Intel®’s Trace Hub has arrived in the nick of time for faster software debug. Code bases, including UEFI firmware, have gotten so large and so complex that just navigating through instruction trace data to find the root cause of a bug is close to impossible.
The new methods embedded in Trace Hub and enabled by sophisticated debug tools, like SourcePoint®, will navigate through multithreaded software running on multicore systems so that software development stays on schedule. And the product gets to market when it’s supposed to. Nailing the real cause of a bug when it’s in an unrelated thread running on another core is never simple, but Trace Hub makes it easier.
