Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 144)

Status updates, error message boxes, and even abort errors can all be considered as examples of software traces and logs. We call such a log with one message only Singleton Trace. Please don’t confuse it with Singleton Event analysis pattern which is trivial for Singleton Traces. We illustrate this pattern with this picture of error message (in Russian it means “The machine doesn’t work. Code: SB”) from a lemonade-dispensing machine:

The message in such a trace may contain the associated stack trace as a trivial example of Fiber Bundle.
