Complier Tools For CMT

Now this was a great presentation, somethings I knew somethings I did not. Specifically the ability of the new compilers to include the intermediate code in the object files allowing you to recompile and hence change the compiler flags used to build a binary, without the source.

That combined with the spot tool for analyzing the running application and advise on what complier flags to use to optimize the binary. This will allow users and ISVs to have their applications learn the best optimization to use based on the previous runs of that application in the environment where they actually run. This offers the potential for the same application to be tuned differently on different systems, even different customers based on the previous runs off the applications.

Good Morning Build 73

The Lab engineer who used to upgrade our Sun Rays moved onto pastures new and so there has been a slight glitch in the upgrades for a few weeks. Thankfully the pastures new are actually within Sun and in the same lab team but in a different country, well continent actually, however that allows him to continue doing the upgrades and now he is back on line I can say:

Good morning build 73:

: estale.eu FSS 1 $; uname -a
SunOS estale 5.11 snv_73 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire
: estale.eu FSS 2 $; 

One thing I noticed on my home system was that I did not seem to be getting the latest developer tools installed and the same appears to be true here. Live upgrade is correctly upgrading Solaris but not upgrading the developer tools.


On my home system I ran:


/tank/fs/downloads/nv/73/os/DeveloperTools/install_devtools.sh

Now I have all the tools installed. Need to get the same done in in my “finish” script before the Boot Environment is live.
