I've seen no effort to update the network-based scripts since they were first developed.
I've just pasted here part of the comment section from tcpsnoop:
# WARNING: This script may only work on Solaris 10 3/05, since it uses the
# fbt provider to trace the raw operation of a specific version of the kernel.
# In the future, a 'stable' network provider should exist which will allow
# this to be written for that and subsequent versions of the kernel. In the
# meantime, check for other versions of this script in the /Net directory,
# and read the Notes/ALLfbt_notes.txt for more background on fbt.
The stable provider referred to is in the works. You can read the projects notes here:
I did find an updated iosnoop called tcpsnoop_snv that runs in the /Net directory.
There are notes at http://wikis.sun.com/display/DTrace/tcp+Provider as well.
I wanted to confirm that tcpsnoop_snv is indeed what is needed for newer versions of Solaris.
Solaris 10 5/08 s10s_u5wos_10 SPARC
Might be nice if the naming/comments for tcpsnoop were updated somehow...
