trace-cmd-hist(1) [centos man page]

TRACE-CMD-HIST(1)														 TRACE-CMD-HIST(1)

NAME
trace-cmd-hist - show histogram of events in trace.dat file SYNOPSIS
trace-cmd hist [OPTIONS][input-file] DESCRIPTION
The trace-cmd(1) hist displays a histogram form from the trace.dat file. Instead of showing the events as they were ordered, it creates a histogram that can be displayed per task or for all tasks where the most common events appear first. It uses the function tracer and call stacks that it finds to try to put together a call graph of the events. OPTIONS
-i input-file By default, trace-cmd hist will read the file trace.dat. But the -i option open up the given input-file instead. Note, the input file may also be specified as the last item on the command line. -P To compact all events and show the call graphs by ignoring tasks and different PIDs, add the -P to do so. Instead of showing the task name, it will group all chains together and show "<all pids>". SEE ALSO

TRACE-CMD-EXTRACT(1)													      TRACE-CMD-EXTRACT(1)

NAME
trace-cmd-extract - extract out the data from the Ftrace Linux tracer. SYNOPSIS
trace-cmd extract [OPTIONS] DESCRIPTION
The trace-cmd(1) extract is usually used after trace-cmd-start(1) and trace-cmd-stop(1). It can be used after the Ftrace tracer has been started manually through the Ftrace pseudo file system. The extract command creates a trace.dat file that can be used by trace-cmd-report(1) to read from. It reads the kernel internal ring buffer to produce the trace.dat file. OPTIONS
-p plugin Although extract does not start any traces, some of the plugins require just reading the output in ASCII format. These are the latency tracers, since the latency tracers have a separate internal buffer. The plugin option is therefore only necessary for the wakeup, wakeup-rt, irqsoff, preemptoff and preemptirqsoff plugins. With out this option, the extract command will extract from the internal Ftrace buffers. -O option If a latency tracer is being extracted, and the -p option is used, then there are some Ftrace options that can change the format. This will update those options before extracting. To see the list of options see trace-cmd-list. To enable an option, write its name, to disable the option append the characters no to it. For example: noprint-parent will disable the print-parent option that prints the parent function in printing a function event. -o outputfile By default, the extract command will create a trace.dat file. This option will change where the file is written to. SEE ALSO
