PGCC Server

by The Portland Group

C/C++ package with parallelizing ANSI C and C++ compilers and development tools. Includes the OpenMP parallel debugger/profiler.

Description | More information | Demos | Pricing | Sectors | Platforms

C++ and ANSI C for 32-bit and 64-bit AMD64 and IA32 processor-based servers.

PGCC« Server is PGI's C and C++ only compiler bundle for multi-user systems and workgroups. PGCC Server includes multi-user network floating licenses for both the PGI C and PGI C++ compilers, for PGDBG« OpenMP Linux graphical debugger (not currently available on Microsoft*I Windows*) and for PGPROF« graphical OpenMP Linux performance profiler (command-level only on Windows).

PGCC Server includes The Portland Group's native parallelizing/optimizing C++ (Linux-only) and ANSI C compilers for 32-bit and 64-bit Linux and 32-bit Windows servers and workstations, The C++ compiler closely tracks the proposed ANSI standard and is compatible with cfront versions 2 and 3. The PGCC Server compilers are native parallelizing C++ and ANSI C compilers. All C++ functions are compatible with Fortran and C functions, so you can compose programs from components written in all three languages. C++ function overloading, function inlining, multiple inheritance, and templates are all fully supported. A common set of OpenMP parallelization pragmas across C and C++ provide for simple and effective localized parallel programming without the need for explicit threads calls. Every copy of PGCC Server ships with standard C++ STL library binaries.

The PGCC Server compilers and OpenMP Linux debugger/profiler allow multiple users to compile, debug and profile high performance parallel C or C++ applications on any compatible computer networked to the system on which the PGI compilers are installed (a network-floating license). PGCC Server allows debugging and profiling on up to 16 processors or threads while allowing multiple simultaneous users of the Server products. Executables are constrained to use at most 16 processors/threads. There are also no parallel runtime fees of any kind -- the executables produced by PGCC Server compilers can be executed on any compatible system regardless of whether the PGI compilers are installed.

System Requirements

  • Processor: 32-bit x86, 64-bit AMD64 technology or 64-bit IA32 EM64T processor-based workstation or server with one or more AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon/AthlonXP, Intel Pentium II/III/4 or Intel Xeon/Xeon-64 microprocessors.
  • Operating System: PGCC, PGC++, PGDBG and PGPROF require Red Hat Linux 7.0 or higher, Linux Enterprise Server 8 (SLES 8), SuSE 9.0 and 9.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3.0 or Fedora Core 2. Fully interoperable with newer versions of Linux which use kernel revision 2.2.10 and glibc 2.2.x. PGCC is also compatible with Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP.
