UTRACE(2)			     BSD System Calls Manual				UTRACE(2)

NAME
     utrace -- insert user record in ktrace log

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/time.h>
     #include <sys/uio.h>
     #include <sys/ktrace.h>

     int
     utrace(const char *label, void *addr, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     Adds a record to the process trace with information supplied by user.  The record is identi-
     fied by label and contains len bytes from memory pointed to by addr.  This call only has an
     effect if the calling process is being traced.

RETURN VALUES
     Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned.  Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned
     and errno is set to indicate the error.

ERRORS
     [ENOSYS]		Currently running kernel was compiled without ktrace(2) support (option
			KTRACE).

     [EINVAL]		Specified data length len was bigger than KTR_USER_MAXLEN.

SEE ALSO
     kdump(1), ktrace(1), ktruss(1), fktrace(2), ktrace(2), options(4)

HISTORY
     The utrace() system call first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.  It was added to NetBSD in
     NetBSD 1.6.  The label argument is a NetBSD extension.
