2012-11-29

When you try to understand in what order the program executed by using Test Report, there are another information other than the executed path in Test Report. (CPU load data, Variable value data, EventTrigger data and so on…)

So let’s use the filter setting and display only the executed path in Test Report.
The filter setting allows you to easily follow the program’s executed path.

First of all, you select [Report Analysis] -> [Set the View filter of Test Report...] and display the View filter of Test Report Setting dialog.

menu(Set the View filter of Test Report)

Please set the following conditions in the View filter of Test Report Setting dialog.

  • All CPU load data turn to hide (“From 0% to 100% of data will be hide” in the window.)
  • Check “Hide the Report data in byte unit within the variable value output data”
  • Check “Hide the EventTrigger data”

In order to begin the report analysis smoothlyPosted on
2012-11-20

You can left any mark (comment) in Test Report of DT10.
By this mark in the Test Report, it will lead to migrate to analysis work smoothly.

The marking feature allows you to enter the comments at any timing during getting Test Report. Therefore, it makes clear for you to identify the range you should focus at the analysis by linking the key stroke of target device with the comment.

For example, in case that you would like to get Test Report from “Power On” to “Power Off” of the target, you should start getting Test Report in the state of the target’s “Power Off”.
When you start getting Test Report, “Getting Test Report” dialog appears.
You should enter your mark in the “Book Mark” field on this dialog.

Dialog while retrieving test report

At the same time of the target’s “Power On” operation, enter “START” in the comment field and click “Set” button. So you will find the mark you set on the bottom.
Also at the same time of the target’s “Power Off” operation, input the comment as “END”.
You set the mark in this way, your comment will be registered into the log nearby “Power On, Power Off”.

When you stop getting Test Report. you can find your marked strings in the “Mark”, “Mark type” field.

Test Report(mark)

You also find a list of marks called as “Mark View”.

Mark View

You can find the Report No. that you set the mark by checking the Mark View.
Also you double click on the Mark View, you can jump to the designated Report No. of Test Report.

The example in the above figure, the marked “START”~”END” is corresponding to the Report No. 400000~450000.

You can narrow the range by trimming Test Report or specifying the range for Function Trace Report, Event Trace Report within the Report No.400000~450000.

Additionally, you can edit / add the mark to the Test Report which already obtained.

You set the mark to the Test Report which you once finished the analysis, it will lead to the smooth re-analysis when you need it.

2012-11-18

You can forward in sequence only the step which you would like to see in Test Report.
This method is useful for the case that you do not need filtering, but there are steps not to be checked.

First of all, you configure the filtering with the condition of steps to be shown in Report Data.

Filter Setting

Then you turn ON the check box of “When the Function Trace is analyzed, the filter setting is considered” in the settings dialog. (Select [Tool] -> [Settings] in menu.)

Consider the filter settings during trace analysis function

When you display Function Trace Report, the Function Trace Report which display only the steps setting filter.

Function Trace Report

After finishing Function Trace Analysis, reset the filter of Test Report.
When you perform the step movement (Ctl+F8F7…) from Function Trace in that state, you can forward only step you would like to see while you overview in the Test Report.
