LISA 2001 Abstract

Global Impact Analysis of Dynamic Library Dependencies

Yizhan Sun and Dr. Alva L. Couch - Tufts University


Sowhat is an administrative tool that performs global impact analysis of dynamic library dependencies for Solaris systems. Sowhat runs in two phases. It first builds a database of dependencies offline in the background, and then answers user queries and generates reports in real time based upon stored knowledge. Using sowhat, one can find problems with library bindings in large program repositories before these problems annoy potential users. ``I can stands what I can stands, but I can't stands no more!'' - Popeye
