A great usecase for the DTrace IP provider
Ben of cuddletech.com reported about the Dtrace IP provider as well. A commentator challenged him with “There is nothing unpleasant about the wonderfulness that is tcpdump! You’ll need to put a lot of work in to match tcpdump’s usefulness with Dtrace… “. And Ben answered to that … with two simple examples of the usefulness of the IP provider. He shows in his answer how you can correlate a sent package to a application on your system or how to print a complete stack trace that led to the transmission of a package.
