Basically, perf_tools (ftrace+perf_events) and the Super Saiyan form of BPF reach near-parity with DTrace, but for Linux. Not even bad.
Hmm...was gonna say the Pyra wouldn't need it on grounds that it's not a server, but improving the performance of PyraOS isn't something to swipe off the table at all. Solus does it, albeit with PTS/OpenBenchmarking. Would getting this far into analyzing systems performance just to eek more performance out of a CPU-board many are already dying to switch from be worth it? Well...maybe. There's no guarantee we'll ever get an upgrade, and optimization will always be the magic word.
In any case, having a powerful tool to help find performance fixes is welcome.
