An Introduction to Linux Tracing and its Concepts
May 6 | 8:30 – 10:00 am PDT (UTC-7)
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 – an opportunity to both ask Elena questions and for group discussion (45 minutes).
Join us for a complimentary live mentoring session!
