Software complexity in CE products increased a lot while time to market becomes shorter.   This resulted in more software crashes happening during QA testing and when the product is in the market.The presentation will explain how in TPVision products (Philips TV's) we have addressed this by developing diagnostic tools to enable fast and easy analysis of software crashes. Elements which will be presented:

  • software crash detection (segmentation fault, stack overflow, out of memory, ...)
  • dump/backtrace generation
  • kernel and userspace tracing
  • trace visualisation
  • remote diagnostics

The presentation will contain both standard linux infrastructure which is used and where we have extended this with proprietary solutions.
