NAME
       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

SYNOPSIS
       dbus-monitor  [--system	|  --session  | --address ADDRESS] [--profile | --monitor] [watch
       expressions]

DESCRIPTION
       The dbus-monitor command is used to monitor messages going through a  D-Bus  message  bus.
       See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information about the big picture.

       There are two well-known message buses: the systemwide message bus (installed on many sys-
       tems as the "messagebus" service) and the per-user-login-session message bus (started each
       time  a	user logs in).	The --system and --session options direct dbus-monitor to monitor
       the system or session buses respectively.  If neither is specified, dbus-monitor  monitors
       the session bus.

       dbus-monitor  has two different output modes, the 'classic'-style monitoring mode and pro-
       filing mode. The profiling format is a compact format with a single line per  message  and
       microsecond-resolution  timing information. The --profile and --monitor options select the
       profiling and monitoring output format respectively. If neither is specified, dbus-monitor
       uses the monitoring output format.

       In order to get dbus-monitor to see the messages you are interested in, you should specify
       a set of watch expressions as you would expect to  be  passed  to  the  dbus_bus_add_match
       function.

       The  message  bus configuration may keep dbus-monitor from seeing all messages, especially
       if you run the monitor as a non-root user.

OPTIONS
       --system
	      Monitor the system message bus.

       --session
	      Monitor the session message bus.	(This is the default.)

       --address ADDRESS
	      Monitor an arbitrary message bus given at ADDRESS.

       --profile
	      Use the profiling output format.

       --monitor
	      Use the monitoring output format.  (This is the default.)

EXAMPLE
       Here is an example of using dbus-monitor to watch for the  gnome  typing  monitor  to  say
       things

	 dbus-monitor "type='signal',sender='org.gnome.TypingMonitor',interface='org.gnome.TypingMonitor'"

AUTHOR
       dbus-monitor  was written by Philip Blundell.  The profiling output mode was added by Olli
       Salli.
