What happened to root causes?

Until 2018, Plumbr referred both to bottlenecks and errors via a generic term “root cause”. We learned that the two concepts are different and representing them via the same entity/noun created confusion, so the root causes were retired and decoupled to errors representing the root causes for failures & bottlenecks, representing the reason why the end users faced slow applications.
