Abstract

While running a performance analyzer on a application, it is beneficial for analysis purposes to group programs together to indicate portions of the trace as system services vs application code, as typically only application code will be changed to improve performance. This article describes a method by which a performance analyzer user can identify prior to trace execution portions of an application flow, typically system services, which can be excluded from trace data.
