Welcome

I currently work in Solaris Kernel Development at Sun Microsystems. My projects over the last 1 1/2 years include:
  • Solaris port to AMD64 platforms, for which we won the 2005 Chairman's Award.
  • Improved write performance by 80-120% on AMD64 as measured by libMicro.
  • Got -save_args option implemented by Sun Studio compilers for AMD64 so that function arguments passed via register are available to the debugger (more on this later).
  • Improved debugability on AMD64 in general.
Prior to this new adventure in x86 land, I spent 6 1/2 years working in Sun's Enterprise Server Group, mostly on the SunFire 4800-6800 product line (Code name Serengeti). I designed and implemented
  • POST (Power On Self Test)
  • Parts of the System Controller software (test sequencer, domain console and domain communication channel)
  • The Solaris driver for communicating with the system controller
  • The Solaris drivers for DR (Dynamic Reconfiguration).
Prior to Sun I worked at Intel, and still have fond memories of the Pentium II launch party held at OMSI.

In addition to my day job, I also play mommy for two wonderful young children. When at times I exclaimed, "I found the bug!", my son would respond with the same enthusiasm, "Did you kill it?".
