Simple and combine events

Most events can be described in a single event buffer slot; we call these simple events. When there's too much information to describe the event in a single buffer slot, the event is described in multiple event buffer slots; we call this a combine event. The event buffer slots all look the same, so there's no need for the data-capture program to distinguish between them.

For more information about simple events and combine events, see the Interpreting Trace Data chapter.
