Debug Builds

A debugger can set breakpoints in a plugin. Use a Traffic Server debug build and compile the plugin with the -g option. A debugger can also be used to analyze a core dump. To generate core, set the size limit of the core files in the records.config file to -1 as follows:

CONFIG :ts:cv:`proxy.config.core_limit` INT -1

This is the equivalent of setting ulimit -c unlimited

Debugging Tips:

  • Use a Traffic Server debug version.

  • Use assertions in your plugin (TSAssert() and TSReleaseAssert()).
