    Hey there! Of course. There are a few good examples here and here. Yes, they're specific tools (which I, by the way, do recommend), but you can have a look at the BPF code here as well.

    Thanks for the link :) this one seems pretty much like what I was looking for, with Vxlan encapsulation, will bother you if i face issues on running the script they have there. Looks like couple of years old since the last contribution to that git page: https://github.com/iovisor/bcc/tree/master/examples/networking/tunnel_monitor

    What we saw was stalling in the kernel run queue. One of the other people on our team did some debugging with eBPF. I think they may have used runqlen.py. But as soon as they evicted the one damaging pod from the machine, all the other workloads were no longer starved.

    We set out to look for an additional probe that can help us complete the picture. Even then, we find eBPF useful to explore the linux TCP stack. Tools like stacksnoop or stackcount can be used to understand the flow a network packet is going through when it’s processed and compare different functions to see how “noisy” each function is. Searching for data probing locations consists of a constant trade-off between being too nosy and being blind, and we’re looking for the sweet spot in the middle.

    If you're interested specifically in bash, you can look into bcc's bashreadline to output user commands. If you're interested in applying security policies to potential user commands, you can also take a look at Tracee although other open source solutions exist here as well.

    That's right! There's no "traditional" loops as programs have to be proved to terminate at some point.

    That being said, very recently support for bounded loops landed [0]. It's very exciting and useful, and I've seen it reduce verification times significantly, but we can't use this yet as it requires kernel 5.3 or greater, and we would like to support as many users as possible!

    Lots of his stuff, perf too actually, is built with ebpf, bcc, kprobes and uprobes.. there's lots of ready to run tools, but perhaps more valuably, code examples on how to build your own.
