3. DTrace on Linux?

Theres a good article on dtrace and SystemTap and the Linux traceing toolkit here: DTrace for linux gets a mention.

This is DTrace for Linux: no kernel source is needed (except compilation headers). No patches are made to the kernel source. Its a drop in driver. Once the driver is loaded, you can run dtrace. I am not even asking Linus or any other kernel maintainer to ‘please add dtrace’ to the kernel. I dont care - - thats just me ! Maybe, one day, when I have documented ‘proc’, and ‘fcterm’, and decided I want to enjoy the politics of kernel maintenance, I might ask.
