KGTP is a realtime and lightweight Linux Kernel debugger and tracer. It makes Linux Kernel supply a GDB remote debug interface. Then GDB in current machine or remote machine (see https://code.google.com/p/kgtp/wiki/HOWTO#Make_GDB_connect_to_gtp) can debug and trace Linux through GDB tracepoint without stopping the Linux Kernel. And even if the board doesn't have GDB on it and doesn't have interface for remote debug. It can debug the Linux Kernel using offline debug (See https://code.google.com/p/kgtp/wiki/HOWTO#Offline_debug). And it can work with Android (See https://code.google.com/p/kgtp/wiki/HowToUseKGTPinAndroid). Now, it supports X86-32, X86-64, MIPS and ARM. Now, KGTP 20120131 release.
