PART 5: Software Trace Analysis Patterns
Recently we analyzed a few logs which ended with a specialized Activity Region (Volume 5) from a subsystem that sets operational parameters. The problem description stated that the system became unresponsive after changing parameters in a certain sequence. Usually, for that system, when we stop logging (even after setting parameters) we end up with messages from some Background Components (Volume 5) since some time passes between the end of setting parameters activity and the time the operator sends stop logging request:
However, in the problem case we see message flow stops right in the middle ...
