10.2.2. Breakpoints and watchpoints

The processor supports six hardware breakpoints, four watchpoints, and a standard Debug Communications Channel (DCC). Four of the breakpoints match only to virtual address and the other two match against either virtual address or context ID, or Virtual Machine Identifier (VMID). All the watchpoints can be linked to two breakpoints to enable a memory request to be trapped in a given process context.
