TotalView Provides Early Access to Massive Scale Debugging

Today Rogue Wave Software announced the beta release of its leading parallel debugger, TotalView 8.13. This beta release allows customers to work with an early-access version of the scalable architecture used to complete the successful 786,432 core debugging test announced at SC12. The architecture that set the record for debugging at scale has shown increased performance over TotalView 8.12 during tests on the latest generation Cray and IBM BlueGene supercomputers, as well as Linux clusters.

We are excited to bring early-access scalability to our customers with support for some of the largest systems currently in use,” said Chris Gottbrath, Principal Product Manager at Rogue Wave. “We encourage vigorous use and detailed feedback to help us ensure the solution is stable and responsive for general availability launch.”

TotalView 8.13 also adds support for CUDA 5.0 and 5.5, including dynamic parallelism capabilities. This expanded support allows TotalView to work seamlessly with NVIDIA’s latest hardware offering, the Kepler K40.

In addition, TotalView 8.13 expands support for debugging on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. For the first time, users can debug applications running in Xeon Phi symmetric mode with seamless transitions when the code shifts between processor and coprocessor. TotalView’s MemoryScape has become the first memory debugging solution available for Xeon Phi applications.
