 Using DTrace to Profile and Debug C++

"A sample program CCtest was created to demonstrate an error common to C++ applications -- the memory leak. In many cases, a memory leak occurs when an object is created, but never destroyed, and such is the case with the program contained in this article. The examples in this article demonstrate the use of the DTrace feature in the Solaris 10 Operating System to diagnose C++ application errors. These examples are also used to compare DTrace with other application debugging tools, including Sun Studio 10 software and mdb in the Solaris 10 OS."
