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.
