    77Tracing a real-time system using just software is a complex process that involves a number of components on the host and in the target working together. Software based tracing is useful because it is portable across all architectures and board support packages  how-ever tracing requires instrumenting the code, which means it is altered with the addition of code to log various events and records in real-time, and there is an execution overhead which changes the real-time profile of a system. If a user is mindful of these factors and understands the nature of the trace process these effects can be compensated for.
