NATICK, Mass., Dec. 3 -- TotalView Technologies, the world's leading provider of scalable debugging and analysis software solutions for the multi-core era, today announced that OpenGeoSolutions, a geophysical services company that delivers spectral decomposition, spectral inversion and high-end signal analysis services, has chosen to use its TotalView Debugger to streamline the development of applications built on the company's OpenSeis processing toolkit.
Based in Calgary, AB, Canada, OpenGeoSolutions is quickly becoming known as the leading resource for high-end signal analysis applied to seismic resource determination. Its team of geoscientists relies on OpenGeoSolutions' code base and rapid deployment of new capabilities for the development of technical solutions designed for customers working in the fields of petroleum exploration and production.
"Since OpenGeoSolutions began using TotalView, our development time has been reduced by months," said Paul Garossino, geoscientist at OpenGeoSolutions. "Without TotalView's capabilities, our programmers would be taken back to the days of print statements and generating reams of paper output in order to understand, locate and repair broken code. The time spent on this style of error assessment can be astronomical."
TotalView is the most advanced multi-core debugger for Linux, UNIX, and Mac OS X and is the market leader in C/C++, FORTRAN, UPC, MPI/Open MP and parallel programming debugging. It was designed from the ground up to handle the complexities of the world's most demanding multi-processing applications that scale to thousands of processes and threads with applications distributed over multiple machines or processors. TotalView offers many advanced features, including multi-language support and built-in source code and memory debugging capabilities, which streamline and simplify the development process. TotalView has made it possible for OpenGeoSolutions developers to significantly speed their development times, as well as to improve the quality of their software products.
"Software development can often be a challenging enough process, and a programmer's time should be spent understanding the code -- not the debugger," said Dick Andersen, vice president of marketing at TotalView Technologies. "Many of our customers, including OpenGeoSolutions, have found TotalView's advanced productivity features and ease-of-use to be a tremendous benefit."
