If you’re a system support staff member, system administrator, developer or anyone else who has heard about DTrace and is interested in learning more about it, you’re in luck. Max Bruning will be teaching a three day course that will introduce DTrace and teach common performance analysis techniques. You’ll quickly learn about DTrace and some practical methods for applying it.
Max will discuss the core features of DTrace that are available in many enterprise and cloud computing environments, and will teach from a Joyent SmartMachine, a restricted environment that provides these features. Max will simulate performance issues based on real-world cases for students to solve. This is a unique opportunity for a student to put the methodologies they’ve learned into practice and see how they work first-hand.
On completion of this course, students will be able to:
UNIX fundamentals: understand syscalls; strace/truss experience is ideal Programming experience: shell scripting is fine; awk is great
