Abstract

Disclosed is a method to highlight relationship among entities in the ouput of a simulation run, typically displayed in a waveform viewer. The method propose to enrich the simulation data with additional information in order to personalise them and to be able to treat them as entities. Examples of entities in the micro-processor simulation domain are instructions or cache requests. The additional information enables to highlight successor/predecessor, identity, or hierarchy relationship of these entities using colors or other markers.
