ZIMT has financed the purchase of the TotalView debugger by the company Rogue Wave Software. TotalView is used for debugging parallel C, C++ and Fortran programs. The installed version is 2017.3.8.

The PDF files in /cm/shared/apps/TotalView/doc/pdf contain the extensive documentation of TotalView. On the login nodes, the command

Using TotalView

In order to debug with TotalView you have to compile your program with the -g option (this is true for both GCC and Intel compilers). That way, debug information is generated and inserted into the output files. The command totalview then launches the debugger.

$ cc -g try.c -o myprog 
$ totalview myprog
