Kernel Tracing With LTTng On Ubuntu Maverick 88

francis-giraldeau writes "Linux Tracing Toolkit (LTTng) provides high-performance kernel tracing for Linux. This is the killer app for system level debugging and performance tuning. It's now easier than ever to install, with packages released for Ubuntu Maverick. The short introduction to kernel tracing shows how to interpret a simple kernel trace and relate it to strace. I would like to ask Slashdot readers what they would expect as features for a kernel tracing analysis tool, because I'm starting my PhD on this topic and looking for ideas. Also, I wonder why LTTng is not mainline yet. Will Linus Torvalds see the light in 2011?"

    Seriously? You're asking for a crowd-sourced original contribution to (I assume) Computer Science for your PhD? Are you going to defend "our" dissertation live on /. ?

    Yes, Linus will see the light in 2011. It will probably be in the form of light from a CFL, but it could be the light from sunrise. Heck, unlikely as it may be, it could even be when Melinda Gordon tells him to "go into the light". Anyway, he'll definitely see the light one way or another.
