OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for dbus-monitor (opensolaris section 1)

dbus-monitor(1) 			  User Commands 			  dbus-monitor(1)

NAME
       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       --monitor

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

       --profile

	   Use the profiling output format.

       --session

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

       --system

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

OPERANDS
       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.

       0	Application exited successfully

       >0	Application exited with failure
