Command line (based on gdb) with graphic frontend. Remote debugging is possible via Ethernet or serial line.
WindView is timing debugger which displays detailed information for each event (such as the action that occurred, the context in which the action occurred, and the object associated with the action). In addition, WindView tags certain events with either high-resolution timestamps or event sequence numbers.
At the default logging level WindView shows only the context switches. You can configure WindView to show all task state transitions so that, for example, when a task goes from pended to active state, that event is logged and displayed. Or you can configure WindView to show details of selected objects in instrumented libraries. Instrumented objects include semaphore gives and takes, message queue sends and receives, timer expirations, and signals, as well as task and memory activities.
System trace and event record - yes, using VxView
