Projects / DIOTA


DIOTA is a just-in-time instrumentation tool for Intel binaries. It allows you to create a dynamic loadable library that can be attached to a program running under Linux. DIOTA can instrument all memory operations in the application and the used libraries (e.g., for checking for faulty memory accesses), calls of dynamically linked procedures (malloc, printf, etc.), detect the code executed during a particular run, and more.
