Networks-on-Chip (NoCs) have appeared as design strategy to overcome the limitations, in terms of scalability, efficiency, and power consumption of current buses. In this paper, the authors discuss the idea of using NoCs to monitor system behavior at run-time by tracing activities at initiators and targets. Main goal of the monitoring system is to retrieve information useful for run-time optimization and resources allocation in adaptive systems. Information detected by probes embedded within NIs is sent to a central unit, in charge of collecting and elaborating the data.
