Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB 2.0) on RRZE systems
On Woody and Altix the current version of Intel’s TBB library is now installed. TBB is a C++ framework for shared-memory parallel programming. If you are fed up with marrying C++ and OpenMP, TBB might be the right choice. Use it by loading the
tbb/2.0-debug modules, respectively. On Cluster32 you can access the modules from Woody by typing, e.g.,
module use /apps/modules/modulefiles/libraries, but remember that we have only provided a 64 bit version. The library was compiled with the Intel compiler and we don’t guarantee that it will work with anything else. Documentation can be found on the TBB website:
We are very much interested in sharing experiences with all users of the library. So please if you have comments or questions, contact hpc@rrze.
