At ISMM 2000, Trishul Chilimbi, Ben Zorn and I presented a paper on Designing 
a Trace Format for Heap Allocation Events. Following discussion at ISMM, a 
revised version of the MetaTF specification language has been produced. The 
specification and tools to generate trace readers and writers are now 
available from
(as is the original paper).

At the moment, we have very few traces. Nevertheless, we'd like to realise the 
ambition, expressed in the paper, of creating a repository of traces and their 
specifications and we encourage others to contribute. Of course, we should 
contribute some more of our own:-)
