FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Golden Code Development Announces Trace AnalyzerTM
Brings New Level of Flexibility and Power to Trace Analysis Tasks
Atlanta, Georgia, October 17, 2001 - Golden Code Development Corporation
today announced the general availability of its Trace Analyzer for Java
product. The Trace Analyzer is a graphical program, written in Java,
which reads trace data files generated by network and system tracing software.
The release of Trace Analyzer v1.0 completes the Golden Code Trace Suite,
comprised also of Network TraceTM for OS/2*
and Kernel TraceTM for OS/2.
"We developed the Trace Analyzer to meet the needs of IT professionals
who demand better control over how they view and manipulate their trace
data", said Eric Faulhaber, manager of Golden Code Development's Software
Products Team. "This product fills a significant gap in the toolbox
of OS/2 systems and network engineers. Because the Trace Analyzer
is platform neutral, we can meet the immediate needs of this customer set
and still offer clients the widest range of deployment choices."
Product highlights include:
Features supported in this release include:
Power. Comprehensive protocol decodes and a host of useful,
preconfigured reports and data filters make the Trace Analyzer a powerful
analysis tool, even for the first-time user. For the more advanced
user, the detailed structure of every protocol is exposed, enabling the
creation of extremely robust reports and data filters. Symbolic name
aliasing substitutes names of the user's choice for numeric addresses,
to enable more meaningful and readable reports.
Flexibility. With a customizable report and data filtering
system, the Trace Analyzer allows a user to view trace data in completely
new ways. No longer are analysts limited to a small set of immutable,
preconfigured reports. If one of the standard reports does not meet
an analyst's needs, it is easily enhanced or replaced. Robust data
filters are easily created using a simple expression syntax and optional
user functions, in order to distill specific information from a trace.
The same filters are used for search functions, reducing the overall effort
needed to use the system.
Versatility. Written in 100% Java, the Trace Analyzer is designed
to run on multiple platforms "out of the box", maximizing deployment flexibility.
Because it takes advantage of the cross-platform user interface library
provided with Java 2, the user experience is consistent across platforms,
reducing training time and cost.
Ease of Use. The features of the Trace Analyzer, while powerful,
were designed also to be accessible and easy to use. Reporting, filtering,
and searching options are available directly from the main interface.
New data filters can be generated automatically with a double-click of
the mouse. Context-sensitive help is integrated into the application.
Support for network and non-network protocols and file formats
Customizable reporting system
