February 17, 2005. Natick, MA - Etnus, the provider of the most advanced debugger on Linux and UNIX, today announced that TotalView 6.7, featuring a sophisticated Graphical Heap Browser with granularity down to the single block, memory view filtering, and exportable memory debugging data is available for download.
TotalView is an advanced 32- and 64-bit graphical debugger providing software engineers with complete control over threaded and parallel applications written in C, C++ or Fortran. Not your average debugger, TotalView also provides unique, proprietary memory debugging technology that neither instruments code nor alters libraries. TotalView's memory debugging features are fully integrated into the debugger. And, the user experience is enhanced by an on-demand, view-based approach that eliminates the need to wait for post-mortem style reports common in stand-alone memory tools.
Version 6.7 further enhances TotalView’s advanced memory debugging experience. The new sophisticated Graphical Heap Browser displays an easy to read map of a program’s heap, with granularity down to the single block, denoting block status by color. At a glance, users see the entirety of heap activity, including which blocks are leaking memory. Users can select an individual block for more information, and get a back trace from the selected block, allowing them to easily identify the source of the error in the code. Because TotalView’s memory debugger is interactive and on-demand, users view heap status dynamically as they debug their program.
Other memory debugging enhancements include the ability to filter out unwanted information, export memory debugging data to other files for analysis and visualization by other applications, and broader ability to customize debugging sessions.
Long known for it's superior ability to debug parallel and threaded code, TotalView offers the developer unrivaled ability to debug applications that are multithreaded, or use MPI and/or OpenMP. Advanced features, such as heap allocation debugging, data analysis, and STLView for easy reading of standard template library data, provide unique capabilities to find and eliminate problems in complex applications.
TotalView is available for most major Linux and UNIX platforms, with prices starting under $600. Free, fully functional trials can be downloaded at www.etnus.com.
