System Debug

To help quickly resolve complex system issues, this feature supports in-depth debugging of system software and IoT applications that are based on Intel® architecture. The full-featured, source-line debugger enables deep analysis of:

  • BIOS and UEFI* code
  • System-on-chip (SoC) peripheral registers
  • Operating system kernels
  • Device drivers with full operating system awareness

System Trace

This feature traces events on Intel® architecture from various hardware, firmware, and other software sources. You can collect, export, and analyze trace data collected by Intel® Trace Hub from sources like:

  • BIOS
  • Intel® Management Engine (Intel® ME)
  • Intel® Converged Security and Management Engine (Intel® CSME)
  • Architecture Event Trace (AET)
  • Microsoft Event Tracing for Windows* (ETW)

Events can be extracted via several mechanisms, including JTAG, system memory, or through a USB connection. Analyzing Intel Trace Hub events from multiple platform sources helps you determine root causes of bugs quickly.

GNU Project Debugger* (GDB) for Applications: Linux* Targets Only

GDB allows a developer to see what is going on inside an application while it executes or what it was doing at the moment it crashed. This application-level debugger allows a developer to debug C and C++ application code running on Linux* systems.
