       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

       dbus-monitor [--system | --session] [--profile | --monitor] [watch_expressions]

       The dbus-monitor command is used to monitor messages going through a D-Bus message bus.

       There are two standard message buses:

	 o  systemwide message bus - Disabled and not supported on Solaris, but installed on many
	    systems as the "messagebus" init service.

	 o  per-user-login-session message bus - Enabled and supported on  Solaris,  and  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-moni-
       tor uses the monitoring output format.

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

       See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information.

       The following options are supported:


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


	   Use the profiling output format.


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


	   Monitor  the  system  message  bus.	 The  system  bus  is disabled and unsupported on

       The following operands are supported:

       watch_expressions       In order to display 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_watch function.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure
