Fastline is an MTI plug-in that enables you to use Streamline to analyze software running on Fast Models. The plug-in filename is FastlineTrace.so or FastlineTrace.dll.
Fastline generates traces in .apc format that you can import into Streamline for analysis. It enables analysis of Linux-based kernels, native applications running on a Linux-based OS, and bare-metal applications that are built with debug information, without the need for extra instrumentation.
How you use Fastline depends on whether it is running on bare-metal or Linux. Before you load the plug-in into a model, you must run one of the following Python scripts:
For Linux, run extract-offsets.py to extract the address offsets of Linux kernel data structures.
For bare-metal, run process-elf.py to generate a csv file that contains function addresses and symbol names.
These scripts are located in $PVLIB_HOME/plugins/source/FastlineTrace/scripts/.
Fastline has the following features:
