After taking a break in 2015, Tracing is back at Plumbers this year! Tracing is heavily used throughout the Linux ecosystem, and provides an essential method for extracting information about the underlying code that is running on the system. Although tracing is simple in concept, effective usage and implementation can be quite involved.
Topics proposed for this year’s event include new features in the BPF compiler collection, perf, and ftrace; visualization frameworks; large-scale tracing and distributed debugging; always-on analytics and monitoring; do-it-yourself tracing tools; and, last but not least, a kernel-tracing wishlist.
We hope to see you there!
