Relog

The C++ Build Insights SDK is compatible with Visual Studio 2017 and above. To see the documentation for these versions, set the Visual Studio Version selector control for this article to Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio 2019. It's found at the top of the table of contents on this page.

The Relog function is used to read MSVC events from an Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) trace and write them into a new, modified ETW trace.

Syntax

template <
    typename... TAnalyzerGroupMembers,
    typename... TReloggerGroupMembers>
RESULT_CODE Relog(
    const char*                                   inputLogFile,
    const char*                                   outputLogFile,
    unsigned                                      numberOfAnalysisPasses,
    unsigned long long                            systemEventsRetentionFlags,
    StaticAnalyzerGroup<TAnalyzerGroupMembers...> analyzerGroup,
    StaticReloggerGroup<TReloggerGroupMembers...> reloggerGroup);

template <
    typename... TAnalyzerGroupMembers,
    typename... TReloggerGroupMembers>
RESULT_CODE Relog(
    const wchar_t*                                inputLogFile,
    const wchar_t*                                outputLogFile,
    unsigned                                      numberOfAnalysisPasses,
    unsigned long long                            systemEventsRetentionFlags,
    StaticAnalyzerGroup<TAnalyzerGroupMembers...> analyzerGroup,
    StaticReloggerGroup<TReloggerGroupMembers...> reloggerGroup);

Parameters

TAnalyzerGroupMembers
This parameter is always deduced.

TReloggerGroupMembers
This parameter is always deduced.

inputLogFile
The input ETW trace that you wish to read events from.

outputLogFile
The file in which to write the new events.

numberOfAnalysisPasses
The number of analysis passes to run on the input trace. The trace gets passed through the provided analyzer group once per analysis pass.

systemEventsRetentionFlags
A bitmask that specifies which system ETW events to keep in the relogged trace. For more information, see RELOG_RETENTION_SYSTEM_EVENT_FLAGS.

analyzerGroup
The analyzer group used for the analysis phase of the relogging session. Call MakeStaticAnalyzerGroup to create an analyzer group. To use a dynamic analyzer group obtained from MakeDynamicAnalyzerGroup, first encapsulate it inside a static analyzer group by passing its address to MakeStaticAnalyzerGroup.

reloggerGroup
The relogger group that relogs events into the trace file specified in outputLogFile. Call MakeStaticReloggerGroup to create a relogger group. To use a dynamic relogger group obtained from MakeDynamicReloggerGroup, first encapsulate it inside a static relogger group by passing its address to MakeStaticReloggerGroup.

Return Value

A result code from the RESULT_CODE enum.

Remark

The input trace is passed through the analyzer group numberOfAnalysisPasses times. There's no similar option for relogging passes. The trace is passed trough the relogger group only once, after all analysis passes are complete.

The relogging of system events like CPU samples from within a relogger class isn't supported. Use the systemEventsRetentionFlags parameter to decide which system events to keep in the output trace.
