xperf boot trace error of trace having time inversion problems-caused by software? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings all,

    I have been running several boot traces on the same hardware testing several different software packages and there affect on the machines performance.  I have run multiple successful traces without issue, but if i install this one program (a antivirus/security suite that is still in beta) and run any sort of boot traces, they all return with the time inversion error and are unreadible.  My understanding of this issue was that it was a hardware based issue, but i have been able to run over a dozen boot traces without incident, until testing this one program.   So my question is this feasible that this beta level software could be the cause of the time inversion errors on these traces.  FYI< I have ran the boot trace with 5 training runs and then 5 boot traces twice now, and both times I ended up with the time inversion errors.  Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom.
