Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 133)

In Adjoint Message analysis pattern description we mentioned compressing message sequences having the same message attribute into one message. Considering the trace as “topological” space and message attribute as “equivalence” relation we introduce Quotient Trace analysis pattern by analogy with quotient space in topology. By endowing message sequences having the same attribute with some “metric” such as cardinality of Message Set we can also visually distinguish resulted quotient messages if they have the same attribute but from different sequences at different times. All this is illustrated in the following diagram:
