We have talked about it for six months, and worked on it for much longer than that, but today it is finally here – Tracealyzer 4! Starting today, you can download the new version of Percepio’s powerful visualization tool and try it out for yourself.
If you use Tracealyzer today, the first thing you will notice with Tracealyzer 4 is its completely redesigned user interface. Or maybe the speed; it loads large traces much faster than the previous version. But don’t stop there, there are a lot of new possibilities to discover beneath that interface.
Some of the key new features are
- Unlimited tracing
Monitor your application over long test runs, spanning hours, days or even weeks, and see analysis results, such as task execution times, immediately. Find interesting spots in the new trace preview and drill down into the details using the full power of Tracealyzer.
- Advanced live visualization
View the trace live while recording. Pause individual views to zoom in and inspect details while recording continues in the background. This way you can spot issues in the trace directly as they occur.
- Network and I/O awareness
Tracealyzer 4 provides better support for tracing Internet-of-Things devices and other connected applications with new awareness of network and I/O events. This allows for visualizing communication data rates over time, as well as the runtime interactions between tasks and communication interfaces like TCP sockets.
- User-defined analysis
Adapt Tracealyzer to your specific use case and see what really matters to you. Tracealyzer 4 allows you to define custom intervals that highlight and report the time between selected software events. Moreover, with user-defined state machines you can visualize any state information in the trace, from software state variables or logged hardware states, either as state transition graphs or shown on a time line, much like in a logic analyzer.
