The term process in this documentation implicitly includes thread. As soon as the Intel® Trace Analyzer loads a trace file that was generated running a multithreaded application, the GUI uses the term thread only if it is applicable. This is done to avoid confusing MPI application programmers who normally use the term process instead of thread.
