TotalView Technologies announces Totalview 8.2
New Version of Award-Winning Debugger Extends Platform Support
Dresden, Germany – June 26, 2007 – TotalView Technologies, the world’s
leading provider of scaleable debugging and analysis software solutions for
the multi-core age, today announced the availability of TotalView Debugger
8.2. This updated version of TotalView provides new features and support
for important new platforms, allowing a greater range of users to benefit
from the product’s capabilities.
TotalView is a comprehensive source code and optional memory debugging
solution that dramatically enhances developer productivity by simplifying
the process of debugging data-intensive, multi-process, multi-threaded, or
network-distributed applications. Built to handle the complexities of the
world’s most demanding applications, TotalView is capable of scaling from
one to thousands of processes or threads with applications distributed over
multiple machines or processors.
TotalView Debugger is the only product on the market that supports mixed
environments including mixed parallel paradigms (Open MP and MPI) and mixed
languages (Fortran 90 and C++, for example) in one debugging session, and
mixed versions of compilers in one session. TotalView supports over 2,500
compiler variations and countless combinations of parallel programming
paradigms and compilers. TotalView is robust and easy to use, with an
intuitive GUI that enables users to quickly isolate and identify the root
cause of problems.
New features of TotalView 8.2 include:
SiCortex delivers ultra-low power, high-performance Linux computers for the
HPC market. TotalView will now support debugging parallel applications on
the new SiCortex supercomputer.
Cray XT4 Support and APLs Integration
The Cray XT4 is the latest generation massively parallel processor system
from Cray. TotalView will support the Cray XT4 platform and provide support
and documentation of support for the Cray job launcher used in the XT4.
Fedora Core 6 Support
Fedora Core 6, the community-supported Linux distribution, adds support for
Intel-based Macs, in addition to the previously supported x86, x86-64 and
PowerPC chip architectures. TotalView now includes support for Fedora Core
Expanded Mac Support: Preliminary Mac OS X Leopard Support, 64-bit
Mac-Intel Support and Mac Universal Binaries Support
Mac OS X Leopard is the sixth major release of the Mac operating system.
Leopard includes new technologies that take advantage of the latest
developments in processor hardware with full native 64-bit support to
enable applications to take complete advantage of 64-bit processing while
running with existing 32-bit Mac OS X applications, along with drivers and
easy multi-core optimization and scheduling to take advantage of the latest
Intel hardware. TotalView 8.2 has been engineered to support the Mac OS X
Leopard operating system, and also supports debugging binaries that are
Power/Intel-32/Intel-64, all combined into one executable.
Ubuntu is a community-developed Linux-based operating system for the
desktop, laptop, thin client and server. TotalView will support
applications developed on this new platform.
Fortran Parameter Display
TotalView will be able to display the value of Fortran parameters, which
can be used like variables in expressions but could not previously be
examined within the debugger.
Source Code Hot-Scrolling
TotalView 8.2 offers an improved Source Code window that allows users to
more easily scan through code looking for recognizable objects.
“As new computing platforms for high-performance and commercial computing
continue to emerge, we are committed to providing the most comprehensive,
robust debugging tools to work with them,” said Rich Collier, CEO of
TotalView Technologies. “This latest version of TotalView extends support
to a number of important new platforms, ensuring that more developers can
benefit from the productivity- and quality-enhancing capabilities of the
TotalView Technologies will be exhibiting at this week’s International
Supercomputing Conference in Dresden, Germany, in booth D08-D10.
