TotalView® Provides Open Early Access of Massive Scale Debugging

TotalView 8.13 Adds CUDA™ 5.5 Support for NVIDIA® Kepler™ GPU Accelerators and Memory Debugging for Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components, announced an update release of its leading parallel debugger, TotalView 8.13. This release allows customers to work with the scalable architecture used to complete the successful 786,432 core debugging test announced at SC12. The architecture that set the record for debugging at scale has shown increased performance over TotalView 8.12 during tests on the latest generation Cray® and IBM® BlueGene™ supercomputers, as well as Linux®-based clusters.

"We are excited to bring greatly enhanced scalability and performance at scale to our customers with support for some of the largest systems currently in use," said Chris Gottbrath, principal product manager at Rogue Wave. "We're proud to have TotalView be the tool of choice for debugging applications that scale across hundreds of thousands of cores."

TotalView 8.13 also adds support for CUDA 5.0 and 5.5, including dynamic parallelism capabilities. This expanded support allows TotalView to work seamlessly with NVIDIA's latest hardware offering, the Kepler K40.

Additionally, TotalView 8.13 expands support for debugging on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. For the first time, users can debug applications running in Xeon Phi symmetric mode to take advantage of the computational power of both the host processor and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. TotalView's MemoryScape is the first memory debugging solution available for Xeon Phi applications.

TotalView 8.13 introduces:

  • Early access of scalable debugging solution
  • CUDA 5.0 and 5.5 support
  • Xeon Phi symmetric mode support
  • Xeon Phi native and symmetric modes memory debugging
  • Apple® Macintosh OS X Mavericks support
  • Significant performance improvements

TotalView is a scalable and intuitive debugger for parallel applications written in C, C++, and Fortran. Designed to improve developer productivity, TotalView simplifies and shortens the process of developing, debugging, and optimizing complex applications. TotalView provides a powerful combination of capabilities for pinpointing and fixing hard-to-find bugs, such as race conditions, memory leaks, and memory overruns. Providing developers the ability to step freely, both forwards and backwards, through program execution, TotalView's unique reverse debugging capabilities drastically reduce the amount of time invested in troubleshooting code.
