Abstract:	Numerous technologies exist for profiling and tracing
		live Linux systems - from the traditional and straight
		forward gProf and strace to the more elaborate

		have appeared that can already largely take the place of
		these traditional tools and have gained mainline
		acceptance in the Linux community - meaning that they
		will become more and more relevant in the future and are
		already being used to shed light on real world
		performance issues. 
		This talk presents an overview of a number of the more
		noteworthy instrumentation tools available for Linux and
		the technologies that they build upon. Some examples of
		using perf events to analyse a running system to help
		track down real world performance problems will be
