OS Debugging Method Using a Lightweight Virtual Machine Monitor

Tadashi Takeuchi

Demands for implementing original OSs that can achieve high I/O performance on PC/AT compatible hardware have recently been increasing, but conventional OS debugging environments have not been able to simultaneously assure their stability, be easily customized to new OSs and new I/O devices, and assure efficient execution of I/O operations. We therefore developed a novel OS debugging method using a lightweight virtual machine. We evaluated this debugging method experimentally and confirmed that it can transfer data about 5.4 times as fast as the conventional virtual machine monitor.
