Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 120)

When we have very large traces and Basic Facts containing some data values such as a user name, device name, or registry key value we may use Data Interval analysis pattern to select the trace fragment for the initial log analysis. The first and the last trace messages containing selected data for the closed Data Interval. Depending on the trace size and other considerations we can also choose open Data Intervals. It is illustrated in the following diagram where we use Analysis interval notation borrowed mathematics:

Interval boundary messages may also be used as Trace Mask for another trace.
