DTrace is wonderfully usable by Joe random admin and is generic enough to stop blooming of specialised tracing frameworks. Sure, latency top is cool, powertop is cool, usbmon is cool, blktrace is cool, but each of them needs its own hooks in kernel. On Solaris, powertop is implemented on top of DTrace, without modifing kernel.
