Running DTrace in a Non-Global Zone

DTrace programs that require only the dtrace_proc and dtrace_user privileges can be run in a non-global zone. To add these privileges to the set of privileges available in the non-global zone, use the zonecfg limitpriv property. For instructions, see How to Use DTrace in a Non-Global Zone.

The providers supported through dtrace_proc are fasttrap and pid. The providers supported through dtrace_user are profile and syscall. DTrace providers and actions are limited in scope to the zone.

Also see Privileges in a Non-Global Zone for more information.
