Gscope: A Visualization Tool for Time-Sensitive Software
Ashvin Goel, Jonathan Walpole, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Oregon Graduate Institute, Portland
This paper describes gscope, a visualization tool for time-sensitive
applications. Gscope provides an oscilloscope-like interface that
can be integrated with applications. It focuses on software visualization
and is thus designed to handle various types of signal waveforms,
periodic or event-driven, in single or multi-threaded environments
as well as local or distributed applications. Gscope helps in visually
verifying system correctness and modifying system parameters and thus
can complement standard debugging techniques and be used to build
compelling software demos. Initial experiments with using gscope show
that the library has low overhead.
