Ftrace is the official tracer of the Linux kernel. This is an extremely powerful instrument, which allows you to shed light into every hidden corner of the kernel. The Ftrace data can be a valuable source of information when trying to study the performance of a system. On the other hand, reading the raw tracing data in a text format is hard and having a UI, which provides interactive visualisation and browsing inside this data can be extremely useful. This talk will present the new, completely redesigned KernelShark. Based on Qt, It is optimised for efficient processing of significantly larger amounts of trace data and will come with a reinforced analysis toolkit. The talk will also present our ongoing development, focused on instrumentation for visualisation of trace events across multiple VMs on the same host and the hypervisor itself.
