I have found WPA an invaluable tool for performance investigations at system level. The next logical step is to enrich the system view with my own events to get more application context into the logged events.
Xperf can at least display the event data as tooltip (and in the complete summary table) but WPA as the successor of Xperf cannot do anything like this. Are there plans to update WPA with a custom ETW data view? If there are no plans yet I want
the first one to ask for this feature. It would be really great to have everything lined up in one very powerful GUI.
It seems that WPA can do this already. But to be able to read custom ETL events you need to enable a kernel session with at least PROC_THREAD+LOADER enabled to gather surrounding information. Then the display of custom events does work like a charm.
