Supported Platforms

The SCALASCA tool set has been successfully tested on the following platforms:
  • IBM BlueGene/L
  • IBM SP clusters
  • Cray XT3
  • Sun Fire clusters
  • SGI Altix

However, since the code is fairly portable, it is likely to work on other systems as well. The supplied makefile definition files may provide a good basis for building and testing the toolset on other platforms.


To install and use all components of the SCALASCA tool set, the following software is needed:
  • GNU make
  • libxml2, an XML toolkit
  • wxWidgets, a cross-plattform GUI library

    • Use wxGTK, version 2.6.x
    • SCALASCA does not work with wxX11 or wxMSW
    • wxMac and other ports have not been tested
  • GTK+
    • wxGTK is based on either GTK1 or GTK2
    • GTK1 (latest release 1.2.10) is known to work and is easier to install
