12. Debugging Open MPI Parallel Applications
Debugging a serial applications includes solving problems like logic errors, uninitialized variables, storage overlays and timing problems.
Debugging a parallel application can be further complicated by problems that can include additional race conditions and aysynchronous events, as well as understanding execution of multiple application processes running simultaneously.
This section of the documentation describes some techniques that can be useful for parallel debugging. This section also describes some tools that can be useful as well as some Open MPI runtime options that can aid debugging.
