SEER Traces

Location: UCLA

Tool: SEER Trace collector

Year: 1994


The researchers on Seer created a large body of traces of user behavior on mobile machines. The traces consist of about half a gigabyte of compressed (gzipped) trace files that record all file activity except reads and writes by nine different users who were working both connected and disconnected on Linux-based laptop computers. The trace lengths range from about 1 to about 6 months.


Linux/i386 users can download a program called dumpobs (Redhat version) that will read the compressed binary trace format and produce ASCII output.
