When your program loads new processes, TotalView pops up question boxes asking if it should stop execution so that you can set breakpoints within the process. You could, of course, do other things.

TotalView asks these questions when your program uses a dynamically loaded library or when it starts other processes. Here's an example of one kind of question box:

Depending upon the number of times this happens, this can be extremely annoying.

You can stop these questions from appearing by selecting the File > Preferences command and making changes in one or both of the following pages: Clear the Ask to stop when loading dynamic libraries on the Dynamic Libraries page. Select the Run the group within the When the job goes parallel or calls exec() area on the Parallel page.
