KernelShark is an Open Source front end GUI for Ftrace, the official tracer of the Linux kernel. It was started in 2009 by Steven Rostedt and written in GTK. It was Steven's "idle task" where he worked on it only when he had time. It was useful, but not fully featured. It has since been completely rewritten in Qt by Yordan Karadzhov, with the guidance from Steven. Now it is a fully functional tool, which is much faster and much more featureful than the original.
