In this session we will look at low-level (Linux) system debugging tools to
find out what is going on (or wrong!) with your PHP environment, although the
techniques are also valid for other programs besides PHP. We will cover
debugging crashes with gdb, checking out memory leaks with valgrind, and many
other tools to find out what is going wrong, and hopefully, figure out why.
This session teaches tools to help out with tracking down bugs, and provides
information on how to get better at debugging connection issues, crashes, files
not being written, etc. The session is also valuable for people who want to
help out with providing good bug reports for Open Source projects.
