Overview
Bottom rule

IBM PE Developer Edition consolidates a toolkit and open source tools into a framework to allow easy access to an application development environment, including performance analysis tools to satisfy the following requirements:

  • Edit, compile, run, and debug an application from within an IDE
  • Analyze application performance for serial and parallel applications using the same IDE
  • Easily run and debug parallel applications using IBM PE interactively through the IDE
  • Submit batch serial or parallel jobs to Tivoli® Workload Scheduler LoadLeveler® using the IDE

IBM PE Developer Edition consists of two major components: IBM High Performance Computing (HPC) Toolkit for the cluster servers and a workbench component for client machines.

  • Toolkit (server) component: runs on Power® 775 servers
    • The IBM HPC Toolkit offers an integrated software environment that addresses the performance analysis, tuning, and debugging of serial and parallel scientific applications.
    • SCI is a communication library and run time for a tools developer to code to that will scale on a large cluster.
  • Workbench (client) component: runs on laptop/desktop machines
    • Eclipse and Parallel Tools Platform (PTP) provide a highly integrated development environment, specifically designed for parallel application development.

Description
Bottom rule

The integrated development environment (IDE) is an Eclipse PTP-based development environment that lets developers edit, compile, run, and debug their applications all from within the framework. The IDE editor increases developer productivity with coding assist tools such as interactive code completion and syntax-directed highlighting of source code.

The performance analysis tools integrated with the IDE help developers locate performance problems in their application code, including tools to analyze CPU resource usage, MPI profiling and tracing, OpenMP profiling, and I/O profiling.

These performance management tools may improve systems availability. Performance management tools allow clients to optimize the use of computing resources, thereby protecting those investments. The performance tools provided by IBM PE Developer Edition can help you understand the utilization of system resources concurrently so you can balance your workloads or tune programs. By maximizing system resource utilization, clients can optimize their system and network performance.

Electronic Software Update Orders
Bottom rule

Entitled Software Update (ESU) is a way for customers to self order their Power software release upgrades via the Entitled Software Support (ESS) website without the need to go to their seller to place the upgrade order. Entitled Software Update (ESU) orders for Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) is now available in all countries.

ESU orders for software will be placed on the Entitled Software Support (ESS) website

https://www-05.ibm.com/servers/eserver/ess/OpenServlet.wss

Customers should generally select electronic delivery when ordering via ESU, but do have the ability to select physical delivery. Programs ordered for ESD will have the same download images provided as on the CD media shipped for physical orders. Countries requiring physical delivery of License Information documentation will have these documents shipped separately. This physical shipment will not delay the immediate availability of the ESD images for customer download.

ESD customers placing ESD software orders will receive an email with the software order information. The ESU customer will be able to immediately proceed to the Downloads website for program access, instead of waiting for delivery of a physical package shipped from IBM.

Customers choosing physical delivery will also have the electronic images available for ESD download.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
