Software tracing is an efficient way to examining the behavior of a running driver without the overhead of debug print statements or a checked build. This paper provides a general introduction to software tracing in kernel-mode drivers for the Windows family of operating systems using Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) and the Windows software trace preprocessor (WPP).
