Traditional debugging with a source-code debugger applies only at the small scale of individual programs, threads, or OS kernels. However, today’s complex embedded systems often utilize technologies such as parallel software, multicore, hypervisors, mixed endian system architectures, and distributed systems. In these environments, traditional debugging technologies often are not enough to track down problems associated with these advanced technologies. Fortunately, simulation not only scales in step with today’s system-wide software, but it also frees us from the constraints of physical hardware, to debug complex systems faster than ever before.

This webinar will cover:
  • How simulation is capable of controlling and debugging all software components of a system at once.
  • How to use simulation to debug time-sensitive interrupt-driven, parallel, heterogeneous,
    and distributed systems from a single window.
  • How operating systems and user-level code can be debugged in the same way, from the same
  • How using checkpoints, bugs can be captured, packaged and transported between groups providing perfect bug reproduction.

    We’ll also see a demo of system level debugging using simulation with Wind River Simics including:
  • Bug replication from a checkpoint
  • Scripting
  • Reverse execution
  • Application-level debug with OS awareness
  • Heterogeneous target
  • Big Endian-Little Endian mix
