SKY Computers Inc. has introduced the TimeTrac dynamic software tool for Linux multiprocessing systems. This event recording and analysis tool fine-tunes and debugs real-time multiprocessor and multicore applications.

This software tool can be used on systems varying from a few to hundreds of processors. In addition to debugging, it is used to measure and optimize application software throughout the development cycle from initial algorithm development through modifications to system deployment.

It can be used on Linux systems to:

  • Optimize codes by determining where the application is spending its time;
  • Identify speed improvement opportunities in algorithms;
  • Isolate infrequently occurring problems;
  • Synchronize communications and semaphores; and
  • Determine what processors are overloaded or underutilized.
