OSX Tools: dtrace

DTrace is a performance analysis and troubleshooting tool that is included by default with various operating systems, including Solaris, Mac OS X and FreeBSD. A Linux port is in development.

Damit kann man eine Menge über das System erfahren und was denn gerade so alles aktiv ist.

Ein man -k dtrace gibt eine Liste aus, was es alles an Befehlen gibt:
bitesize.d(1m)           - analyse disk I/O size by process. Uses DTrace
