SKY Computers Inc., a leading supplier of embedded high performance computer systems, today announced TimeTrac(TM), performance optimizing software for Linux multi-processing systems.

TimeTrac, developed and used internally at SKY, is a dynamic software tool that assists software developers fine tune and debug real time multiprocessor and multi-core processor applications. Flexibly designed, it 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.

"By making TimeTrac available for the Linux environment, we are able to provide a complete solution for software developers," said David Bushee, director of OEM sales and services, SKY Computers. "With its easy-to-use viewer and minimal intrusion into the application code, TimeTrac is a superior tool for evaluating multi- threaded applications running on high performance, multi-core and processor systems."

Using TimeTrac, a software developer can quickly uncover the complex program issues that prevent project schedules from being met. TimeTrac allows the developer to instrument the application to easily collect performance data and displays the collected data for analysis. Using this data, the developer can view computation times and how they are clustered. By analyzing event relationships and eliminating race conditions, correct program operation can be verified. Also, problems that occur infrequently can be isolated in a fraction of the time that would normally be required to detect these hard-to-diagnose problems.

TimeTrac can be used on Linux systems to:

-- Optimize code by determining where the application is spending its time

-- Identify speed improvement opportunities in algorithms

-- Isolate infrequently occurring problems

-- Synchronize communications and semaphores

-- Determines which processors are overloaded or underutilized

TimeTrac is available now and for immediate download via PayPal payment. Pricing is $1,995.00 per seat. Additional information can be found by visiting: http://www.skytimetrac.com/
