TRBMAR_EL1, Trace Buffer Memory Attribute Register

The TRBMAR_EL1 characteristics are:

Purpose

Controls Trace Buffer Unit accesses to memory.

If the trace buffer pointers specify virtual addresses, the address properties are defined by the translation tables and this register is ignored.

Configuration

This register is present only when FEAT_TRBE is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to TRBMAR_EL1 are UNDEFINED.

Attributes

TRBMAR_EL1 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The TRBMAR_EL1 bit assignments are:

Trace buffer shareability domain. Defines the shareability domain for Normal memory used by the trace buffer.

SHMeaning
0b00

Non-shareable.

0b10

Outer Shareable.

0b11

All other values are reserved.

This field is ignored when TRBMAR_EL1.Attr specifies any of the following memory types:

  • Any Device memory type.
  • Normal memory, Inner Non-cacheable, Outer Non-cacheable.

All Device and Normal Inner Non-cacheable Outer Non-cacheable memory regions are always treated as Outer Shareable.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

When FEAT_MTE is implemented and TRBMAR_EL1.Attr[3:0] == 0b0000:

  • Tagged Normal memory, Outer Write-Back Non-transient, Read-allocate Write-allocate.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Attr[3:0], bits [3:0]

Accessing the TRBMAR_EL1

The PE might ignore a direct write to TRBMAR_EL1 if TRBLIMITR_EL1.E == 0b1.

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:
