Operating System Level Trace Analysis for Automated Problem Identification

  title={Operating System Level Trace Analysis for Automated Problem Identification},
  author={Gabriel Matni and Michel Dagenais},
Performance bottlenecks, malicious activities, programming bugs and other kinds of problematic behavior could be accurately detected on production systems if the relevant events were being monitored. This could be achieved through kernel level tracing where every time a relevant event occurs, the information is analysed or saved in a trace file to be inspected during post-mortem analysis. While collecting the information from the kernel has a very low impact, the offline analysis is typically… CONTINUE READING
