Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 61)

Some tracing tools such as Citrix CDFControl have an option to split software traces and logs into several files during long recording. Although this should be done judiciously it is really necessary sometimes. We call this pattern Split Trace. What to do if we get several trace files and we want to use some other analysis tool such as Citrix CDFAnalyzer? If we know that the problem happened just before the tracing was stopped we can look at the last few such files from the file sequence (although we recommend a circular trace here). Otherwise we can convert them into CVS files and import into Excel which also supports adjoint threading.
