What are the restrictions on the type of image I can profile with RealView Profiler?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)

Answer

RVP does not support systems which use remapping (for example, with an MMU). The profiler is primarily targeted at single threaded applications.

The profiler does not support images generated with ADS. Supported build tools are RVCT 2.2 and later and GCC 3.4 and later.

Profiling images without debug information is supported, but in this case the profiler will not be able to relate the instruction stream to the source code. Profiling without symbolic information (a plain binary file) is not supported.
