Measurement and Trends in Real World Software

We are pleased to invite Dr Clive King from Oracle to talk about Measurement and Trends in Real World Software in Cardigan on Wednesday 30th January. The talk will take place at Theatre Mwldan in the centre of Cardigan [Map]. It will start with tea and coffee from 6pm and the talk will start at 6.30pm.

This talk is based on an article to appear in the IEEE Software IMPACT column. The column has a number of articles drawn from diverse industries under the theme of measurement and trends in real world software.

In this talk we examine the issues associated with debugging programs of huge scale using the Solaris Kernel as a case study. By 2015 many systems vendors road maps show general purpose systems of a scale of 15,000 cores and 100TB of physical memory. What are the engineering challenges of debugging systems with postmortem images of 100′s of GB’s and getting larger each year ? The common themes which emerge can be applied equally to user level code which runs on systems of any scale and we relate our experiences to the other authors who have contributed articles to the IMPACT column.

The event is free and open to everyone.


Please book to attend this event using the form on the main BCS site.
