DTrace for Linux

There are two ways to get DTrace for another operating system: you can try porting DTrace to the other system, or you can -- as Adam Leventhal describes -- use the new BrandZ framework to get that other system running under Solaris. Adam describes applying DTrace to a Linux binary -- top -- and using DTrace to find a (pretty serious) Linux-specific performance problem. Pretty eff'in cool...

As an additional bonus, BrandZ also provides ZFS for Linux without any porting!

That is pretty astounding! My small web hosting company has switched 100% to Solaris and the customers love it, but we do get the occasional Linux weenie :-) ... now I could potentially give them a Linux zone and the objection would disappear.
