Simulation monitoring tools are needed in hardware/software codesign for performance debugging, model validation and hardware/software partitioning purposes. Existing tools are either hardware- or software-centric and lack integrated and seamless co-monitoring. In this paper, the authors present a system-level co-monitoring tool that can monitor the computation and communication activities of SystemC user modules, as well as bus, memory and processor usage, on a variety of hardware/software embedded configurations that may include an RTOS. They also describe how performance metrics are generated during or after simulation and made accessible to users or external applications.
