Event window is the largest window on this interface that located in the left center position. This is where the timeline state diagram display of the data collected will be shown. This screen shows each of the recorded event sequences along its own timeline.
Before you load in any data file, the event window is basically empty. Shown below.
Once you load in a file, you will see it as shown on the screen shot below.
In the center of the event window, you will see a state diagram. On the left side, there are the index ID for each processor. There are no arbitrary limits on the numbering sequences, but they will always display in order, from lowest to highest on the screen. And for each processor, there is a row to show its states/events. On the top and bottom, there are two rules to show you corresponding time scale for a particular data file.
The Event Window is scrollable, both horizontally and vertically in order to allow viewing of the full data set without compressing everything into one window. Use the scroll bars located below and to the right of the Event Window to move the display to the portion of the record you want to view. GistView attempts to scale the event sequence displays in order to fit as many on the screen as possible, but with data files containing many event sequences this isn't always possible.
There are several functionalities that the user can perform in this window.
Notice the vertical black line in the EventWindow and the Slider at the bottom of the Event Window. They together called a Indicator. You can move the line by draging the Slider. But that's not the only thing the Indicator can do. The most important functionality of Indicator is to specify a time point so that we can display the profile of each PID on Profile Graph at that time point.
If you move Indicator to a time point you want, just click the
ProfileGraph Button on the Tool Bar. Here you go! You should
have seen there are something show up in the Profile Graph. If you want
to learn more about Profile Graph, Go Here!
But wait a minute, you may want to display profile of those PIDs not on a time point, but the changes in a time interval. How do I specify a time region? Here's the hint. Notice there's a button on the Tool Bar called "select/deselect a region". Now you know what to do. Click on that button, you will see another Indicator show up! Now you can use these two Indicators to specify a time region. Then click on the ProfileGraph Button again, you will get what you want.
To Zoom In, click the "Zoom In" button on the left side, then click a time point to specify starting point, click at another point to specify ending point, then the event window will rescale the time scale, and zoom in to show up the specified time interval.
To Zoom out, click the "Zoom Out" button on the left side, then you will see a pop up window to ask by how much you want to zoom out. Specify the number, then click "OK", the event window will zoom out to show the specifies time interval.
