The Kernel Group Inc’s Austin, Texas-based SevOne Software Inc subsidiary is offering a debugging tool for AIX called SCTrace, claiming that it can save large amounts of software development and maintenance time. The utility reports all system calls – including individual user and library function calls – made by an AIX process, their arguments and return values, including error numbers. It reports signals received by processes, can be attached to running processes, and doesn’t require superuser access. SCTrace runs under AIX version 3 and above on the RS/6000 and is priced from $200. The Kernel Group is a five-year-old, 35-person AIX and IBM Corp microkernel consulting firm that claims to perform much of the AIX defect work for IBM on the Austin defect resolution team, which is known internally as The Change Team. It offers a bunch of AIX development and system administration tools, as well as writing and implementing software for AIX users. It handled Tivoli Systems Inc’s migration to AIX and worked on the Prudential Corp and Deutsche Bank AG AIX wins. It looks to do $6m of business this year.
