Michel Dagenais |||dec2014_giraldeau:ctpd|||Distributed traces modelling and critical path analysis||| The dependencies between the different events causing state changes in processes are automatically analyzed in order to compute the critical path between a start and end event (e.g. query and response). This analysis takes into account several effects including parallel computations happening asynchronously and many different models of distributed computations. This is extremely helpful in identifying where the total time is spent to serve a request.

More particularly, we focus on the development of TRRS (Trouble Report Recommendation System) that we have developed at the Software Behaviour Analysis Research Lab at Concordia University. The system is used to find crash reports using a historical database that are similar to an incoming report. This way, the triaging team can direct the report to the appropriate development teams, resulting in a significant reduction of time and effort spent on processing crash reports. TRRS is being integrated with Ericsson's crash report handling system.

LTTng-Tmf-hack Day, May 14 from 9h30

Meeting room:  L-4812  Bring your laptop or your whole desktop!

Informal hacking/tutorial on LTTng and Trace Compass.  Come with your questions and projects and we'll all work on it together, or in small groups.  Depending on the demand, some more formal sessions may be scheduled for those interested.  We have the room all day.
