Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 172)

Some trace and log messages may have different grammatical structure and content but similar semantics. Therefore, we can create a table listing equivalent messages (using some equivalence relation) and use it to construct simpler traces and logs as depicted in this picture:

One trivial example of Equivalent Messages analysis pattern is Quotient Trace. Another example is Inter-Correlational analysis of logs that have different structure and format. In such a case Equivalent Messages simplify the analysis of higher Trace Dimensions.
