Subject Re: dtrace in apache
Date Sat, 23 Aug 2008 04:27:19 GMT
Hi,
   I agree with Rahul. pid provider can be used to trace apr calls. Following
dscript traces apr calls in stock apache (without any probes)

pid*::apr_*:entry
/execname == "httpd"/
{
}

pid*::apr_*:return
/execname == "httpd"/
{
}
--------------------------------------
If apr calls would not have been started with prefix apr_ then putting a
specific probe might make more sense.

I have written a small blog for it.

Basant.
