Transmitting low delay, high quality video over the Internet is hard. The trade-off is normally between video quality and transmission delay (or latency). Internet video has up to now been segregated into two segments: video streaming and video calls.

Up until now, talking in-depth about userspace tracing was deliberately avoided because it merits special treatment, hence this part devoted to it. We'll now look at the why of it, and we'll examine eBPF user tracing in two categories: static and dynamic.
