Feature Overview and Demonstration of GNU GDB in Intel® System Studio

The GNU Debugger Project delivers the common GDB application debugger enabled for Intel Architecture (IA). Intel System Studio ships an Intel-enhanced GDB with features that may be not yet present in the current GDB version or it contains features that are not yet accepted for the mainline of the GNU Debugger Project.

In this webinar we give an overview of three of those features that are new, experimental, or even correspond to hardware features as found in IA. This webinar is a quick start for debugging invalid memory accesses (pointer checker), detecting data races, and getting back traces out of the Intel Atom Branch Trace Store (BTS).
