General runtime Analysis Settings

The General Runtime Analysis settings are part of the Configuration Settings dialog box, which allows you to configure settings for each node.

By default, the settings of each node are inherited from those of the parent node. When you override the settings of a parent node, changes are propagated to all child nodes within the same Configuration. Overridden fields are displayed in bold.

Selective instrumentation

By default, runtime analysis tools instrument all components of source code under analysis.

The Selective Instrumentation settings allow you to more finely define which units (classes or functions) you want to instrument and trace.

Advanced options

Snapshot settings

In some case, such as with applications that never terminate or when working with timing or memory-sensitive targets, you might need to dump traces at specifics points in your code.

For each tab, click the ... button to open the function name selection box. Use the Add and Remove buttons to create a list of function names.

See Generating SCI Dumps for more information.

Static file storage

Depending on the runtime analysis feature, the product generates .tsf or .fdc temporary static data files during source code instrumentation of the application under analysis.

To edit the General Runtime Analysis settings for a node:

  1. In the Project Explorer, click the Settings button.

  2. Select a node in the Project Explorer pane.

  3. In the Configuration Settings list, expand Runtime Analysis and select General.

  4. Select Snapshot, Selective Instrumentation, Static File Storage or Miscellaneous.

  5. When you have finished, click OK to validate the changes.
