An Introduction To Linux Tracing And Its Concepts

Recorded May 6, 2021

Join us for An Introduction to Linux Tracing and its Concepts, with Elena Zannoni, Senior Director of Linux Engineering at Oracle.

After many years of development, Linux has a mature and capable tracing infrastructure that evolved from many separate tools and projects. This tutorial will introduce the building blocks that provide the foundation of tracing in Linux, such as kprobes, uprobes, BPF, ptrace. We also will cover how these concepts are used by tracing tools available for Linux today, followed by some tracing examples to tie it all together.

The session will begin with an overview by Elena Zannoni (45 minutes) and followed by Q&A.
