Description

The Mercury project (http://trac.mcs.anl.gov/projects/mercury) may provide a portable scheme for communication with running applications that we can leverage. It provides a basic functionality for RPC that is very similar to CCS. If we can build CCS on Mercury, then we can use CCS anywhere that Mercury works, which should be everywhere that we care about. This would then allow CharmDebug to be more generally useful on varoius target architectures.

If Mercury can't be used to support CharmDebug, then we should examine the scheme being used by gdb on BG/Q and determine how difficult it would be to use as the substrate for CCS.

History

#1 Updated by Sam White almost 2 years ago

  • Target version set to 6.9.0
  • Priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Assignee changed from Bilge Acun to PPL
  • Category set to Machine Layers

BG/Q is dying, so lowering priority and assigning away from Bilge.

#2 Updated by Phil Miller almost 2 years ago

  • Target version deleted (6.9.0)
  • Status changed from New to Rejected

This is probably just not going to happen, so closing it out.
