Is it possible to use an event during the test execution to trigger a certain trace step as part of the trace analysis?
The trace analysis is a post-processing mechanism based on recorded trace files.
Therefore the trigger must be present in the trace file as well.
There are different ways to add the trigger to the recording:
- If the event is based on signal behavior, it is possible to record the related signals during the test execution.
The trigger block step in the trace analysis can then be used, to trigger the analysis based on the signal behavior.
- Create explicit synchronization points (e.g. so-called events in MDF4 data files) during the test execution.
These synchronization points can then be reused during the trace analysis. However, this feature is not available for all tool connections.
