The ramblings of a former Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist

sh DTrace provider diffs and x86 binary available

The title says it all. I’ve uploaded the diffs and an x86 sh binary to the “Providers for various shells” page. I’ll do up a SPARC binary if there is interest in it.

Note that the arguments for the entry probes for builtin, exec and function have changed. There is a link to the correct documentation on this page too.

Have fun playing folks and let me know if you find any bugs.

I would have had these up about 90 minutes ago, but my previous blog entry needed to be written.

  1. The really great thing having looked at the patch (and a testament to the DTrace dudes) about this is that it’s so surprisingly straightforward to add – very, very cool Alan, awesome work! Hopefully it’ll encourage others to have a try themselves.

  3. If you have the time, the SPARC offerings would be greatly appreciated.

  4. Interesting timing, I have just uploaded the sparc binary. Note that some major changes have also taken place. I’ll blog them shortly.
