First thing's first, you're going to need a system with DTrace. This likely means Solaris (or one of its decedents), OS X, or a BSD variant. There doesn't appear to be Dtrace available for Linux :(
Secondly, you'll exposing a significant security volunterability if you change the binding port away from localhost. Please only do so if you're confident of your network.
Still with us? Good.
For this tutorial you'll also need:
node - http://nodejs.org/#download
npm - https://github.com/isaacs/npm
node-libdtrace - https://github.com/bcantrill/node-libdtrace
Socket.IO – “npm install socket.io”
express - npm install express
Once these are installed simply run heat tracer as root (dtrace requires root for it's kernelspace trapping goodness):
sudo node heat_tracer.js
That's it, browse to http://localhost/heat_tracer.html and enjoy looking at your syscall latency.
