Chris Jones:
Tracing Silex from PHP to the OS with DTrace
November 06, 2013 @ 12:31:23

Continuing on with his look at using DTrace in with PHP, Chris Jones has a new post in the series showing how to add traces to Silex-based applications, including sample output.

In this blog post I show the full stack tracing of Brendan Gregg's php_syscolors.d script in the DTrace Toolkit. The Toolkit contains a dozen very useful PHP DTrace scripts and many more scripts for other languages and the OS. For this example, I'll trace the PHP micro framework Silex, which was the topic of the second of two talks by Dustin Whittle at a recent SF PHP Meetup. His slides are at Silex: From Micro to Full Stack.

He includes a brief guide to getting the DTrace support up and running based on instructions in a previous post based on some pre-build Oracle linux packages. He links to the latest DTrace Toolkit and the downloads page to get the latest version of Silex. He sets up a super-basic Silex application (one route, "hello") and shows how to run the DTrace against it. His sample output shows both the PHP files being called and the functions/methods called inside them resulting in an output over a thousand lines long.
