Description

LSAC(v2)
SystemTap is a tracing and probing tool to analyze and monitor activities of the operating system, including the kernel. It provides a wide range of filtering and analysis options. The systemtap packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.8, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#751479) This update fixes also the following bug: * Prior to this update, updating the systemtap package on client machines could fail because the systemap-testsuite is not designed for these machines. To work around this problem, remove the systemtap-testsuite subpackage before upgrading the systemtap package on client machines. (BZ#843392) All users of systemtap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
