2.3.1. Debugger support for tracing

There is no direct debugger support for tracing. Instead, Tracer uses bit 4 of the RDI logging level ($rdi_log) variable to enable or disable tracing.

Using AXD

Select System Views ? Debugger Internals ? Internal Variables, and then double-click on the $rdi_log value to edit it:

  • to enable tracing, set $rdi_log to 0x00000010

  • to disable tracing, set $rdi_log to 0x00000000.

Using armsd

Enter the following at the command prompt:

  • to enable tracing under armsd, type $rdi_log=16

  • to disable tracing, type $rdi_log=0.
