The use of embedded run-control is fast becoming a standard for remote debug on Intel server designs. It’s important to understand the key functionality and performance criteria in evaluating a solution for this application.
Run-control technology is rapidly becoming a de facto standard for forensics retrieval within high-availability, Intel Xeon-class servers. How did this standard come to be established?
The conventional approach to hardware-assisted debugging on Intel platforms involves physically connecting an external probe to the target. Is there a better way?
