       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.
       See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information about the big picture.

       There are two well-known message buses: the systemwide message bus (installed on many sys-
       tems as the "messagebus" service) and the per-user-login-session message bus (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-monitor
       uses the monitoring output format.

       In order to get dbus-monitor to see 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

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

	      Monitor the system message bus.

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

	      Use the profiling output format.

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

       Here  is  an  example  of  using dbus-monitor to watch for the gnome typing monitor to say

	 dbus-monitor "type='signal',sender='org.gnome.TypingMonitor',interface='org.gnome.TypingMonitor'"

       dbus-monitor was written by Philip Blundell.  The profiling output mode was added by  Olli
