9.1.2. Monitor mode

The ARM9E-S also supports monitor mode where on a breakpoint or watchpoint, an internal Instruction Abort or Data Abort is generated.

When used in conjunction with a debug monitor program activated by the abort exception entry, you can debug the ARM946E-S processor while the execution of critical interrupt service routines continues.

The debug monitor program typically communicates with the debug host over the ARM946E-S debug communication channel. Real-time debug is described in Monitor mode debugging.
