Make more effective use of the sensorpoint technology in the new Wind River Management Suite when you work with OC Systems' expert consulting team.
Sensorpoint instrumentation provides the Wind River Management Suite with
more powerful diagnostic capabilities,
speeding problem resolution in device software.
In Wind River Field Diagnostics, field
service engineers and development engineers use sensorpoints to
reduce mean-time-to-repair for remote device applications.
In Wind River Workbench Diagnostics, design
engineers use sensorpoints to dynamically instrument device
software to rapidly isolate, diagnose and correct software defects
in running systems.
With sensorpoints, you gain visibility into an embedded
application as it executes:
Dynamically patch any function on a running device.
Access local and global variables within the scope
of the function.
Monitor, configure and control the execution.
For example, you can use sensorpoints for:
injection - Sensorpoints can modify the program as well as monitor
it. With sensorpoints, you can just modify the return codes or data of
routines to execute paths that would not otherwise be taken.
changes - Sensorpoints can include arbitrary C code. Try out your
fix as a sensorpoint to make sure it works. Leave the sensorpoints in
place until the next delivery and keep going.
- Sensorpoints can implement assertions. Add assertions to your
application during trouble shooting and your application becomes
No modifications are made to any application source code. The code does
not have to be recompiled or rebuilt to include the instrumentation.
Overhead is minimal; the logging framework is non-invasive, with a very
Application-specific sensorpoint libraries
Sensorpoint libraries that are built into the Wind River Management
Suite provide information about your system's vital signs.
But to take advantage of the full value of sensorpoint
technology you'll want to build a library of custom sensorpoints for
your embedded system.
