2010-06-02 - Introduction to GDB for System Administrators and Programmers, Nikolai Fetissov
18:45, Suspenders Bar and Restaurant
Abstract

System administrators often have to diagnose and report software anomalies back to developers while programmers often find themselves asking system administrators for specific information about production issues. GDB, while being a debugger and thus mainly a programmer`s tool, allows for gathering enough information from either running or crashed process, so support and development groups can communicate more effectively. We will touch upon relevant usage of GDB and associated tools.
