Solaris 11 Dynamic Systems Analysis
(Kernel Statistics Framework (KSTATs) / Dynamic Tracing (DTrace))
Solaris Training Overview

The Solaris 11 Dynamic Systems Analysis course introduces participants to the new facilities: DTrace and KSTATS. Using these tools, a systems administrator / systems programmer / systems analyst is able to watch kernel and systems level activity as they are occurring. .

Systems: Solaris 11, SPARC or x86/x64 hardware platforms

Solaris Training Prerequisites

It is assumed that the participant has successfully completed the Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration course, or has equivalent system time as a user, and is comfortable with basic systems administration functions and scripting, preferably with either Korn shell, awk/nawk and Perl.

Solaris Training Course duration

This course normally requires three (3) days, approximately 60% lecture, and 40% lab time.

Solaris Training Course Objectives

On completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe system troubleshooting fundamentals
  • Understand the components in Dynamic Tracing (DTrace)
  • Learn the basics of the D scripting language
  • Write DTrace one-line and scripted procedures
  • Monitor system level activity
  • Look at the modules that comprise the Kernel Statics Framework
  • Write C programs to access the KSTATS cells
  • Build system monitors using KSTATS with shell and Perl scripts
