The Solaris VMware images with Firefox DTrace bundled are available for download

The Solaris VMware images with Firefox DTrace bundled have been uploaded to the Mozilla community. For more information, you can check the Mozilla wiki page: http://wiki.mozilla.org/SolarisVM. Many thanks to Mozilla community on hosting the VMware images. That helps us a lot.

As the development of Mozilla DTrace, we found that it's really important to provide a pre-configured Solaris system for the Mozilla guys to have a try. By that way, we hope to get more feedback from the Mozilla community. For example, where should the user defined DTrace probes be inserted? What's the use cases from the community's point of view?

Some possible candidates:

1. Break down Tp times by modules. The probes can be inserted in some phases of the page load, such as:
\* loadURLStart/loadURLEnd
\* dataStreamStart/dataStreamEnd
\* parseHTMLStart/parseHTMLEnd
\* domConstructionStart/domConstructionEnd
\* rendertreeConstructionStart/rendertreeConstructionEnd

2. The statistics of Javascript usage in Web 2.0, specifically, in some Google applications.

Please feel free to give a shot. Any feedback or suggestions are welcome :-)

I may be a bit slow here, but what is the difference between the 4 Solaris downloads from the SolarisVM page?

Ah...they all together constitute the image since the entire Solaris image is ~3gb.

Tsuyoshi, why don't you try OpenSolaris 2008.11 (http://www.opensolaris.com/get/index.jsp) + VirtualBox (http://www.virtualbox.org/)?
