Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Etnus, the leading supplier of parallel application debuggers
for the UNIX and Linux markets, today announced the rapid adoption
of TotalView, the first parallel debugger and analyzer to address
the needs of the Linux market."
A "Linux Developer Opinion Survey", recently conducted by
research house Evans Marketing Services, indicated a lack of
adequate development tools for Linux. "We began addressing the need
for advanced Linux cluster development tools earlier this year when
we introduced a Linux version of the Etnus TotalView debugger and
analyzer," explained Chris Doehlert, president and CEO of Etnus.
"In recent months, we've seen a two-fold increase in the demand for
TotalView on Linux platforms. This clearly indicates that as Linux
clusters become more commonplace, there is a corresponding need for
quality development tools."
"TotalView is the only multiprocess, multithread application
debugger/analyzer that supports Fortran, C and C++ languages along
with the major parallel programming paradigms including MPI,
threads, and OpenMP. GUI-based, it shortens development time
via an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use "select-and-dive" approach. It
enables developers to unravel and control multiple threads and
processes running on single or multiple processor systems."
