Thanks for the list!

I'd add Alan Maguire's previous 11 (yes eleven!) blog posts about the DTrace tcp provider, which is available in Oracle Solaris 11 (and was never available in any of the Solaris 10 releases). They are here: http://blogs.oracle.com/amaguire/ . This is an amazingly useful feature, for basic observability: eg, which IPs are connecting to this port; through to advanced observability: eg, how is TCP performing and where should I tune? Alan's previous 11 posts demonstrate this well.

I've also written a blog post about the DTrace syscall provider changes in Oracle Solaris 11, which people learning or using DTrace should be aware of (http://dtrace.org/blogs/brendan/2011/11/09/solaris-11-dtrace-syscall-provider-changes/).
