DTrace for Oracle Linux news: new beta release and conference appearances

A new set of RPM packages of our port of DTrace for Linux has just been published on the Unbreakable Linux Network. This is another beta release of our ongoing development effort to bring the DTrace framework to Linux.

This release includes the following changes:

  • The packages are now based on the final public release of the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2 (2.6.39). The previous beta drop was based on a development version of the 2.6.39 kernel; there is no new functionality specific to DTrace in this release. The primary goal was to get the code base in sync with the released kernel version.
  • Based on the feedback we received from some users in how their applications interact with dtrace, libdtrace is now a shared library. However, the API/ABI is not fully stabilized yet and may be subject to change.
  • As a result of the ongoing QA testing, some test cases were reorganized into their own subdirectories, which allows running the test suite in a more fine-grained manner.

As reminder, we have a dedicated Forum for DTrace on Linux, to discuss your experiences with this release.

This week, the Linux DTrace team also attendeded the second dtrace.conf in San Francisco, to talk about their work. The sessions were streamed live and recordings are also available. You can watch Oracle's Kris Van Hees' talk below:

We would like to thank the dtrace.conf organizers for the speaking opportunity and for organizing this event!

This Wednesday (April 4th), Kris and Elena Zannoni also spoke on this topic at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit 2012 in San Francisco, CA. The slides are now available for download (PDF).

Linux Filesystem, Storage and Memory Summit

Chris Mason, Chuck Lever, Martin Petersen and Dan Magenheimer from the Oracle Linux engineering team attended the Linux Filesystem, Storage, and Memory Management Summit in San Francisco earlier this month.

Oracle is actively involved in several of the projects under discussion there and they participated in discussions involving the most pressing challenges facing Linux-based storage today. Topics ranged from getting Linux developers more involved in the hard drive industry to handling low-end flash cards to moving implementations of distributed and cluster file systems forward on Linux.

For a more detailed report on the summit, see the excellent coverage on LWN:
