  1. Tracing

    In software engineering, tracing is a specialized use of logging to record information about a program's execution. This information is typically used by programmers for debugging purposes, and additionally, depending on the type and detail of information contained in a trace log, by experienced system administrators or technical support personnel and software monitoring tools to diagnose common problems with software. Tracing is a cross-cutting concern. There is not always a clear distinction between tracing and other forms of logging, except that the term tracing is almost never applied to logging that is a functional requirement of a program. Logs that record program usage or operating system events primarily of interest to a system administrator fall in a gray area with regards to terminology. This article deals with tracing that is primarily for debugging or diagnostic purposes.
