More testing tools for parallelization

Intel® offers a so called “Application Concurrency Audit Tool” for free. The Intel® Concurrency Checker 2.1 is available for Windows and LINUX and can be downloaded from their software network. I started to play around a little bit with the tool. It provides a decent overview on CPU utilization, elapsed time, parallel time, utilization regarding threads, and levels of concurrency. It allows to attach running application executables as well as to test java apps.
