When you create trace sessions, it is not unusual that thousands of trace messages are generated. In order to be able to quickly extract information from the trace, you will need to filter the trace records and highlight important information. With TraceView Plus, you have the necessary filter capabilities at your fingertips: You can define a list of include and exclude rules, with simply pattern matching or regular expression syntax. The sample filtering engine can be used to highlight specific trace records. You can specify up to ten filter sets that can be quickly selected with a keyboard shortcut, depending on the view you need.
Creating trace sessions could not get any easier with TraceView Plus. You can create trace sessions by simply double-clicking .pdb files,.exe or .dll files, or by opening a TraceView Plus project file. If your .pdb file changes because you have recompiled your application, you can have TraceView Plus automatically reload the .pdb file. Alternatively, you can specify the provider GUID, and TraceView Plus will automatically locate the proper .pdb files.
