Static Linking

When you compile your program, you must not disable dynamic linking, which is done with the -dn and -Bstatic compiler options. If you try to collect data for a program that is entirely statically linked, the Collector prints an error message and does not collect data. The error occurs because the collector library, among others, is dynamically loaded when you run the Collector.

Do not statically link any of the system libraries. If you do, you might not be able to collect any kind of tracing data. Also, do not link to the Collector library,
