How did Solaris 10 and Dtrace help Twitter improve performance?

For a great presentation on how Solaris 10 and DTrace helped Twitter improve their performance by 15% see Adam Levanthal's  most recent blog entry along with his presentation provided at OSCON.

 In this case, the application was written in Ruby and the DTrace provider in Ruby really helped.

Why should you care?

 If you are building a fast growing company (as Twitter is) it's inevitable that you will run into performance issues.  Solaris 10 and Dtrace provide the kind of visibility into your application's performance that can help you grow smoothly.
