The topic aims to present various challenges we have ran into during the implementation of DTrace on top of Linux tracing facilities such as BPF. We hope to have open discussion on how we can get around some of these challenges because they are likely to be things other projects will run into as well. In addition, we want to share some of the workarounds we came up with, and hopefully spark discussion on how to propose fixes rather than depending on creative workarounds.
