> The only tool for Linux that comes close is SystemTap, which has improved significantly in the last year, though it still remains out of the mainline kernel
IMHO, the whole SystemTap tool should not reside in mainline kernel. kprobes (the underlying kernel component for SystemTap) is part of mainline for ~2 years. Probably there are some portions (please state if known) which can go in mainline kernel . Or does this statement just indicate that SystemTap is not yet mainstream tool for Linux kernel community?
