ARM Streamline Performance Analyzer is a system-wide visualizer and profiler for systems running ARM Linux or Android native applications and libraries. Combining an ARM Linux kernel driver, target daemon, and a graphical user interface, it transforms system trace and sampling data into reports that present the data in both visual and statistical forms. Streamline uses hardware performance counters with kernel metrics to provide an accurate representation of system resources. Streamline supports Cortex™-A8, Cortex-A9, ARM9™, and ARM11™ processors running ARM Linux or Android. For the Cortex-A9, it supports both uniprocessors and multiprocessors.
The following topics describe how to set up your target to run Streamline:
