8.1.1. Features supported when debugging with GDB

RealView ICE supports connections from remote GDB sessions over TCP/IP. These GDB connections support all non-OS specific functionality, including:

Debugging modes

You can use the following debugging modes with GDB:

  • Halt-mode debugging, where the target stops while you examine it.

  • Monitor-mode debugging, where the target continually runs under control of monitor software on the target. GDB communicates with the monitor using Virtual Ethernet/TTY connections through the Debug Communications Channel (DCC). See DCC modes.

See Methods of connecting from remote GDB sessions for details of the connection methods you can use with these modes.
