dtrace_kernel Privilege

The dtrace_kernel privilege permits the use of every provider except for the use of the pid and fasttrap providers on processes not owned by the user. This privilege also permits the use of all actions and variables except for kernel destructive actions (breakpoint, panic, chill). This privilege permits complete visibility into kernel and user state. The facilities enabled by the dtrace_user privilege are a strict subset of those enabled by dtrace_kernel.

All with above restrictions
All but destructive actions
Address Spaces

Note - All functionalities of DTrace are not available if you are running DTrace in a non-global zone. For more information, see Privileges in a Non-Global Zone in Oracle Solaris 11.1 Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.
