This paper makes two contributions to architectural support for software debugging. First, it proposes a novel statistics-based, on-the-fly bug detectionmethod called PC-based invariant detection. The idea is based on the observation that, in most programs, a given memory location is typically accessed by only a few instructions. Therefore, by capturing the invariant of the set of PCs that normally access a given variable, we can detect accesses by outlier instructions, which are often caused… CONTINUE READING
