The most commonly used options are:

  -a <args>
     Pass all subsequent arguments (specified by <args>) to your
     program. This option must be the last one on the command line.

  -dbfork
    (Default) Catches the fork(), vfork(), and execve() system calls
    if your executable is linked with the dbfork library.

  -e <commands>
    Tells TotalView to immediately execute the CLI commands named
    within this argument. All information you enter here is sent
    directly to the CLI's Tcl interpreter. For example, the
    following writes a string to stdout:

      cli -e 'puts hello'

    You can have more than one -e option on a command line.

  -patch_area_base address
    Allocates the patch space dynamically at the given address. See
    "Allocating Patch Space for Compiled Expressions " in Chapter 14
    of the TotalView Users Guide.

  -patch_area_length length
    Sets the length of the dynamically allocated patch space to the
    specified length. See "Allocating Patch Space for Compiled
    Expressions" in the TotalView Users Guide.

  -pid <pid>
    Tells TotalView to attach to process <pid> after it starts executing.

  -remote <hostname[:portnumber]>
    Debugs an executable that is not running on the same machine as
    TotalView. For more information on the autolaunch feature, see
    "Setting Single Process Server Launch" in the TotalView Users
    Guide.

  -r <hostname[:portnumber]>
    Same as -remote.

  -s <pathname>
    Specifies the path name of a startup file that will be loaded
    and executed.
