“Yumiko Sugita announced the 2.3.1 release of LKST, the Linux
Kernel State Tracer. The project page notes, the “Linux Kernel
State Tracer (LKST) records information as trace data about events
in the Linux Kernel. It records various events like process context
switch, send signal, exception, memory allocation, send packet, and
so on.” LKST is primarily a debugging tool that allows debugging on
a live system, and it can also be used for performance analysis. It
was originally announced in early 2002, with regular releases over
the past few years.
