Introduction

The NetBeans DTrace GUI plug-in is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) that can be installed into the Sun Studio IDE, and NetBeans IDE. You can run D scripts from the GUI, even those that are embedded in shell scripts.

You can visualize the output of DTrace using Chime. Chime is a graphical tool for visualizing DTrace aggregations. Chime is fully integrated with NetBeans DTrace GUI Plug-in.

The NetBeans DTrace GUI plug-in is architected in such a way that you can easily extend and customize it.

The GUI package consists of two components: The NetBeans plug-in (includes Chime) and the DTraceScripts directory. The DTraceScripts directory contains several subdirectories. Each subdirectory contains several D scripts categorized mostly based on DTrace providers. Chime displays are included in the DTraceScripts directory.

NetBeans Dynamic Tracing (DTrace) software includes third-party technologies governed by the third-party license readme at http://wiki.netbeans.org/Third-Party_License_Readme.

dtrace source code

Below is the path to the Mercurial repository if you just want to browse the source code:
http://hg.netbeans.org/main/contrib/file/15b6c4f343f7/dtrace
Otherwise, you need to request a NetBeans developer account in order to clone the source tree.
See the website below on how to become a NetBeans developer:

Installation problems

Most likely you were using the NB 6.5m1. The version 0.4 of the DTrace GUI plugin was not included with that release. The new version of plugin is included with NB6.5beta and you should be able to download it from the Update Center.

The new plugin installs the DTraceScripts directory automatically into your $HOME directory. Please be sure to read "The Rules of Engagement" section of DTrace GUI documentation before installing the new plugin. For instance, you need to remove the old DTraceScripts directory from your $HOME directory before installing the new plugin.

Installation problems

It is not obvious how to install this plugin. I had an earlier version 0.2 installed in the development version of the Netbeas 6.5. Autoupdate did not pickup the latest update from any of the usual plugin sites. When I downloaded the NBM and tried to add it manually via the Downloaded tab nothing was being displayed there and 6.5 just ignored it. My guess is that the module descriptor is missing/corrupted.

Best regards,
