Linux port of DTrace has been moving for some time now.
I just tried the latest bits from
ftp://crisp.dynalias.com/pub/release/website/dtrace and the initial
impression is we got really cool stuff (in the making here).
Besides, GCC, Kernel headers, you will need the following stuffs to
compile and load the DTrace kernel module:
* libelf-dev: Working with 'elf' files
* zlib libraries: working with the zlib files
* bison, flex
Once you have got them, extract the sources and do:
1. make all
2. sudo make install
3. sudo make load
If you do not see any error message, then the DTrace kernel module
'dtracedrv' has been correctly insrted.dtrace -l should display a long
list of the currently available probes.
