DTrace way of thinking


Today I had a discussion with my developers about adding some kind of debugging to one of our applications. We've agreed that instead of changing the application's code it would be easier and better to write simple DTrace script. That way application is simpler and work is done quicker without any need of recompiling application or adding new bugs. Just DTrace... :)

are you going to publish the code, or do you have a premade script in mind?

Actually it's not done yet (should be by tomorrow). But I won't publish it anyway as it won't make much sense - it will be too much application specific. But I promise I will publish some DTrace real life examples in a future.
