As software moves off the desktop and into data centers, and cell phones use server requests as the other half of apps, the observation tools for large-scale distributed transaction systems are not keeping up with the complexity of the environment. Exploring a simpler environment can help expose some of the problems that confront today's tool users and tool builders.
