Name        : frysk
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 0.4
Release     : 0.fc9
URL         : http://sourceware.org/frysk
Summary     : Frysk execution analysis and debugging tools
Description :
Frysk is an execution-analysis technology implemented using native
Java and C++.  It is aimed at providing developers and sysadmins with
the ability to both examine and analyze running multi-host,
multi-process, multi-threaded systems.  Frysk allows the monitoring of
running processes and threads, of locking primitives and will also
expose deadlocks, gather data and debug any given process in the
system.

Update Information:

Release 0.4, 2008-06-09    -> Added support for watching values that are bigger
than the      maximum number of bytes a single watchpoint can watch. For
example,      types double or long long on IA32; an array of size 32 on X86_64.
In these cases, frysk allocates multiple debug registers to watch      over the
same expression.     -> Smaller memory foot-print when generating stack
backtraces.     Frysk has been changed to more aggressively release memory
allocated by the unwinder.       -> New capability to pass args via the "load"
command and when     fhpd is first started i.e., "$[/home/xxx] fhpd ls -la".
The      /bin/ls command is loaded and the parameter "-la" will be passed
when a "start" or "run" command is issued with no overriding     parameters.
Also, on subsequent runs, "-la" is always used unless     other parameters are
entered with the "run" or "start" command.     (This was bz #6515/6536).    ->
Support was added for fully-qualified symbol notation using the     standard HPD
"#" syntax (e.g. "#libc.so.6#malloc").  Ftrace now     uses this notation to
communicate with the user in both directions,     FHPD recognizes the syntax
although can't handle it yet.       -> Fix Hover-over variable does not show
variable value(bz #6484).    -> Created a new command line utility:  fdebugdump.
fdebugdump dumps     a hierarchical view of the debug info tags in an
executable. Future     improvements could include dumping the debug   info live
as libraries     are mapped in.    -> Bugs fixed
http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/:         5254: stepping engine, fhpd, and
breakpoints are not in sync     5557: testcase: watch 1 byte address     5558:
testcase watch address and range     5559: testcase failure testcase (watch an
address that has been umapped)     5560: Add frysk.proc.TaskObserver.Watch
interface     5561: Add frysk.proc.ProcObserver.Watch interface     5562: Write
Debug Status Register Builder     5563: Write Debug Register Set/Read Proxy.
5565: Task and Proc State need new watchpoint state transitions.     5566: Write
watchpoint manager     5567: Add ISA specific functions to set debug registers
via debug register           proxy     6390:
testFerrorTracesPID(frysk.bindir.TestFerror) fails.     6512: Add function to
provide the max length a debug register can watch     6515: fhpd command line
args incorrect     6531: Low level hardware watchpoint support should check, and
reject,            incorrectly aligned addresses     6532: Do not check
watchpoints in Running|Stepping.handleTrapped if software           /ISA does
not support watchpoints     6533: Watchpoint addition failure should not raise
an exception, but should           instead call .addFailed() callback     6535:
fexe not working for scripts     6551: Watch support for variables bigger than
max length of a single watch           register     6554: Separate watch
observer(s) installer from hpd     6555: Notify if available h/w watchpoints not
enough to watch complete value     6558: Handle watchpoint set error if
expression has no legal address     6559: Multiple watchpoint set messages are
displayed when multiple watch            observers used     6576: Need to load
process/params with HpdTestBed     6599: don't align the load-address     6600:
