European universities select TotalView by Rogue Wave

Rogue Wave Software, a provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components for the next generation of HPC applications, has revealed that TotalView has been selected by both the University of Luxembourg and University of Strasbourg to debug complex, multi-threaded applications.

A research-oriented institution, the University of Luxembourg is focused on the creation of new knowledge and sets a high priority on a select number of well-defined fields of research. The University of Luxembourg chose TotalView due to its robust, advanced features, such as advanced memory debugging, reverse debugging, and Cuda debugging.

With a wide variety of teams planning to use TotalView, University officials said that the debugging tool will be used on a number of development projects, such as numerical simulations in engineering and material sciences, molecular dynamics for life science, parallel and distributed algorithms in computer science, and bioinformatics.

TotalView will be used on the University’s two Linux clusters: the 'Chaos', a 992-core cluster machine with 73 nodes and the 'Gaia', a 1440-core cluster machine with 170 nodes.

'TotalView enables our research teams to develop and debug all of their applications faster, from simple prototypes to advanced, multi-threaded applications,' stated Sébastien Varrette, manager of the HPC department of the University of Luxembourg. 'Our teams are experts in bioinformatics and engineering, but not supercomputers. With TotalView, they can leverage the easy-to-use, advanced debugging features to quickly debug their applications, so they can focus on their research goals.'
