Indeed there is…

And… And… Aarghh! And I just turned down a Sparc
Ultra 5 solaris box because I didn’t have a use for it…

Well, don’t just stand there, let the other boot drop…

With all those gads of juicy data on your desk…

  • Tell us how to avoid screeds of object creation / destruction…
  • Give us some optimization tips from the dtrace fount.
  • Tell us where are the hidden bottle necks in the Interpreter…

Sigh! I wonder if I can eat humble pie and get that Ultra 5 I so
scorned back again…

I’m very interested in seeing how people put this to use and would
really
like to hear any “case studies” about how DTrace has helped you solve a
problem in your code or Ruby itself. Feel free to send any comments or
questions directly to me at scott at joyent dot com.

Thanks
