The Mirror Object Steering System
The Mirror Object Steering System is an implementation of the Mirror
Object Model, a new approach to program monitoring and steering. Both the
Mirror Object Model and MOSS are described in the following publications:

MOSS is based on a CORBA-style object system. The IDL stub generator
is slightly extended to generate instrumentation in the generated _set
methods. A run-time system provides support for distributed object invocations.
MOSS' supported platforms include: Sun Sparc SunOS 4.1, Sun Sparc Solaris
2.x, x86 Solaris 2.x, SGI MPIS Irix 5.x, SGI MIPS (32 and 64-bit) Irix
6.x, IBM RS6000 AIX 3.2, x86 Linux, and x86 Windows NT. A source-code release
of MOSS is available as a compressed
