Get up-to-speed with the latest Linux C++ debugging and performance tools

This training gives an introduction to various tools that help developers and testers find bugs and identify performance issues.

The tools presented cover a wide range of problems, from general purpose debugging and CPU profiling to Linux specific high-level analyzers. Often, it is relatively simple to run a tool, but interpreting the results, or even just using some of the more advanced tools, requires deep technical knowledge.

Introduction to Debugging & Profiling for Linux C++ development – Training Course Contents:

This training focuses on what a developer should know for being efficient on both desktop and embedded Linux.

The following tools will be covered: Debugging:

  • general purpose debuggers: GDB, RR
  • memory error detectors: valgrind’s memcheck, AddressSanitizers
  • thread error detectors: ThreadSanitizer
  • tracing: ldd, strace
  • OpenGL: apitrace

Profiling:

  • CPU: valgrind’s callgrind, Linux perf, Intel VTune Amplifier XE
  • heap memory: valgrind’s massif, heaptrack
  • OpenGL: apitrace
  • System-wide: LTTng

Testing:

  • static code analysis: clang analyzer, Coverity
  • code coverage: gcov

Why learn about Debugging and Profiling?

The time spent writing code is often dwarfed by the time required to find bugs and improve performance. This training makes your development workflow more efficient: You will learn what tool to use in which situation, how to set it up and run it on an application. And, finally, you will learn how to analyze and interpret the results obtained from the various tools.
