TotalView previews reverse debugging

TotalView announced this week they’ll be previewing “reverse debugging” at SC07 next week

TotalView logoWith this new capability, developers will be able to “back up” during a debugging session to help identify a bug as it is happening, improving the efficiency of debugging sessions by eliminating the need to run a program multiple times.

TotalView Technologies’ new reverse debugging features will allow developers to:

  • Capture and replay the exact behavior of the program from any point in the past during a single debugging session;
  • Step backward from crashes and out of functions to see what went wrong;
  • Jump forward and backward to examine and compare any set of points along the captured execution sequence;
  • Replay thread context switches exactly as they happened;
  • Seamlessly and clearly switch between record mode and replay mode.
