Advanced ptrace() usage on FreeBSD

Date: 2023-05-19
Time: 13:15–14:00
Room: DMS 1110
Level: Advanced

Over the past year I have worked on several changes to the FreeBSD native target in the GDB debugger to support debugging of multiple concurrent processes. This talk will cover how this is implemented using ptrace(). It will also discuss potential changes to ptrace() to reduce the number of system calls required for common cases as well as potential changes needed in the future to support non-stop debugging.


The following slides have been made available for this session:
