Starting the System Trace
If you have an existing workspace containing an old System Trace project, this project is probably not compatible with the newly-installed System Trace anymore.
Whenever you install a newer version of Intel® System Studio including the System Trace, create a new Intel® System Studio IDE workspace or at least a new System Trace project.
- Launch the Intel® System Studio IDE by running <install-dir>\iss_ide_eclipse-launcher.bat, where <install-dir> is the root directory of your Intel® System Studio installation. By default, <install-dir> is:
- For Linux* OS target: C:\IntelSWTools\system_studio_2018\
- For Windows* OS target: C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\
- To open the System Trace plugin, go to Window > Open Perspective > Other.
- Choose System Trace as the perspective. The System Trace default window is displayed. The first time you launch, the System Trace will show a welcome dialog, which guides you through the first steps.
Options available in the Welcome to System Trace dialog box:
Help me setup a new project
|This option will guide you trough the process of creating a trace project.|
Import a project
|This option will open the Intel® System Studio IDE import dialog to import existing trace projects.|
Importing an Existing Trace Capture Archive/Trace Capture File (Bin-file)
To import an existing trace capture archive file, such as one of the examples which can be found in <install-dir>\system_debugger_<version>\system_trace\examples\input, you need to import that file into your trace viewer.
To import a sample System Validation Events (SVEN) trace included in a Trace Capture Archive or in a plain bin-file:
- Open the Intel® System Studio IDE.
- Switch to the Trace perspective.
- Go to File > Import ....
- Browse to System Trace > Trace Capture.
- Click Next.
- Select the Trace Capture Archive by clicking Browse….
Locate sven_stp_data.tracecptentry in the directory <install-dir>\System Debugger <version>\system_trace\examples\input.
If you want to import a bin file, select the *.* file filter on the bottom right corner of the file browse dialog.
- Select the trace project you want to import the data from. If you do not have a project, type in a name for your new project and select Create trace project.
- Click Finish to import the trace capture archive.
- In the Project Explorer expand the capture node. You should see a sven_stp_data.tracecpt entry.
- Right-click the sven_stp_data.tracecpt entry and select Decode.
The sample trace is displayed in the trace viewer.
