Correct display of waveforms with high frequency content such as clock pulses requires a bandwidth of at least five times the clock rate of the system under test.
The other technique is that, the timer can be used as counter by applying clock pulses externally and comparing the count in counter with 'A' register, but it requires external clock source, since 8051 doesn't have any clock out pin.
