Using SystemTap

“While using SystemTap, I’ve been keeping notes of what I’ve
been doing, including what worked and what didn’t, and how I fixed
problems. It’s proven a handy reference.

In some recent threads about DTrace, people have asked how it
compares to SystemTap – with some commenting that they
haven’t had time to study either. I’ve been encouraged to post
about my experiences, which is easy to do from my notes. I could
(and probably should) get some of these into the SystemTap bug
database, too.
