Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris Performance, Observability and Debugging (The Abridged Version)
The observability toolbox in Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris is loaded with powerful tools and utilities for analyzing applications and the underlying system. Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), allows you to connect the dots between the process and thread-centric tools, and the system utilization tools, and get a complete picture on what your applications are doing, how they are interacting with the kernel, and to what extent they are consuming hardware resources (CPU, Mem, etc).
This two hour talk walks through the tools, utilities and methods for analyzing workloads on your Solaris systems.
