developers create high-performing applications for Windows NT Alpha, Compaq offers the
NT-Atom Tool Development Framework (TDF). Using NT-Atom, developers can generate valuable
data about executable programs data that can be used for debugging and analyzing
performance. Basic block counters, cache simulators, and profilers are examples of
analysis tools that can be created using NT-Atom.
The NT-Atom TDF

procedure, basic block, or instruction boundaries. At run time, the program executes
normally while the instrumentation points invoke routines that generate debugging and
