Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 142)

We can apply Message Set trace and log analysis pattern to itself and buildĀ multilevel Message Directory. The pattern name come from the analogy with memory management page tables, where we can select every 10th message to build a smaller Message Set, and then select every 10th message from it to build another Message Set, and so on. When looking at a higher level Message Set we can select a trace message and then look at its Message Context in the lower level Message Sets:

Message Directory is similar to Trace Frames analysis pattern but is fine-grained, and more individual message oriented than the latter analysis pattern. However, the former pattern can be used to implement the latter one.
