Scaling an Object-Oriented System Execution Visualizer through Sampling
Increasingly, applications are being built by combining existing software components. For the most part, a software developer can treat components as black-boxes. However, for some tasks, such as performance tuning tasks, a developer must consider how the components are implemented and how they interact. In these cases, a developer may be able to perform the task more effectively if dynamic information about how the system executes is available. To deal with the voluminous amount of dynamic information that can be generated, tool support is typically needed. In previous work, we demonstrated the utility of a tool, called AVID (Architectural VIsualization of Dynamics), that animates dynamic information in terms of developerchosen architectural views. One limitation of this earlier work was that AVID relied on detailed— trace-based—information collected about the system’s execution, limiting the duration of execution that could be considered. To enable AVID to scale to larger, lon...
