AMD gDEBugger has been succeeded by AMD’s CodeXL. With the exception of critical bug fixes, there will be no new versions of gDEBugger. For new features, continuous support and a unified developer tools suite, please visit AMD’s CodeXL web page and check out the CodeXL Forum.
AMD gDEBugger is an OpenCL™ and OpenGL debugger and memory analyzer that is available as Microsoft® Visual Studio® plugin on Windows® and a standalone version on Linux®. gDEBugger provides the ability to debug OpenCL™ & OpenGL API calls and OpenCL™ kernels and step through the source code to find bugs, optimize performance and reduce memory consumption.
gDEBugger offers real-time OpenCL™ kernel debugging, which allows developers to step into the kernel execution directly from the API calls, debug inside the kernel, view all variable values across different work groups and work items – and all this on a single computer with a single GPU. In addition, gDEBugger takes the mystery out of debugging OpenCL™ and OpenGL, allowing developers to peer into compute and graphic memory objects, monitor their contents, and detect memory leaks and scenarios that caused it. Users can view and save the API call logs, find out the deprecated functions and see the recommended alternative function calls.
