06 Mar 2017 MONDAY SPOTLIGHT : Oracle Linux and DTrace [61396]
By Jeff Savit, March 7th, 2017

Jeff blogs, "DTrace is a dynamic tracing facility for performance analysis and troubleshooting that lets system administrators and developers examine running systems, including system calls and kernel actions. DTrace enables you to explore your system to understand how it works, track down performance problems, or locate the cause of errors. DTrace lets you create custom programs or quick "one liners" to dynamically instrument the system and provide immediate answers to arbitrary questions you can formulate using the DTrace D programming language.

DTrace is intended for production systems, and can be used to troubleshoot performance problems and errors by gathering and aggregating information about system behavior..."

22 Feb 2017 Learn How to Diagnose System & Application Problems! Take Oracle Solaris 11 Dynamic Tracing Training [60969]
By Diana.H. Gray, February 22nd, 2017

Diana blogs, "Oracle Solaris has a built in dynamic tracing resource known as DTrace.

For advanced system administrators, DTrace gives you an opportunity to:

  • Probe into the operating system
  • Identify performance issues
  • Determine unusual behavior in the software layers

DTrace is ideal for diagnosing system and application problems.

Taking Oracle Solaris 11 Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) training introduces you to Dynamic Tracing so you can learn how to use DTrace Toolkit Scripts and apply best practices.

Expert Oracle University instructors will guide you through interactive instruction and hands-on exercises..."

18 Dec 2016 At Long Last, Linux Gets Dynamic Tracing [58884]
The New Stack, December 9th, 2016

"When the Linux kernel version 4.9 will be released next week, it will come with the last pieces needed to offer to some long-awaited dynamic thread-tracing capabilities," reports Joab Jackson in The New Stack.

"As the keepers of monitoring and debugging software start using these new kernel calls, some of which have been added to the Linux kernel over the last two years, they will be able to offer much more nuanced, and easier to deploy, system performance tools, noted Brendan Gregg, a Netflix performance systems engineer and author of DTrace Tools, in a presentation at the USENIX LISA 2016 conference, taking place this week in Boston..."
