Tuning Cocoa applications using DTrace

Instruments icon

I've spent some time recently with DTrace, a performance analysis and debugging framework that ships on every Mac running Leopard. It's an extremely powerful framework that many Cocoa programmers disregard due to its apparent complexity.

I found that DTrace is actually reasonably easy to use, and have collected my experiences with it in a two-part article. The good people at MacResearch have published the two parts here and here. I invite you to check them out and hopefully learn a new way to tune your Mac or iPhone applications.

Great stuff on this site. Just getting started.
Just had to say heads up for the spam from "diz..."

Yes, some idiots at a Turkish spam site decided to target me a while back. I thought I'd dealt with most of their garbage, but it looks like I missed one.
