Bright Computing Bundles Rogue Wave TotalView Debugger

Rogue Wave Software, provider of cross-platform software development tools, has partnered with Bright Computing to deliver Rogue Wave’s TotalView advanced debugger in the Bright Cluster Manager product. Bright Computing customers will receive a scalable, multi-core debugger with both reverse and memory functions to boost productivity and shorten development lifecycles. This is being offered to Bright Computing customers via registration and download.

Bright Cluster Manager provisions, monitors and manages clusters on-premise and in the cloud, including all types of HPC clusters and server farms, such as CPU and GPU clusters, storage and database clusters, and big data Hadoop clusters. “It’s a good partnership for both of us; their customers get added value and we get introduced into new areas that Bright is moving in to,” Scott Lasica, vice president of product management and marketing at Rogue Wave, tells 5 Minute Briefing.

TotalView is a scalable debugger for parallel applications written in C, C++, and Fortran. By simplifying and shortening the process of developing, debugging, and optimizing applications, TotalView boosts developer productivity. It is able to pinpoint and fix hard-to-find bugs, such as race conditions, memory leaks, and memory overruns. Enabling developers to move forwards and backwards through program execution, TotalView’s reverse debugging capabilities reduce the amount of time invested in troubleshooting code. “Replay Engine allows the use of a debugger in reverse. If you accidentally go past the cause of the bug you’re trying to find you can simply back up, find it, and narrow in on it. All other solutions you can only go forward,” Lasica adds. TotalView also provides debugging support for NVIDIA CUDA, OpenACC and the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.
