LinuxCon 2010: Efficient Trace Format for System-Wide Tracing

This talk presents the steps taken to move towards a consensus about a trace model and format to gather system-wide traces in a way that respects the embedded, telecommunication and high-performance computing industry requirements. It presents some use-cases gathered from the industry, the requirements imposed by the embedded, telecommunication, and high-performance computing Linux users and discusses the reaction of the kernel community towards these requirements. It finally presents a trace format proposal that aims at fulfilling these requirements.

This presentation has been done at LinuxCon 2010.
