Visualizing JIT Compiler Graphs

Heui Chan Lim, Stephen Kobourov

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Just-in-time (JIT) compilers are used by many modern programming systems in order to improve performance. Bugs in JIT compilers provide exploitable security vulnerabilities and debugging them is difficult as they are large, complex, and dynamic. Current debugging and visualization tools deal with static code and are not suitable in this domain. We describe a new approach for simplifying the large and complex intermediate representation, generated by a JIT compiler and visualize it with a metro map metaphor to aid developers in debugging.
