1.2. Availability and compatibility

Every feature of the toolset is integrated into the ARM Workbench, which is installed with the ARM Profiler. Use the customized perspectives and views of the ARM Profiler within the ARM Workbench to set up hardware preferences, run simulations to produce profile reports and analyze data.

Currently, the ARM Profiler works on the following systems:


Although the ARM Profiler runs on 64-bit host machines, RealView Trace 2 does not have the drivers to support them, so profiling using an RTSM is your only option for generating analysis reports on this kind of hardware.


In order to capture program trace, you need to use a file system that can handle large files, such as NTFS or EXT3. FAT32 has a 4 GB maximum file size that can cause problems when collecting trace data.
