    • Missing RAM functions from Execution Profile


      I am debugging an externally built executable in Embedded Studio, my setup is NXP MIMXRT1060-EVK board + JLink.

      My main purpose is to profile my application, and I found Embedded Studio very good for that.
      it is the only tool I found so far to find hotspots with SWO PC Sampling, since it shows hit counts at instruction level.

      There is a major problem however,
      in the Execution Profile I can only see functions and instructions in flash.
      The code I mostly need to profile is running from SDRAM, at address 0x80000000-0x82000000.

      The Execution Trace view seems to collect RAM PC Samples, it shows addresses and correct symbols,
      but this data seems to be filtered away in the Execution Profile view.

      Am I missing some configuration? Any help would really be appreciated

    • Hi,

      attached you can find the MCUXpresso project used to build the test application and the ES project used.
      I added a couple screen shots of Instruction Trace and Execution Profile taken with the project provided.

      Many thanks,
