In PerfMon, what type of info does "event traces" provide?

In trying to get a solid grasp on PerfMon features, we were wondering what the best use of "event traces" would be and what is the info that it provides. Thanks.

Event traces uses the timer/information gathered from the Event Tracing for Windows subsystem (ETW). This is the same sort of information you'd get from taking traces using xperf or xbootmgr from the Windows Performance Toolkit. Not to the depth you'd get, but fairly close.
