Sun Feb 15 19:09:02 2009, original submission:

Many applications now consist of a number of interacting processes running the same or different programs. The most extreme example might be HPC applications using MPI on large clusters. But even desktop applications often use two or more processes communicating over a network socket.

It would be very cool and useful to have a decent framework for debugging these.

GDB is currently working on multi-process debugging. We should look at whether we can use this. Alternatively, we might start a separate GDB inferior for each process and manage the multi-process stuff in DDD.
