Is there a api ( or any patch ) for it ?Memory reads and writes is surely going to generate a huge amount of output! There are various DEBUG_* symbols at the top of exec.c and ioport.c. I've only used a few of these: DEBUG_UNASSIGNED - prints a message when an unmapped page is referenced (TCG only, presumably?) DEBUG_IOPORT - prints a message when any I/O port is referenced DEBUG_UNUSED_IOPORT - prints a message when a non-emulated I/O port is referenced There are several more if you look at the code. Rich.
When are these functions called : kvm_read_guest_page , kvm_read_guest_atomic , kvm_write_guest_page present in kvm_main.c ? When qemu wants to read/write to a page ? If qemu has to read/write on the vm's memory ( RAM ) , does the process always involve kvm ?
