Hardware Supported Flexible Monitoring: Early Results
Monitoring of software’s execution is crucial in numerous software development tasks. Current monitoring efforts generally require extensive instrumentation of the software or dedicated hardware test rig designed to provide visibility into the software. To fully understand software’s behavior, the production software must be studied in its production environment. To address this fundamental software engineering challenges, we propose a compiler and hardware supported framework for monitoring and observation of software-intensive systems. We place three fundamental requirements on our monitoring framework. The monitoring must be non-intrusive, low-overhead, and predictable so that the software is not unduly disturbed. The framework must also allow low-level monitoring and be highly flexible so we can accommodate a broad range of crucial monitoring activities. The general idea behind our work is that to make dramatic progress in non-intrusive, predictable, and fine-grained monitor...
