Linux (.rpm-based)

For openSUSEopenSUSE,  RedHatredhat,  CentOSCentOS, and  FedoraFedora, we provide rpms on You may also add the Simutrace repository to your system to stay up-to-date with the current version of Simutrace. The repository link depends on your distribution and operating system version.

To install the repo in openSUSE 13.2, do the following once:
zypper addrepo

You can then install Simutrace with:

We are currently working on a clean Simutrace integration patch for QEMU and a modified Linux kernel, which contains hypercalls to trace semantic information such as process and memory management events. For now, you can download a raw version of our QEMU working directory here. This version may not be stable or even work with the current version of Simutrace, but it is a good example of how to integrate Simutrace into a full system simulator. You will find all modifications to QEMU source files wrapped in CONFIG_SIMUTRACE. To initialize the connection to Simutrace, start QEMU with the -simutrace option.
