high-level tracing language for Linux eBPF

BPFtrace is a high-level tracing language for Linux enhanced Berkeley Packet Filter available in recent Linux kernels. BPFtrace uses LLVM as a backend to compile scripts to BPF-bytecode and makes use of BCC for interacting with the Linux BPF system, as well as existing Linux tracing capabilities: kernel dynamic tracing, user-level dynamic tracing and tracepoints.

Install from the command line using:

sudo snap install bpftrace
sudo snap connect bpftrace:system-trace
