We have SLES 12SP3 LTSS, and as part of the maintenance of some applications built for this platform we need to use strace -p or gdb to attach to running processes owned by us. When we used those applications to attach to a running process, the system sends a PTRACE error and the application is stopped. Under Ubuntu there is a kernel parameter to prevent this issue from happening, but in SLES I couldn’t find such parameter. If run as root that problem disappears, but we regard it’s a big risk to do software development as root. Is there a way to prevent this kernel restriction from happening?
