System Analyzer Tutorial 8: Monitoring Activity on Keystone Architecture Devices

Tutorial8 Keystone.gif

An important use of System Analyzer is to monitor the performance of the various subsystems that are involved in moving data around a device. In Keystone Architecture devices, some of the key subsystems that are involved are:

  • EDMA3: the DMA engine
  • EMIF: the External Memory Interface
  • MSMC: the Multicore Shared Memory Controller

Tutorial topics: In Tutorial 8, we will work through some examples that cover the following topics:

  • Tutorial 8A: Using UIA to monitor EDMA3 transactions
  • Tutorial 8B: Periodically logging Performance Monitoring Counters
