GlassFish 3.1.1 and DTrace - Byron's series

Byron Nevins, and engineering on the team, has started a series of blogs on DTrace support in GlassFish 3.1.1 when running on JDK 7.

The first post covers how to get started : what is DTrace, installing the glassfish-monitoring-dtrace package, enabling monitoring and running your first probes. The second post covers the use of DTrace on a simple GlassFish cluster.

Dtrace architecture

The documentation for this feature is here. Now of course DTrace is not available on all platforms but a fix found using it will most likely be applicable to all environments GlassFish 3.1.1 runs on.
