Thats sounds nice. You wrote "The goal of the PmcTools project is to
provide FreeBSD's developers and system administrators with
non-intrusive, low-overhead and innovative ways of measuring and
analysing system performance" your website. Have you ever measured the
performance impact of such tools?

I'm interested to run such tool on production machines in the future but
only if the performance impact isn't that high.
