How to get SSM
1) Oracle’s Software enhanced with ADI, e. g. Oracle DB uses ADI on SGA
2) Solaris malloc() enhanced with ADI (libadimalloc, libumem based)
• LD_PRELOAD-able with no application changes
• Few assumptions on pointer usage
3) Discover LD_PRELOAD-able ADI library (with options)
% LD_PRELOAD=\lib/compilers/sparcv9/libdiscoverADI.so \
ADP_PRECISE_MODE=1 \
# ADI Precise Mode
ADP_REPORT_STACK_TRACES=1 \
# Add infos about where the mem. was allocated and freed
a.out
4) Studio Discover tool with ADI Find and fix bugs during development
• Available today on the SWiSDev cloud, http://swisdev.oracle.com
5) Solaris ADI API
• Add ADI to applications
• Available on 11.3 Build 6+ and 11.2 SRU 6
