Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta is available for download

Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 Beta is available for download!

Oracle Solaris Studio is a suite of compilers and code analysis tools that assist developers in creating highly optimized, robust, and secure applications for the Oracle Solaris and Linux Operating Systems.


The Beta release includes:
  • New C++ compiler and  debugger that support the C++ 2011 language standard
  • A completely redesigned Performance Analyzer UI that simplifies identification of key performance issues, plus remote data analysis, cross-architecture support, comparison of results, and improved kernel profiling
  • Code Analyzer for improving your application with static source-code checking, run-time memory access checking (including memory leaks), and identification of UN-exercised code. Graphical and command-line interfaces provide robust interfaces for reviewing results and historical analysis of data
  • Compiler and library optimizations for Oracle's SPARC T5, M5, M6, Fujitsu's M10, and Intel's Ivy Bridge and Haswell servers
  • Support for new OpenMP 4.0 standard including Region Cancellation, Thread Affinity, Tasking Extensions and Sequentially Consistent Atomics
  • Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that includes C++ 2011 support, improved response time, and a smaller memory footprint to efficiently handle very large source repositories.

  • Start learning about these new features by reviewing the What's New document and check the Release Notes for the installation instructions, known issues and limitations of this Beta.

    Process(or) Forensics

    Optimizing application performance is a multi-facet undertaking. Among all the tools and methods available to us, getting a glimpse at performance metrics from the processor point of view allows us to highlight yet another facet of the application. Most modern microprocessors include so-called performance counters that provide event based drill-down of the processor utilisation and efficiency...[Read More]
