Linux Application Instruction tracing with DS-5

Hello, 

 

I have an altera DE1-SoC board which is running the precompiled linux image provided by altera. I need to perform instruction tracing of a linux application. I want using DS-5 altera edition to do this instruction trracing, however I have a couple of questions: 

 

I have been following this documents: 

 

http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.dui0446y/dui0446y_debugger_user_guide.pdf [1] 

 

https://developer.arm.com/products/software-development-tools/ds-5-development-studio/editions/customized-editions/altera [2] 

 

 

On [1] it says: 

 

"You can configure trace for bare-metal or Linux kernel targets using the DTSL options that DS-5Debugger provides." 

 

Does this means that the instruction tracing is only supported for bare-metal applications and linux kernel applications? Is it possible to perform instruction tracing on a linux application (not kernel or bare-metal). In the DS-5 tool when I select connection to bare-metal or kernel targets I see a Debug and trace services layer (DTSL). But it is not available for linux applications. I am missing something here?
