Easy (Event And State displaY) is an Upshot-like event and state display tool based on the ALOG event trace format. Easy displays states and events as graphical objects on an X-Y graph, allowing more detailed access to event data when necessary. On the Y axis, individual processors are shown, while the X axis extends in time. A particular event or state can be detailed by clicking on the corresponding graphical object. A window then pops up displaying relevant information such as the time the event occurred, its type, and other parameters stored in the trace. Also, the states are displayed in such a way that they show when nesting occurs. Figure 5 shows the startup phase of a pC++ program.
