TotalView debugger update

TotalView Technologies today unveiled an update to its TotalView Individual Edition Debugger for Mac OS X that supports source code debugging on quad-core machines. The software allows developers working on Mac systems to either completely debug an application on a workstation or maximize productivity by beginning debugging activities before transferring to scarce large-scale development machines, according to TotalView. "TotalView is a comprehensive source code and optional memory debugging solution that dramatically enhances developer productivity by simplifying the process of debugging parallel, data-intensive, multi-process, multi-threaded or network-distributed applications," the company said. TotalView Individual Edition Debugger for Mac OS X is priced at $850 for the quad-core version and $560 for the single and dual-core version.

The software supports mixed environments -- including mixed parallel paradigms (OpenMP and MPI) -- as well as mixed languages like FORTRAN 90 and C++ in one debugging session. TotalView also features an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that enables users to quickly isolate and identify the root cause of problems.

"Our TotalView Individual Edition license allows Mac developers access to the same award-winning technology that has been used for more than 20 years to debug multi-process and multi-threaded programs, on a laptop or single workstation," said Dick Andersen, vice president of marketing at TotalView Technologies. "This brings a tremendous benefit to developers who need a simple but robust everyday debugger to continually use while developing programs that run on workstations or large scale HPC systems."
