  4 +![Process Event Chart example, as a PNG](https://github.com/brendangregg/EvtChart/raw/master/procevt_sample.png)
  5 +
  6 +This example visualizes the process execution of the following shell script (sleeptest.sh):
  7 +
  8 +```script
  9 +#!/bin/sh
  10 +
  11 +/usr/bin/sleep 1 # /usr/bin to avoid builtins
  12 +/usr/bin/sleep 1
  13 +/usr/bin/sleep 1
  14 +/usr/bin/sleep 1
  15 +/usr/bin/sleep 1
  16 +date
  17 +```
  18 +
  19 +Event charts are a type of Gantt chart that can be used during performance analysis of system and application tasks, allowing the origin of latency to be quickly identified.
  20 +
  21 +The Event Chart software processes a generic event log, which may contain any event type (not just process execution). See the README and the documentation in evtchart.pl for more details.
