[Ksummit-2008-discuss] DTrace

I went to a Postgresql conference a few weeks ago.  There was a lot of
buzz around DTrace.  Sun and a couple of other companies have put DTrace
hooks into postgres, so they now have some really useful canned queries.
If you're running Solaris or MacOS, of course.

So there was a lot of talk about switching away from Linux.  This can't
possibly be a good thing for us.  I don't personally know what the state
of our competing projects are, but clearly they haven't got their hooks
into postgres ... at least not upstream.

I don't think I'd be the right person to lead a discussion on this, but
maybe we can find someone to talk about it.

Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
"Bill, look, we understand that you're interested in selling us this
operating system, but compare it to ours.  We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
