Innovative OpenSolaris Features


In the previous chapters, we covered much of the basics of installing and configuring OpenSolaris and using its unique features to develop AMP stack-based web applications. But there is so much more to explore. In this chapter, we’ll introduce you to the DTrace observability tool for monitoring and discovering application and OS behavior. Then we’ll wrap up with a look at a selection of other OpenSolaris features such as the Distribution Constructor, Tracker, Device Driver Utility, SongBird, and some key educational resources.
