CMT Developer Tools

We've just released the CMT Developer Tools for Sun Studio 12. The tools are available for both SPARC and x64 systems, although not all tools are on the x64 platform. The list of tools is as follows:

  • ATS - Automatic Tuning and Troubleshooting System. Automatically finds the best compiler flags or locates optimisation bugs in an application without access to the source code. (SPARC and x64)
  • SPOT - Simple Performance Optimisation Tool. Generates an html report detailing where the application is spending time, and information about why it might be spending time there.(SPARC and x64)
  • BIT - Binary Improvement Tool. Reports information about application coverage also produces instruction execution counts, branch taken data etc. (SPARC only)
  • Discover - Sun Memory Error Discovery Tool. Detects memory access issues such in an application. Examples are accesses to uninitialised memory, accesses beyond array bounds, memory leaks, etc. (SPARC only)
