    Hi Once upon a time, like forever ago, stack traces were organized in a hierarchy, so that all stacktraces ending ending at a particular point was grouped together. You could drill down the tree to see how the stack ended were it did. Complete with totals along the way.. Now that was a killer feature, I sorely miss :-/ I guess it died, to simplify and speed up things, but it sure was a great feature.

    Hi Kasper That visualization "trick" was removed some time ago, mainly as you mention to simplify the understanding and to avoid taking the hit of always having to calculate this nesting hierarchy. You are the first to mention the change but I understand your concern. If exceptions reported are mostly similar (we typically see the first lines of the stacktrace being the same, then branching out to create multiple almost identical exceptions) the visualization you mention would greatly help in showing less data and visually grouping exceptions together. I've added a feature request to our backlog to bring this feature back. I don't think it'll come back as the default visualization but perhaps a "mode" you can turn to get this different perspective on your exceptions. Regards S?ren EQATEC Team
