The Modular Debugger (MDB) is a highly extensible, general purpose debugging tool for
the SolarisTM Operating System (Solaris OS). The Solaris Modular Debugger Guide describes how to use MDB to
debug complex software systems, with a particular emphasis on the facilities available for
debugging the Solaris kernel and associated device drivers and modules. It also includes
a complete reference for and discussion of the MDB language syntax, debugger features,
and MDB Module Programming API.
Note - This Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC®
and x86 families of
processor architectures: UltraSPARC®
, SPARC64, AMD64, Pentium, and Xeon EM64T. In this document the term
“x86” refers to 64-bit and 32-bit systems manufactured using processors compatible with the AMD64
or Intel Xeon/Pentium product families. For supported systems, see the Solaris OS Hardware Compatibility Lists at https://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/. This document
cites any implementation differences between the platform types.
