topsyscall - top syscalls by syscall name. Uses DTrace.
topsyscall [-Cs] [interval [count]]
This program continually prints a report of the top system calls, and refreshes the display every 1 second or as specified at the command line.
Since this uses DTrace, only users with root privileges can run this command.
See the DTraceToolkit for further documentation under the Docs directory. The DTraceToolkit docs may include full worked examples with verbose descriptions explaining the output.
topsyscall will run until Ctrl-C is hit, or the specified interval is reached.
