Flow, Interleave, Invariant, Pattern, Set

This lesson introduces the following analysis patterns: message flow, message interleave, message invariant, message pattern, and message set.

Message flow

Message flow trace and log analysis pattern generalizes NetFlow to software narratives. We count messages based on the set of adjoint threads of activity, like PID and TID. This also subsumes network traces aggregated by Src.Dst. Individual attributes can also be used, like aggregation by thread of activity and message sets.
