does not matter when you use "ml spider", it is necessary to match the case when loading the modules.
You can read more about loading modules on our Accessing software with Lmod page and our Using modules (Lmod) page.
You get some help on how to run by typing 'scalasca' with no arguments:
