Abstract

Complex business transactions on the web usually require that a transaction pass through multiple logical nodes from inception to completion and developers encounter a problem when trying to debug transactions which span such nodes. This article describes the ability to distinguish the activity associated with the components of different logical units occurring on a single node, the ability to collect those component activities across an arbitrary number of nodes, where they do not necessarily have to have the knowledge of each other as well as the ability to analyze the results of those activities in a convenient map structure
