Chime: visualization for DTrace
I am on a quest to learn DTrace and apply it to my every day work. So I am learning D, which is easy, but learning about all the 42,780 (as of build 39) probes is a different story. One tool Chime, which is part of OpenSolaris, that I have come across really puts the results from DTrace to a nice graphic interface and makes it a little easier. It has all kinds of other cool features like the ability to record data from a run. It even has an interface to search though all of those probes. So if you are new to DTrace like me or just want to visualize your DTrace output, check out Chime.
