    • Moved to a lower-level approach bypassing bpftrace.
      • The bcc python package provides a means to explicitly divide the user-space and kernel-space parts of a BPF-based application; the two parts are implemented in Python and C respectively.
      • Gives us a couple ways around the 200-character limit on captured function arguments, e.g. the path to open calls.
      • More complex than bpftrace programs but far more flexible.
