Here is a new release of LTTng for the 2.6.26-rc9 kernel, which
- The tracepoints infrastructure.
- Architecture independent markers converted to tracepoints.
- Re-introduction of userspace tracing, only for x86 for now. Allows to
do boot-time tracing (such as tracing the init process). Adds 2 system
calls : sys_marker (marker registration) and sys_trace (tracing per
se). The type support is currently limited : strings are formatted in
userspace and sent to the kernel for logging under the event
"userspace_string". I am doing this simple implementation to get the
feature in until I have time to think more carefully about namespacing
issues, typing and 32/64 bits processes in 64 bits architectures.
Please consider this last feature experimental. Review and testing is
welcome. The userspace linker script and library needed to perform
userspace tracing, as well as some sample code and Makefile, are
available in the svn repository at
Ports of the linker script, kernel-api.h (which should be
per-architecture) and of markers-userspace-x86.patch to other
architectures are welcome.
As always, please follow the compatibility list and the quickstart guide
