This three-year project started in 2009 is jointly funded by Ericsson, Defence Research and Development Canada et the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. Lead by École Polytechnique's DORSAL, it is being done is collaboration with the University of Ottawa, Concordia University, and the Laval University.
The aim of this project is to develop techniques and algorithms to provide a suitable software achitecture for low overhead tracing and monitoring tools for these complex distributed multi-core systems. The tools will enable operators to trace the complete software stack, from hypervisor to operating system, virtual execution engine and user applications. Sophisticated trace analysis tools will detect patterns of faulty behavior, and associate the trace events to a model of the computer system or service in order to explain how the total execution time is spent.
