Trace Analysis Patterns (Part 200)

Trace and log analysis patterns may be additionally applied not only to a database like tables but also to texts (as an example of general trace and log analysis). Sentences may form trace messages with paragraphs and chapters corresponding to traditional ATIDs (IDs for Adjoint Threads of Activity) such as TID and PID in the most simple syntax mapping case, and certain sentences may be interpreted as Silent Messages.

Different attribute generation schemas may be used, for example, selected vocabulary may be used to assign TID numbers. More complex cases may require paratexts, supplementary texts providing additional structure and semantic information like in the case of Paratext memory analysis pattern, the case of extended traces.

The opposite process of converting traces and logs to text is also possible with additional paratext generation if necessary. We call this two-way analysis pattern Text Trace. After converting texts to logs it is possible to apply the majority of trace and log analysis patterns from the catalog.
