While eBPF was included in Linux kernel for quite a few years, we lacked a good "frontend" to complete Dtrace functionality in the Linux ecosystem. In this presentation, we will look into BPFTrace as a capable Dtrace replacement. We will also show how you can develop your own tools and utilities using BPFTrace as well as how you can use the tools from BPFTrace collection to get great insights into Linux Operations.
