Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 182)

Source code can be considered as a type of a general trace from a corresponding generative narrative plane. We call it Generative Trace since it can generate different traces of execution. If such a trace contains logging code statements, then they form Declarative Trace as a subset of messages. Generative Trace also overlaps with the corresponding Moduli Trace. We can apply many trace and log analysis patterns and even consider line number axis as pseudo-time. The following diagram illustrates Linked Messages analysis pattern in the context of Generative Trace and generated traces:
