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.
       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
       function.

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

OPTIONS
       --system
	      Monitor the system message bus.

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

       --profile
	      Use the profiling output format.

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

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

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

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