Better Software Quality Tracealyzer is not only a “fire extinguisher” to use on specific hard problems. You can also discover and avoid potential future problems, such as blocking system calls that are close to a timeout. Moreover, Tracealyzer gives you a better understanding of the current system run-time dynamics, so when designing new features, you can avoid unsuitable designs that could cause problems related to timing, CPU usage, scheduling or other task interactions.
Control system tuning
Control system developers can benefit from the support for plotting custom application data, what we call user events. Plots of e.g. control signals (sensor inputs and actuator outputs) can be correlated with the software timing in order to better understand anomalies in the control performance. Moreover, plots of task timing (e.g., periodicity) can be used to study software timing variations that affects control performance.
