  // Go execution tracer.
  // The tracer captures a wide range of execution events like goroutine
  // creation/blocking/unblocking, syscall enter/exit/block, GC-related events,
  // changes of heap size, processor start/stop, etc and writes them to an io.Writer
  // in a compact form. A precise nanosecond-precision timestamp and a stack
  // trace is captured for most events. A trace can be analyzed later with
  // 'go tool trace' command.
