Record and replay debugging race conditions and deadlocks in Linux applications.

ReplayEngine's deterministic replay capability records the execution history of your program and makes that history available for diagnosis with

. This new approach—working back from a failure, error, or crash to its root cause—eliminates the need to restart your program repeatedly with different breakpoint locations. The ability to do reverse debugging, stepping freely both forwards and backwards through program execution drastically reduces the amount of time invested in troubleshooting your code.

ReplayEngine can be used to debug applications written in C, C++ or Fortran and compiled with many of the compilers supported by TotalView on Linux x86 or Linux x86-64 platforms. ReplayEngine supports debugging MPI parallel, multi-threaded, and hybrid. ReplayEngine also allows long-running applications to be recorded, discarding the oldest part of the history when the space required for storing execution history would exceed user-specified limits.  To learn more about ReplayEngine, see the

  ReplayEngine is an add-on product to TotalView and requires it as a prerequisite.

Rogue Wave Products

Rogue Wave's products enable developers to harness the power of parallel applications and multicore computing while reducing the complexity of prototyping, developing, debugging, and optimizing multi-processor and data-intensive applications. A memory optimization tool that analyzes memory and thread communication in single and multicore systems, pinpoints performance issues and provides developers with specific guidance on how to correct them.


Rogue Wave > Products > TotalView® Family > TotalView

It allows you to debug one or many processes and/or threads with complete control over program execution, from basic debugging operations like stepping through code to sophisticated techniques that are becoming more commonplace in the high performance computing world. TotalView is a GUI-based source code defect analysis tool that gives you unprecedented control over processes and thread execution and visibility into program state and variables.

Traditional tools and methods for debugging and analyzing code, like GDB and print statements, are not appropriate for the challenges of complex application development. TotalView, MemoryScape, and ReplayEngine were natively built to handle this complexity, giving you the ability to analyze your code dynamically. Multi-core processing technology is forcing technical professionals to rethink the art of software development.


Rogue Wave > Products > TotalView Family > MemoryScape

MemoryScape is a graphical, dynamic memory analysis tool that helps developers, build engineers and QA engineers identify and resolve difficult memory problems in C, C++ and Fortran. Like TotalView, it's built natively to handle parallel, multi-process and multi-threaded programs.
