KernelShark 1.0 has been released as the tool for visualizing Trace-cmd Linux kernel traces.

KernelShark is all about visualizations for Trace-cmd which wraps Ftrace for internal Linux kernel tracing to analyze what's going on within the kernel.

For powering all these visualizations, KernelShark was originally written using the GTK tool-kit but now has moved over to Qt5. Current maintainer Steven Rostedt notes that the new Qt'ified KernelShark is more extensible, faster, and also easier to use.
