Open Source, Dtrace, and tuning

,----[ Quote ]
| And there’s a bottom line lesson too: open source coupled with expertise
| opens the door to increased performance and flexibility (customization) in
| meeting unusual requirements today in much the same way that cheaper memory
| did in the nineties.

The LXF Test: OpenSolaris 2008.05

| Why bother?
|
| Well, one good reason is "because playing with alternative OSes is fun"! More
| seriously: ZFS has some very good features, notably the concept of using
| pools rather than restricting filesystems to a particular physical device;
| and the snapshotting capabilities. I can also see the advantages of the SMF
| approach to service management - although after many years of dealing
| with /etc/init.d I fear it would take me a while to change my habits!

What Sun was trying to do with Open Solaris

,----[ Quote ]
| So that explains why it’s take three long years to try to get basic open
| source development tools (such as putting Open Solaris source code in a
| distributed SCM located outside of the Sun firewall) for Open Solaris. It was
| never was Sun’s intention to try to promote a kernel engineering community,
| or at least, it was certainly not a high priority for them to do so.
