Truss and the Matrix

Hokey as it may sound, I find that I am more focused when scanning truss output if I'm listening to Matrix Reloaded's instrumental tracks. Surely it has more to do with the fast paced rhythm than any supernatural ability to be one with machine code, but the parallels are there to be drawn.

Neo sees Agent Smith laying a trap

Hoffie sees a missing class file
That output is from running truss on the process ID of the webserver demon; webservd. # truss -p 25150
And of course a little editing in The GIMP which came packaged with my Java Desktop System.

The debugging above is from my current project to install Sun's Java Enterprise System stack to provide a Portal infrastructure. We're deploying it on a Solaris 10 whole root zone that was created from a minimized install intended to be internet facing. This will be the first use of zones in my group's internet presence. For this test deployment we are using using two smokin' fast v40z's.

I'm jacking back in, uh, I mean turn up the volume.

Comments:

I definatly understand what you mean, it seems like when I'm working on things like that music just makes it so much easier to work and concentrate on the task at hand. Don't really know why that is as I was told all my life that wasn't true and it would slow you down by breaking your concentration... Heh, my coworkers know differently though!

Jon Haslam and I used the xmatrix screensaver applet alongside green xterms running vmstat, mpstat and iostat during our DTrace demos at SUPerG 2004 and 2005! My words were "Neo sees the woman in red, but we don't see the thundering herd" (or something like that) Phil
