This the tracking bug of TaskTracer and Isis.

What is TaskTracer?

TaskTracer provides a way to trace the correlation between different tasks, across threads and processes. Unlike sampling based profilers, TaskTracer can tell you where a task is dispatched from, what it's original source was, how long it spent in the event queue, and how long it spent on execution.

Source Events are usually some kinds of I/O events we're interested in, such as touch events, timer events, network events, etc. When a source event is created, TaskTracer records the entire chain of Tasks and nsRunnables as they are dispatched to different threads and processes. It records latency, execution time, etc. for each Task and nsRunnable that chains back to the original source event.

What is Isis?

Isis is a super cool front-end tool of parsing and presenting data from TaskTracecr.
