TotalView is Free for Students

Are you a full-time student? You qualify for free access to TotalView Express Student Edition, the industry-leading code debugging tool for high-performance computing (HPC) applications.

This easy-to-use tool not only helps you debug code quickly and easily, it will help you learn to write better code while you’re doing it.

  • Gain a better understanding of how code logic works in HPC environments, with a dynamic analysis tool that lets you see what’s happening with the code while the application is running.
  • Get real-world experience with a debugging tool used by global businesses, research labs and major institutions — a tool you may be using on the job someday.
  • Quickly find bugs and failures in your code with TotalView’s reverse debugging feature.
  • Debug up to multiple threads or processes simultaneously, making the most efficient use of precious time on your school’s HPC server.
  • Spend less time debugging and more time working on your school or research projects.
