"Overview of the TotalView Debugger"

Chris Gottbrath, TotalView Technologies Product Manager, will present an overview of the TotalView debugger. TotalView provides scientists, engineers, and developers with the ability to easily debug parallel applications, such as those written using MPI to run on clusters of Linux boxes or the IBM BlueGene supercomputer; multithreaded
applications, such as those written to take advantage of dual core or SMP machines; and scientific applications that are written on Linux, Unix or Apple OS X using C, C++, Fortran 77 or Fortran 90. TotalView features advanced data display and visualization, which is designed to help scientists monitor the working data within their simulations. The integrated Memory Debugger in the TotalView Source Code Debugger makes it easy to track down things like leaks in anything from a single process application running on a workstation to a BGL application
composed of thousands of processes.

The presentation will feature a live demo and Q & A session. The information will be valuable to anyone developing, thinking of developing, or overseeing the development of scientific or engineering simulations or other software on BU's BlueGene supercomputer, pSeries or Linux clusters, or individual Unix, Linux or Apple workstations.
