The meaning of «gdbserver»

gdbserver is a computer program that makes it possible to remotely debug other programs.[1] Running on the same system as the program to be debugged, it allows the GNU Debugger to connect from another system; that is, only the executable to be debugged needs to be resident on the target system ("target"), while the source code and a copy of the binary file to be debugged reside on the developer's local computer ("host"). The connection can be either TCP or a serial line.

Example for debugging a program called hello_world on a remote target using TCP ("2159" is the registered TCP port number for remote GDB):

remote@~$ gdbserver :2159 hello_world Process hello_world created; pid = 2509 Listening on port 2159 local@~$ gdb -q hello_world Reading symbols from /home/user/hello_world...done. (gdb) target remote Remote debugging using 0x002f3850 in ?? () from /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (gdb) continue Continuing. Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. 0x08048414 in main () at hello_world.c:10 10 printf("x[%d] = %g\n", i, x[i]); (gdb) Alternatives[edit]

Another technique for debugging programs remotely is to use a remote stub.[2][clarification needed] In this case, the program to be debugged is linked with a few special-purpose subroutines that implement the GDB remote serial protocol. The file containing these subroutines is called a "debugging stub".
