SystemTap client/server tutorial

I just wrote a small tutorial about the client/server mode of SystemTap. It helps using SystemTap in production environment by using a dedicated server to compile all your SystemTap scripts.

The tutorial is not 100% completed, I will add the items in the TODO section as soon as I have some time to do so. If you spot any error or have any feedback, please feel free to comment here!

  1. Hey, thanks!

    You might want to review the systemtap 1.4 changes, with the integrated compile-server client (into the main stap binary). If the existing stap-server etc. man pages are inadequate, please feel free to propose a version of your tutorial for inclusion with the actual sources.

  2. Thanks for pointing this out to me, I will have a check at this new version as soon as I find some time.

    To be honest, my guide is more geared toward RHEL5 as this is what I use in production.
