Hello Computing Performance,
Live from OSCON, the excellent tutorial Angelo Rajadurai is giving
on Dtrace. I brought the Mac just to be able to try it on a platform
other than Solaris (we are on EC2 with the Solaris instances).
My best Dtrace story so far is impressing a VP who needed to debug an
access problem on his iTunes - I whipped a Dtrace one-liner, found
file that was causing the access problem in a whiff. Earned brownie
points in the process :) It would be so much more handy if I could
it on machines other than Solaris and Mac only...
PS: And it would be also nice if SystemTap, Dtrace and VMware
used the same syntax... kinda tiresome to have to learn a new syntax
for every Wiki^HTracing tool...
