Symtavision TraceAnalyzer v1.2 for Visualizing, Analyzing System Timing

Symtavision rolled out version 1.2 of their TraceAnalyzer tool for visualizing and analyzing system timing in terms of the constituent ECUs, controllers, processors, buses and networks. TraceAnalyzer v1.2 offers a 10x speed improvement over the previous version. It also reduces memory requirements by a factor of ten. The tools shows controller and bus schedules with events, blocking and pre-emptions and details the timing chains. Engineers can see the flow of signals and data through the system including data loss and multiple reads of the same data.

Symtavision TraceAnalyzer Features

  • Trace data import through standard and customizable import formats
  • Optional configuration files provide structural information including runnable-to-task mapping
  • Visualization of raw data and as Gantt charts
  • Visualization of data-flow between tasks and runnables, including data-loss and multiple reads of same data Tree browser for hierarchy of trace elements
  • Trace interpretation inclusive error detection and correction (e.g. missing start before stop)
  • Automatic preemption insertion in case OS states cannot be traced directly
  • Overview of load / utilization per task, runnable, average and change over time
  • Supports user-configurable markers
  • Measure task execution and response times
  • Measure communication latencies
  • Calculate activation distances and length of bursts
  • Determine interrupt patterns
  • Plot load and timing properties over time
