Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 105)

Reading Boris Uspensky’s book “A Poetics of Composition: The Structure of the Artistic Text and Typology of a Compositional Form” (in its original Russian version) led me to borrow the concept of viewpoints. The resulting analysis pattern is called Trace Viewpoints. These viewpoints are, “subjective” (semantically laden from the perspective of a trace and log reader), and can be (not limited to):

- Error viewpoints (see also False Positive Error, Periodic Error, and Error Distribution)

- Use case (functional) viewpoints (see also Use Case Trail)

- Architectural (design) viewpoints (see also Milestones)

- Implementation viewpoints (see also Implementation Discourse, Macrofunctions, and Focus of Tracing)

- Non-functional viewpoints (see also Counter Value and Diegetic Messages)

- Signal / noise viewpoints (see also Background and Foreground Components)

In comparison, Activity Regions, Data Flow, Thread of Activity, and Adjoint Thread of Activity are “objective” (structural, syntactical) viewpoints.
