More on bpftrace for MariaDB DBAs and Developers

Summary of recent experience


bpftrace is a relatively new open source tracer for modern Linux (kernels 5.x.y) that may help to troubleshoot performance issues in production as well as to get insights on how software really works. More exotic use cases for the tool, as well as few more advanced bpftrace-based scripts useful for MariaDB DBAs and developers are presented.

bpftrace is a relatively new open source tracer for modern Linux (kernels 5.x.y) that may help to troubleshoot performance issues in production as well as to get insights on how software really works. I use it for a couple of years and would like to present more details on how to do it efficiently, including but not limited to adding tracepoints to different lines of the code inside functions, suing bpftrace as a code coverage tool and tracing in Docker etc.
