Abstract
This scientific report provides a description of the concepts and technologies that were developed in the Poly-Tracing Project. The main product that was made available at the end of this four-year project is a new software tracer called Linux Trace Toolkit next generation (LTTng). LTTng actually represents the centre of gravity around which much more applied research and development took place in the project. As shown in this document, the technologies that were produced allow the exploitation of the LTTng tracer and its output for two main purposes: a- solving today’s increasingly complex software bugs and b- improving the detection of anomalies within live information systems. This new technology will enable the development of a set of new tools to help detect the presence of malware and malicious activity within information systems during operations.
