Totalview® for HPC Reference Guide : PART III Platforms and Operating Systems : Chapter 9 Platforms and Compilers : Linking with the dbfork Library
Linking with the dbfork Library
If your program uses the fork() and execve() system calls, and you want to debug the child processes, you need to link programs with the dbfork library.
NOTE >> While you must link programs that use fork() and execve() with the TotalView dbfork library so that TotalView can automatically attach to them when your program creates them, programs that you attach to need not be linked with this library.
