The method used to identify the zoneadmd freeze in Riak would be perfect for diagnosing x-runs in realtime audio applications. Here's hoping that awesome monitoring and visualization techniques developed for the cloud find their way into the hands of the jackd and ALSA developers.

The field of Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) is full of great techniques. See the root of the above guide.

What software is he using in the screenshots?

Software at Joyent called "Cloud Analytics" http://dtrace.org/blogs/dap/2011/03/01/welcome-to-cloud-anal...

Which, naturally, is built on DTrace. :)
