Why do I bring this up? I’m excited to share with you that the new 2013.05 release of Sourcery CodeBench now includes the most significant parts of Sourcery Analyzer! Any customer who has or will purchase Sourcery CodeBench Professional can take advantage of these key features of Sourcery Analyzer:
15 different agents that automate data collection, analysis, and visualization of kernel and application software on Linux platforms
Automatic data collection from Linux applications and the Linux kernel using the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTTng) instrumentation framework.
Import event information from any type of system via text files
Correlate events to source code

The add-on unlocks additional capabilities which can help power users to quantify their observations, combine measurements to test hypothesis, and create new analysis agent plugins that can automate repetitive analysis. Here’s a short video about two of these premium features:
