Announcement: DTrace for Oracle Linux General Availability

Today we are announcing the general availability of DTrace for Oracle Linux. It is available to download from ULN for Oracle Linux Support customers. 

DTrace is a comprehensive dynamic tracing framework that was initially developed for the Oracle Solaris operating system, and is now available to Oracle Linux customers. DTrace is designed to give operational insights that allow users to tune and troubleshoot the operating system.

DTrace provides Oracle Linux developers with a tool to analyze performance, and increase observability into the systems they own to see how they work. DTrace enables higher quality applications development, reduced downtime, lower cost, and greater utilization of existing resources.

Key benefits and features of DTrace on Oracle Linux include:

• Designed to work on finding performance bottlenecks

• Dynamically enables the kernel with a number of probe points, improving ability to service software

• Enables maximum resource utilization and application performance

• Fast and easy to use, even on complex systems with multiple layers of software

If you already have Oracle Linux support, you can download DTrace from ULN channel.

We have a dedicated Forum for DTrace on Oracle Linux, to discuss your experience and questions.
