Acumem launches Acumem ThreadSpotter to help programmers with multithreaded applications
Posted by Mats Hovmoller, Tuesday November 18 2008 @ 05:28AM EST

Acumem, a provider of intelligent software for single- and multi-core environments today announces the launch of Acumem ThreadSpotter. ThreadSpotter helps programmers find performance problems especially for multithreaded applications.

Acumem patented technology allows programmers of multi-core or multithreaded systems to fully utilize the performance of their system in a very simple and user friendly way. Through the launch of Acumem ThreadSpotter, Acumem provides application developers new insight on what goes on inside a processor at execution.

Acumem ThreadSpotter is the only software analysis tool for the complete set of multi-core software issues. It helps programmers identify and eliminate multi-core bottlenecks by looking at:

- Multithreaded interaction
- Economic bandwidth usage
- Resourceful data handling

Just as Acumem SlowSpotter, ThreadSpotter identifies an application’s slowspots, i.e., parts of the code that can be improved to run faster. For each slowspot, the location in the source code is identified, fixes for how the problem can be avoided are suggested and the overall importance for application improvement is presented.

The technology is hardware and language independent and for example works for C, C++, Fortran, Ada, and Assembler. It also has support for Linux and Solaris and is currently being ported to Windows.

“By launching Acumem ThreadSpotter we take another step towards showing the full potential of our technology” says Mats Hovmoller, CEO of Acumem. “By using ThreadSpotter, programmers will be able to make performance improvements that were previously extremely difficult to identify. With the use of ThreadSpotter terms and issues like Memory Bandwidth, Memory Latency, Data Locality and Thread Communication become available and possible to influence for all programmers” he adds.

Acumem will present Acumem ThreadSpotter at SuperComputing in Austin at the following venues:

Tuesday, November 18th at 2:00PM, location 19A/19B –Vendor presentation

Wednesday, November 19th at 10:00AM, location Sun Theater (booth 1021)

Wednesday, November 19th at 2:30PM, location Intel Theater (booth 1609)
