Future Developments

LTT has been successfully used by many to understand the behavior of Linux and its real-time derivatives. At the time of this writing, LTT runs on both the i386 and the PowerPC platforms. In the future, other platforms will be supported and remote-tracing will be implemented. Also of interest to some would be the addition of support for operating systems such as Hurd and BSD. The ultimate purpose is to make LTT as pervasive as gdb, gprof and other such development tools.
