Program understanding and debugging both require detailed information about the dynamic behavior of the underlying application. The call graph browser and the data structure display, our early efforts, provide this information using the debugger. This approach introduces considerable overhead but has the advantage of being totally non-intrusive: it requires no effort on the programmer’s part and it works on existing programs. In developing further dynamic visualization tools for FIELD, we wanted much better performance and non-intrusive monitoring.
