TAU (Tuning and Analysis Utilities) is a set of tools for analyzing the performance of C, C++, Fortran and Java programs. It collects much more information than is available through prof or gprof, the standard Unix utilities, including per-process, per-thread, and per-host information, inclusive and exclusive function times, profiling groups that allow you to organize data collection, access to hardware counters on some systems, per-class and per-instance information, the ability to separate data for each template instantiation, start/stop timers for profiling arbitrary sections of code, and support for collection of statistics on user-defined events.
PCL is a software library to access hardware performance counters on many microprocessors through a uniform interface and with low overhead. Language bindings exist for C, C++, Fortran, and Java. It is intended to be used by the expert application programmer who wishes to do detailed analysis on program performance, and it is intended to be used by tool writers which need a common platform to base their work on.
glibc-audit is a modified version of glibc for application developers who check their code with an automatic memory access checker such as Purify, Insure++, or valgrind. glibc-audit has been audited and cleaned up so that reports from the developer's use of a memory access checker are more likely to be interesting to the developer, with less "noise" from the C library itself. Also, the r_debug.r_brk protocol has been enhanced to co-operate with a co-resident auditor.
FindBugs looks for bugs in Java programs. It can detect a variety of common coding mistakes, including thread synchronization problems, misuse of API methods, etc. It is written in the GJ dialect of Java, and will run on any Java VM compatible with Sun's JDK 1.4.0 or later. It includes both GUI (Swing) and commandline frontends.
ProKylix is a source code profiler for Borland's Kylix 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0. In the Freeware mode, ProKylix can measure the runtime of up to 30 procedures. ProKylix can be upgraded to use the Professional mode by registration. After registration, ProKylix measures up to 32000 procedures, and can also profile pure assembler functions and procedures. The upgrades are valid for all future Kylix versions.
EBsuite.com is a Web-based e-business software suite for small to mid-sized businesses and developers. Its project management module contains integrated bug tracking, file checkin/checkout, patch management, project/task scheduling, a Gantt chart, a calendar/task application, and much more.
OpenLoad is an easy-to-use browser-based, rapid performance optimization solution for load and stress testing of dynamic Web sites. It uses IBM WebSphere and the DB2 Universal Database, and is fully integrated with IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer. It substantially minimizes the time and skill set required to optimize the performance of Web-based applications by simplifying the process of building real-world user scenarios, verifying expected functional behavior, and pinpointing performance bottlenecks within Web applications and IT infrastructure.
WyCode is a code analyzer that parses PHP code to extract all the queries from scripts (logically grouped in product(s) and modules) and identifies, for each module and script, the required DB privileges. It lists the tables from a database in either a simple way or with the association to scripts and privileges. As all the strings are extracted first to identify the SQL queries, WyCode may also be used to help the localization process of products. Include statements are evaluated for dependencies management. WySQL is required for dbms connection and querying.
ReadySET is a project to produce and maintain a library of reusable software engineering document templates. These templates provide a ready starting point for the documents used in software development projects. Using good templates can help developers work more quickly, and they help prompt discussion and avoid oversights. Key features include: high-quality outlines, sample text, and checklists, use of simple Web technologies (pure XHTML and CSS), and templates for many common software engineering documents.
