13.1.10 Tracepoint Restrictions

There are a number of restrictions on the use of tracepoints. As described above, tracepoint data gathering occurs on the target without interaction from gdb.

The following items describe some common problems, but it is not exhaustive, and you may run into additional difficulties not mentioned here.
