For further information about systemtap, several sources are available.
||systemtap program usage, language summary|
||your systemtap installation paths|
||probes / probe aliases provided by built-in tapsets|
||a few basic example scripts|
||summaries of the probes and functions in each tapset|
||detailed descriptions of each probe|
||detailed descriptions of each function|
There is much more documentation and sample scripts included. You
may find them under
Then, there is the source code itself. Since systemtap is free
software, you should have available the entire source code. The
source files in the
tapset/ directory are also packaged along
with the systemtap binary. Since systemtap reads these files rather
than their documentation, they are the most reliable way to see what's
inside all the tapsets. Use the
-v (verbose) command line
option, several times if you like, to show inner workings.
Finally, there is the project web site
http://sourceware.org/systemtap/) with several articles,
an archived public mailing list for users and developers
firstname.lastname@example.org), IRC channels,
and a live GIT source repository. Come join us!
