Fedora Mini-conf - Session 4

Writing SystemTap Scripts

SystemTap provides a simple command-line interface and scripting language for writing instrumentation for a live running kernel. This talk will show how you can write !SystemTap scripts, and reuse bits of code by building libraries of tapset scripts. A tapset is a script that is designed for reuse by installation into a special or user-defined directory.
