Are you a system admin who likes to dig deep and find performance issues? Are you a system programmer who writes and debugs code every day? This session will help you learn about the next generation debugging/tracing tools and frameworks, mainly Perf and eBPF, and how you can benefit from using them for your daily work.

Since the complexity of systems is ever-growing, we need advanced tools to identify and troubleshoot problems quickly. The session will help you find out...
 * Hot functions in your application
 * Function call count and callchains
 * Argument and variable value at a particular line of code
 * Get these stats without re-compiling
 * And much more

We will also walk you through some hands-on exercises for a better understanding.
