Allow developers to launch SystemTap scripts on their C/C++ projects directly from Eclipse. Provides a launch wizard for easy launches, as well as a few prebuilt scripts. The included graphical viewing program generates a program graph displaying time information for function calls. Also comes with the ability to annotate functions, allowing the user to mark graph nodes and displaying user-specified, function-specific information on the graph.
Benefit to Fedora
Makes it easier for developers to use SystemTap, and provides a neat way to graphically profile C/C++ projects developed through Eclipse.
Adds a small plugin family to Eclipse
- Run upstream unit tests
- Users of Eclipse's CDT tools will be able to select Profile As and select one of several prebuilt SystemTap scripts, or launch a custom script through the script launch Wizard.
- Sample videos will be posted soon.
- SystemTap translator/driver (version 0.9.8/0.141+)
- Eclipse 3.4.1 or greater
- org.eclipse.linuxtools.profiling.launch [Eclipse Profiling Framework]
- org.eclipse.zest [Zest : The Eclipse Visualization Toolkit]
- Continue without such capability.
Users will need to be part of the stapdev group on their machine in order to fully take advantage of SystemTap's offerings.
