LOCKSTAT(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			      LOCKSTAT(8)

NAME
     lockstat -- display kernel locking statistics

SYNOPSIS
     lockstat [-ceflMmpstx] [-b nbuf] [-E event] [-F func] [-L lock] [-N nlist] [-o file]
	      [-T type] command ...

DESCRIPTION
     The lockstat command enables system wide tracing of kernel lock events, executes the speci-
     fied command, and when finished reports statistics to the user.

     Tracing may be ended early by sending SIGINT (Ctrl-C) to the process being executed by lock-
     stat.

     The lockstat pseudo-device driver must be present in the kernel, and the lockstat command
     may only be used by the root user.

     The options are as follows:

     -b nbuf	Adjust the number of trace buffers allocated by the kernel to nbuf.

     -c 	Report percentage of total events by count, and sort the output by number of
		events.  The default is to key on event timings.

     -E event	Limit tracing to one type of event.  Use the -e option to list valid events.

     -e 	List valid event types for the -E option and exit.

     -F func	Limit tracing to locking operations performed within the specified function.
		func must be the name of a valid function in the kernel.

     -f 	Trace only by calling functions; do not report on individual locks.

     -L lock	Limit tracing to one lock.  lock may either be the name of a lock object in the
		kernel, or a kernel virtual address.

     -l 	Trace only by lock; do not report on calling functions.

     -M 	Merge lock addresses within unique objects.

     -m 	Merge call sites within unique functions.

     -N nlist	Extract symbol information from the nlist file.

     -o file	Send output to the file named by file, instead of the standard output (the
		default).

     -p 	Show the average number of events and time spent per CPU.  The default is to show
		the total values.  May be used in conjunction with the -s option.

     -s 	Show the average number of events per second, and the average time spent per sec-
		ond.  The default is to show the total values.

     -T type	Limit tracing to one type of lock.  Use the -t option to list valid lock types.

     -t 	List valid lock types for the -T option and exit.

     -x 	Summarize events, and do not report on lock types.

DIAGNOSTICS
     lockstat: incompatible lockstat interface version

     The kernel device driver does not match the version of the lockstat command.

     lockstat: overflowed available kernel trace buffers

     Increase the number of buffers using the -b option.

     lockstat: ioctl: Invalid argument

     The number of trace buffers is outside the minimum and maximum bounds set by the kernel.

     The lockstat command appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
