|[tracecompass-dev] Promoting the Resources View to first view of Trace Compass LTTng Analysis|
I'd like to discuss moving the resources view to the front of the LTTng perspective.
Historically the Control Flow View was there. Reasons: when we started developing Trace Compass, we had 1 core, maybe 2. Now we have over 16.
Also the resources view has been getting a lot of improvements and I think they should be highlighted.
1- there is a threads entry, so you can see which thread is running on which CPU.
2- The CPU status is now a tree with the contributing IRQ/SoftIRQs under it.
3- The CPU Frequency is a visible entry.
This actually makes two interesting points:
1- the Resources view has most of the data of the control flow view already available in it.
2- It shows data in a more intuitive way when zoomed out
3- It limits the data shown vertically by limiting us to a given resource. (CPU at the moment)
Because of this, and the fact that KernelShark displays data in a similar way already, I propose that we try making the Resources view the star when opening up a Trace Compass kernel trace.
