Just putting finishing touches on SOSUG presentation
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on May 26, 2005
I spent today at the iForce Centre in North Sydney working with some folks to benchmark a customer application.
As there were long periods of waiting for things to complete, I spent some time on the presentation that I'm going to give at the SOSUG meeting on Tuesday night (May 31, 6pm, Level 1, 33 Berry St, North Sydney).
I've decided to talk a little about SDT (Statically Defined Tracing) probes and how to use them. There'll be a couple of examples in the kernel (using stuff that I can talk about before the code release) and I've fudged up a pretty trivial user space example to give some idea of how to do them there (hint: they're slightly different). I hope folks will find it interesting.
Closer to the day (read, when I've finished the speaker notes ;) I'll put it up here for folks that are interested in looking at it.
I look forward to meeting some more people interested in OpenSolaris on Tuesday night. See you there.
