Event Tracer (ET) uses the built-in trace mechanism in Erlang and provides tools for collection and graphical viewing of trace data.
The viewed trace data is normally collected from Erlang trace ports or files.
This manual describes the

GS based GUI it does suffice with R7B.
In addition to this introductory chapter, the
Event Tracers User's Guide contains the following chapters:
Chapter 2: "Tutorial" provides a walk-through of the various parts of the application. The tutorial is based on
Jayson Vantuyl's article
Chapter 3: "Description" describes the architecture and typical usage of the application.
Chapter 4: "Advanced examples" gives some usage examples
