Percepio offers two novel capabilities for embedded software developers, Visual Trace Diagnostics and IoT Device Monitoring, This way, we help developers improve software quality, product performance, development productivity, and time-to-market.
Using Visual Trace Diagnostics to Uncover Hidden Issues
Embedded IoT software is often multi-threaded, event driven, and resource-constrained. This increases the difficulty of IoT software development and calls for better means for debugging, beyond the limited scope of traditional debugging tools.
Software event tracing can improve IoT software development by providing a timeline of the overall software activity. This is very useful information for debugging, profiling and for finding software design flaws. Tracing can be performed entirely in software and remain active over long durations. It can even be used in deployment.
However, tracing produces lots of repetitive data. When debugging, you need to find a small number of anomalies. This can be like searching for needles in a haystack.
The human brain is visual and excels at pattern recognition. Visual trace diagnostics makes it possible to leverage this capability to make the anomalies stand out. This builds on software event tracing, but refines the data into a rich, meaningful model and visual overviews that makes it easy to spot anomalies. The result is quick, intuitive comprehension, even for large traces. This approach is invaluable in system-level debugging and for finding software design flaws.
Join Dr. Johan Kraft as he explores visual trace diagnostics and presents real-world examples of its use in locating and solving hidden software issues.
Continuous Software Improvement with IoT Device Monitoring and Visual Trace Diagnostics
Even the best developers cannot anticipate all the issues that may occur in deployed Internet of Things (IoT) devices: elusive software bugs, hardware glitches, algorithms that do not perform as well as intended, and user-interface issues. DevAlert enables continuous software improvement, so you can build flawless products through data-driven product improvements and the rapid resolution of remaining issues that would otherwise harm data integrity, device availability, battery life, and the overall user experience. Instead, IoT device monitoring and visual trace diagnostics adds an essential layer of defense to reduce support costs and increases sales revenue—and may even prevent accidents, product recalls and legal action.

Percepio DevAlert - IoT Device Monitoring and Diagnostics
People often have problems with IoT devices due to software issues, and the developers are largely unaware. What if IoT device developers could be notified about real-world issues in IoT devices automatically and get detailed diagnostics on the very first occurrence? This is provided by Percepio DevAlert, a novel cloud service that gives real-world feedback about issues in the device software, that allows for rapid continuous improvement and for embracing DevOps in IoT device development. Learn from real-world usage and make a great product that beats the competition. This is a brief summary of the full presentation, found at https://percepio.com/devalert
