Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] [OMPI users] where can i get a tracing tool

Hi Eugene,

the FAQ page looks very nice.
I just sent the following answer to Lin Zou:

for a quick view of what is inside the trace you could try 'otfprofile'
to generate a tex/ps file with some information. This tool is a
component of the latest stand-alone version of the Open Trace Format
(OTF) - see

However, if you need more detailed information about the trace you would
need to get a evaluation version of Vampir - see
In addition to the evaluation version of Vampir a free version with some
functional limitations will be available in the near future.

Could you also mention the tool 'otfprofile' under the section 7,
please? As soon as the free version of Vampir is available this could
also be mentioned.
