Title: Reducing DWARF debuginfo size.
Authors: Cary Coutant <>, Mark Wielaard <>
Abstract: Generating, linking, reading and storing DWARF debuginfo take
significant resources, time and space.  We want to discuss some efforts
that have recently been done to reduce some of that in the compiler,
linker, package manager and tools, like debuggers, that use the DWARF
debug information.  We are interested in discussing efforts that worked,
the various tradeoffs, efforts that didn't produce significant results
and ideas for future DWARF reduction work and/or standardization.

Cary Coutant has been working on the Debug Fission project, DWARF
Extensions for Separate Debug Information Files:

Mark Wielaard has been working on the elfutils project, which contains
the libdw DWARF consumer library that is used by tools like systemtap
and the dwarves tools:
