"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."
