The TRACE32 RTOS Debugger is an adaptive debugger, which allows debugging on target systems using real-time kernels. The debugger is fully integrated in the user interface. It allows the display of kernel resources, task selective debugging and many sophisticated real time analysis functions. The analysis functions include symbolic system call trace and detailed performance analysis functions.

The configuration to different RTOSes is controlled by a dynamically loaded extension. By changing this extension, the user may adapt the debugger to nearly any RTOS. Standard configurations are available for the most used kernels. The extension can also be used to define user specific windows for any kind of special data structures. The supported features vary between different kernels. Not all features are supported for all processors and kernels.
