10.1 Consumer Options
10.2 Modifying Options

To allow for customization, DTrace affords its consumers several important degrees of freedom. To minimize the likelihood of requiring specific tuning, DTrace is implemented using reasonable default values and flexible default policies. However, situations might arise that require tuning the behavior of DTrace on a consumer-by-consumer basis. This chapter describes the DTrace options and tunables, and the interfaces that you can use to modify them.
