It is not immediately obvious how to use ktrace(1) to trace all running processes. This patch adds an example to the ktrace(1) man page.

     As root, enable system call tracing on all processes (since all processes  
     descend from init(8) ):                                                    
           # ktrace -t c -dp 1
