OSX Tools: dtrace

Kommentieren Oct 24 2011


DTrace is a performance analysis and troubleshooting tool that is included by default with various operating systems, including Solaris, Mac OS X and FreeBSD. A Linux port is in development.

Damit kann man eine Menge ├╝ber das System erfahren und was denn gerade so alles aktiv ist.

Ein man -k dtrace gibt eine Liste aus, was es alles an Befehlen gibt:
