The goal of the frysk project is to create an intelligent, distributed, always-on system monitoring and debugging tool that allows developers and system administrators to:
* monitor running processes and threads (including creation and destruction events)
* monitor the use of locking primitives
* expose deadlocks
* gather data
* debug any given process by choosing it from a list or allowing frysk to open a source code (or other) window on a process that is crashing or misbehaving
This updated version of frysk includes the following new utilities:
In addition, ftrace can now perform signal and function symbol tracing. In previous releases, ftrace could only perform system call tracing.
frysk was introduced in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and is still included in this release as a Technology Preview. For more information about frysk, refer to http://sources.redhat.com/frysk/.
