Debugging Functionality in Intel Parallel Studio Cluster Edition

I am new to using Intel's Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition.  I am used to using Gdb and Valgrind for debugging.  I have just begun using Intel Inspector XE.  I was wondering if there is any capability in the Parallel Studio XE Cluster package to step through parallel programs and investigate/change individual variable values similar to Gdb, as well as, step different processors independently?  I have not been able to find that functionality as of yet.  Thanks!

No. Inspector is helpful to find issues but can not change variable directly, usually that is post-analysis. When the user modifes source code then recompile it to inspect again.

However, Inspector has seamless connection to debugger if you add option "-appdebug on-error ", which jumps to GNU debugger GDB* by default.
