Agenda

  • Build
    • Doug revealing secrets of Scanner Discovery
    • Current architecture of build/project configuration
    • Common problems with custom integration
    • Fixing the scalability issues.
    • Tool/toolchain versioning
    • Future of cdt build
  • Debug - General
    • Launch
      • C/C++ Application or C/C++ Local Application
  • Debug - DSF-GDB
    • architecture
    • how gdb integration fits in there
    • demo for tracepoints and reverse debugging
    • maybe somebody can talk about how they gdb based custom integration
    • maybe discuss commonly asked questions and problems
    • timeouts
  • Debug - EDC (Eclipse Debugger for C/C++)
    • Overview
    • Architecture
      • Tour of Services
      • Use of TCF

    • Eclipse integration for agent
  • Debug - Multi-core brainstorm
    • Wanted features. A wiki can be found here and can be used to add ideas.
    • Multi-context wiki page focused on improving the workflow of simultaneous debugging of multiple cores, processes, threads.
    • Different Debug View layouts
      • Grouped by processes ((process(cores)->thread(core)->frame). This is the current layout
      • Grouped by cores at the top-level (core->process->thread->frame)
      • Grouped by cores at the top-level using labels (core->thread(process)->frame)
      • Grouped by cores below processes (process->core->thread->frame)
    • New views
      • Graphical core view - Diagram showing all cores and info about what is running on them, as well as actions that can be performed on the cores
      • Processes view - Optionally grouped by cores, this view would show processes available for debugging
    • Multi-core debug for specific multi-core programing model
    • Operations for multi-core debugging
      • Resuming an entire core
      • Suspending an entire core
      • Stepping an entire core (instruction stepping, source-stepping)
      • Re-allocation of threads from one core to one or more others
      • Locking of a core (move all threads out and 'disable' the core)
      • ...
    • Usecases - What are the users trying to accomplish?
    • Way forward
      • Working group
      • Regular meetings
  • Profiling
    • Framework for gprof, Oprofile, perf, etc.
