Definitive diagnostic data
To qualify as Definitive Diagnostic Data it must be possible to correlate the data with a user's experience of a problem instance, and for that reason they will typically be time stamped event information. Log and trace records are common sources of Definitive Diagnostic Data.
Generally, statistical data can't be used as it lacks the granularity necessary to directly associate it with a user's experience of a problem instance. However, it can be adapted by reducing the sample interval to a value approaching the response time of the system transaction being performed.
