Systrace for Linux

by Marius Aamodt Eriksen (

I am posting a development snapshot of systrace kernel portion for Linux;

  • Kernel patch version 1.5 for Linux 2.4.24 (2004-01-26) and Kernel patch version 1.5 for Linux 2.6.1 (2004-01-26).
    • If you do not run with devfs, you need to create the device with: mknod /dev/systrace c 10 226.
    • If the userland compile fails because linux/systrace.h can not be found, you did not apply the patch correctly. Copy linux/systrace.h from the kernel patch to /usr/include/linux/systrace.h.
  • There are some code cleanup issues that have taken place since this patch was created. A new patch containing these will appear soon.
  • Systrace is supported in the following Linux distributions:

This is the kernel portion of systrace. Do not forget to enable Systrace via make menuconfig. You also need to install the gtk frontend and systrace userland, too. See the main page.
