PARIS – The Military Application Division (DAM) of the French Atomic Energy Agency (CEA) has selected the debugger from TotalView Technologies, LLC. (Natick, Massachusetts) so as to streamline the development and maintain the integrity of its mission-critical applications.
A key mission of the CEA/DAM is to develop a set of applications, including nuclear physics, atomic and plasmas physics, materials behavior, unstable or turbulent multiphase flows, optics and electromagnetism.
Large and complex, the programs involve multiple processors and millions of lines of code. Consequently, the CEA/DAM said the TotalView Debugger would allow its scientists to improve "their productivity by reducing the time needed to develop and validate these applications."
TotalView Technologies claimed its debugger is suitable for demanding multi-core applications. It can scale from one to thousands of processes or threads with applications distributed over multiple machines or processors, and supports multiple platforms, compilers and programming languages, the company continued.
