Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 132)

Sometimes log messages are formatted with mistakes, buffers are not cleared before copying, copied strings are truncated, tracing implementation and presentation contains coding defects. There can be internal corruption when messages are formed or “corruption” during presentation, for example, default field conversion rules (like in Excel). We call this pattern Corrupt Message. Such messages may affect trace and log analysis where data search may not show full relevant results. We then recommend to double check findings by using Data Flow of a different Message Invariant.
