+     "SystemTap provides free software (GPL) infrastructure to simplify the
+gathering of information about the running Linux system. This assists
+diagnosis of a performance or functional problem. SystemTap eliminates the
+need for the developer to go through the tedious and disruptive
+instrument, recompile, install, and reboot sequence that may be otherwise
+required to collect data.
+SystemTap provides a simple command line interface and scripting language for
+writing instrumentation for a live running kernel plus user-space applications.
+We are publishing samples, as well as enlarging the internal \"tapset\" script
+library to aid reuse and abstraction.
+Among other tracing/probing tools, SystemTap is the tool of choice for complex
+tasks that may require live analysis, programmable on-line response, and
+whole-system symbolic access. SystemTap can also handle simple tracing jobs.")
