The KTAP scripting dynamic tracing tool for Linux has seen its second major release.
Released at the end of may was KTAP 0.1
to serve as a dynamic tracing tool for the Linux kernel
. Since then, KTAP has advanced a great deal and now we're up to version 0.2 of this tracing tool. KTAP 0.2 supports tracepoints, kprobe, uprobe, timer, function tracing, and other new functions. This tracing also now works on x86 / x86_64 / ARM / PowerPC and also with versions of the Linux 3.1 kernel and newer.
KTAP 0.2 features a number of script improvements including a tracing block syntax, function tracing, a unified perf callback mechanism, and a lot more.
For those interested in Linux kernel tracing, more details on KTAP 0.2 can be learned via the Linux kernel mailing list announcement
