General Unix Take a look at some systems that enable you to trace the execution of applications and work out what they are doing without having to make any modifications to the source code, and even without having to stop and restart the application. See how with tracing alone, you can find and diagnose problems with just a few commands.

The article states that truss can't trace user functions and only system calls. That's not true. See truss -u.
