TRACE-CMD-SPLIT(1)							       TRACE-CMD-SPLIT(1)

NAME
       trace-cmd-split - split a trace.dat file into smaller files

SYNOPSIS
       trace-cmd split [OPTIONS] [start-time [end-time]]

DESCRIPTION
       The trace-cmd(1) split is used to break up a trace.dat into small files. The start-time
       specifies where the new file will start at. Using trace-cmd-report(1) and copying the time
       stamp given at a particular event, can be used as input for either start-time or end-time.
       The split will stop creating files when it reaches an event after end-time. If only the
       end-time is needed, use 0.0 as the start-time.

       If start-time is left out, then the split will start at the beginning of the file. If
       end-time is left out, then split will continue to the end unless it meets one of the
       requirements specified by the options.

OPTIONS
       -i file
	   If this option is not specified, then the split command will look for the file named
	   trace.dat. This options will allow the reading of another file other than trace.dat.

       -o file
	   By default, the split command will use the input file name as a basis of where to
	   write the split files. The output file will be the input file with an attached '.#\'
	   to the end: trace.dat.1, trace.dat.2, etc.

	       This option will change the name of the base file used.

	       -o file	will create file.1, file.2, etc.

       -s seconds
	   This specifies how many seconds should be recorded before the new file should stop.

       -m milliseconds
	   This specifies how many milliseconds should be recorded before the new file should
	   stop.

       -u microseconds
	   This specifies how many microseconds should be recorded before the new file should
	   stop.

       -e events
	   This specifies how many events should be recorded before the new file should stop.

       -p pages
	   This specifies the number of pages that should be recorded before the new file should
	   stop.

	       Note: only one of *-p*, *-e*, *-u*, *-m*, *-s* may be specified at a time.

	       If *-p* is specified, then *-c* is automatically set.

       -r
	   This option causes the break up to repeat until end-time is reached (or end of the
	   input if end-time is not specified).

	       trace-cmd split -r -e 10000

	       This will break up trace.dat into several smaller files, each with at most
	       10,000 events in it.

       -c
	   This option causes the above break up to be per CPU.

	       trace-cmd split -c -p 10

	       This will create a file that has 10 pages per each CPU from the input.
