       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

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

       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

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

	      Monitor the system message bus.

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

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

	      Use the profiling output format.

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

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

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

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