LTTng is an extremely efficient tracing technology that has been succesfully used to troubleshoot intricate kernel problems at Google, IBM, Autodesk, etc. Large parts of it are already integrated in the Linux code base.
This talk will present the features of the new Eclipse LTTng plug-in and what makes it so useful when troubleshooting hard problems. The following features will be demoed:
- Control of the LTTng tracer running on a target node (remote or local);
- Efficient retrieval and handling of Linux huge traces (>10GB);
- Traces synchronization for distributed, multi-processor, multi-core system;
- Visualization, correlation and analysis of large traces;
An interesting development is that the LTTng technology is now being extended to user space tracing so the existing analysis work can be leveraged for any application.
