Arm versions of Ellexus’ tools are here

We’re pleased to announce that we have release versions of our flagship tools Mistral, Breeze and Healthcheck on the Arm v8-A architecture. The move is part of our strategy to provide cross-platform support that gives engineers a uniform tooling experience across different hardware platforms.

We have also announced that we are integrating our tools with Arm Forge and Arm Performance Reports, market-leading tools for debugging, profiling and optimizing high performance applications, previously known as Allinea (see screenshot pic).

The integration takes advantage of a custom metrics API in the Arm tools, allowing third parties to plug into them and enable contextual analysis of more targeted performance metrics. The integration with Arm tools will provide an even more comprehensive suite of I/O profiling tools at a time when optimization has never been so important.

Tim Whitfield, vice president and general manager, Technology Services Group at Arm, said: “Arm is always looking for ways to further optimize our high-performance application estate, and as we continue to scale up and out this has never been more important. Arm and Ellexus are continuing a deep collaboration in this space to provide a comprehensive tools suite for HPC.”

On the decision to release versions based on Arm, our CEO Rosemary, said, “As the high-performance computing industry targets new compute architectures and cloud infrastructures, it’s never been more important to optimise the way programs access large data sets. Bad I/O patterns can harm shared storage and will limit application performance, wasting millions in lost engineering time.

“We are extremely excited to announce the integration of our tools with the Arm tool suite. Together we will be able to help more organisations to get the most out of their compute clusters.”
