Process flow graphs are generated from system trace data by obtaining raw distributed trace data for a system, aggregating the raw distributed trace data into aggregated distributed trace data, generating a plurality of process flow graphs from the aggregated distributed trace data, and storing the plurality of process flow graphs in a graphical store. A first critical path can be determined from the plurality of process flow graphs based on an infrastructure design for the system and a process flow graph corresponding to the first critical path provided for graphical display. Certain examples can determine a second critical path involving a selected element of the first critical path and provide the process flow graph for the second critical path for display. Some examples pre-process the aggregated distributed trace data to repair incorrect traces. Other examples merge included process flow graphs into longer graphs.
