Global Breakpoints

A global breakpoint is a breakpoint that applies to multiple processes, including processes that are not actively being debugged, or have not yet been created. When a global breakpoint is hit, the debugger will attach automatically to the process that hit the breakpoint. Global breakpoints can be set within:

  1. a set of existing processes
  2. all processes already running
  3. all processes created after this point
  4. a combination of the above

When a global breakpoint is hit, synchronized run control operations could automatically be performed, e.g., to stop the entire core.
