Traceview: A Trace Visualization Tool
September/October 1991 (vol. 8 no. 5)
pp. 19-28

The design, development, and application of Traceview, a general-purpose trace-visualization tool that implements the trace-management and I/O features usually found in special-purpose trace-analysis systems, are described. The aspects of trace visualization that can be incorporated into a reusable tool are identified. The tradeoff in general-purpose design versus semantically based, detailed trace-data analysis is evaluated. Display methods and Traceview applications are discussed.
