Kieker Trace Diagnosis 3.1.0 Released

We are pleased to anounce, that we released Version 3.1.0 of our Kieker Trace Diagnosis tool on June 02, 2018. As usual, you can download the release from

Some distinct and selected features:

  • Monitoring logs can now be read directly from a ZIP file.
  • The internal documentation has been improved.
  • The signatures of method calls are now taken from the after operation events rather than from the before operation events. For most users, this is not important. However, some applications take the methods’ results into account for the records, which means that their after operation events have an enriched method signature compared to their before operation events.

We also fixed some minor bugs. You can find the full changelog in the release archive.
