The growing complexity of embedded system hardware and software makes their behaviour analysis a challenging task. In this context, tracing appears to be a promising solution as it provides relevant information about the system execution. However, trace management and analysis are hindered by several issues like the diversity of trace formats, the incompatibility of trace analysis methods, the problem of trace size and its storage as well as by the lack of visualization scalability. In this we present solution for trace management, debug, analysis and testing of embedded systems during development and testing phase. It provides generic solutions for trace storage and defines interfaces and plug in mechanisms for integrating diverse analysis tools even in case of multicore targets.
