Debug applications running in your HPC environments faster with TotalView, by taking advantage of its abilities to:
- Support more than 20 different MPI implementations.
- Debug multithreaded applications with pthreads, OpenMP, and TBB.
- Easily establish interactive debugging sessions within your cluster — including through batch submission systems.
- Provide visualizations of program data and variables.
- Define how aggregate data in displayed, so you can see custom data structures in simpler forms.
- Debug programs using the CUDA and/or OpenACC models.
- Perform advanced memory debugging, including memory leaks and errors.
Speed issue resolution in HPC code by using the reverse debugging capability in TotalView to:
- Work back from a failure, error, or crash to its root cause.
- Record and replay:
- Heap memory usage.
- Process file and network I/O.
- Thread context switches.
- Multithreaded applications.
- MPI parallel applications.
- Distributed applications.
- Network applications.
- Step forward and backward by function, line, and instruction.
- Support continuous integration, collaboration, and code-learning by recording code.
- Eliminate restarting your program repeatedly with different breakpoints.
- Learn new code and deliver enhancements quicker.
Find memory leaks and buffer overruns with TotalView's scalable memory-debugging technology:
- Easily find memory leaks and understand heap usage.
- Detect malloc/free, new/delete API misuse.
- Detect buffer overruns.
- Share memory debugging data with colleagues through data files and HTML reports.
- Compare memory results between sessions to verify elimination of leaks.
- Save time and money with low overhead technology that does not require recompilation or instrumentation.
TotalView provides several mechanisms to make it easy to debug remotely.
Remote UI: Run with the full power of the TotalView User Interface from your local laptop or workstation and securely debug on a remote cluster or workstation.
Remote Display Client (RDC): Easily establish a remote desktop debugging session with TotalView running remotely on a cluster or workstation. Works with batch schedulers such as SLURM, PBS Pro and Load Leveler as well.
Customers can request the RDC for free via the software download form.
Reverse Connect: Easily submit your job into a cluster and, once run, a reverse connection is made back to a waiting TotalView allowing you to efficiently debug your code.
You can debug applications written in one or more of the following languages, using TotalView:
- C and C++
- Mixed-language applications written in Python and C/C++
The applications you debug using TotalView can run on the following operating systems:
- Linux including Cray Linux Environment (CLE) and PowerLE
