Etnus, the leading supplier of debuggers for complex code, today announced record-breaking sales of its TotalView debugger on Intel Linux platforms, linking the sales to increased development of complex and mission critical codes on Linux systems. Both sales volume and number of licenses sold for the Etnus TotalView debugger on Intel Linux platforms doubled over first quarter 2001 and, for the first time, Etnus reported that Linux was the top-selling platform.
Etnus attributes the rapid growth of TotalView on Linux to two factors, according to Mary Kay Bunde, Director of Market Development for Etnus. ?First, software engineers are writing more complex and mission critical code on Linux systems. As complexity increases engineers turn to TotalView to better understand their applications, and to help coax the bugs out of their code."
Second, says Bunde "TotalView satisfies a need for advanced development tools within the Linux community. Past studies, such as the semi-annually published ?Linux Developers Survey? by Evans Data Corporation, indicate general dissatisfaction with Linux development tool choices. Recent increases in advertising, articles, and word of mouth buzz about TotalView have raised awareness that there is a superior debugger available on Linux. Now the Linux community is discovering that Etnus TotalView provides the robust performance and features they require.?
Etnus believes Linux will continue to be a leader among the many platforms they support and will continue to expand functionality there. The next release of TotalView will add support for GCC 3.X and the Intel compilers for Linux.
Etnus TotalView is a cross-platform, state of the art debugger supporting C/C++ and Fortran. TotalView's rich feature set enables software engineers to find problems in mission critical codes that eluded them with run of the mill debuggers. Available on all major UNIX systems and Linux, TotalView supports today's complex programming models, including threads, MPI, and OpenMP.
Etnus is the world's leading provider of debugging and analysis solutions for complex code. The Etnus TotalView debugger provides software engineers with the ability to visualize, control and correct applications running on a wide variety of platforms and using one to thousands of processors. Etnus products offer significant productivity gains in application development, helping to eliminate the frustration, delays and headaches inherent in analyzing multi-process, multi-thread, and network-distributed applications containing many lines of code or advanced programming techniques such as MPI, threads, and OpenMP.
Etnus products are used in the development of applications in industries such as weather prediction, film special effects and animation, oil and gas exploration, CAD/CAM software development, automotive, aerospace, finance and telecommunications. Privately held, Etnus offers its expanding product line through worldwide resellers and direct sales.
