3. Business Case
Valgrind has proven to be a valuable tool debugging user-space memory management problem on x86 and
PPC platforms. Several customers have requested to have this tool on System z as well. Besides the
capabilities to debug memory problems other plugins (cachegrind) enable us to analyze the cache
access patterns of applications which turned out to be a key issue in order to get the best
performance on z10 machines.

What possible thing could be required from anaconda to support valgrind?

------- Comment From mgrf@de.ibm.com 2010-12-17 03:13 EDT-------
The installer part of the Valgrind feature requests to add Valgrind to the list of  packages in installer to have Valgrind available as installable option..
Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2010-12-17 10:22:30 EST
That is controlled by comps.
Comment 5 Daniel Mach 2010-12-17 13:39:16 EST
Valgrind is not available on s390x because it's not built for 390x.
Reassigning to valgrind component.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2010-12-17 14:57:16 EST
That is already covered in bug 651163. Once that is done, there are no other changes needed.
