NAME

tep_data_type, tep_data_pid, tep_data_preempt_count, tep_data_flags - Extract common fields from a record.

SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>
enum trace_flag_type {

TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF,
TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPORT,
TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED,
TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ,
TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ, }; int tep_data_type(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec); int tep_data_pid(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec); int tep_data_preempt_count(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec); int tep_data_flags(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec);

DESCRIPTION

This set of functions can be used to extract common fields from a record.

The tep_data_type() function gets the event id from the record rec. It reads the "common_type" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_pid() function gets the process id from the record rec. It reads the "common_pid" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_preempt_count() function gets the preemption count from the record rec. It reads the "common_preempt_count" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_flags() function gets the latency flags from the record rec. It reads the "common_flags" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context. Supported latency flags are:


TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF, Interrupts are disabled.
TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPORT, Reading IRQ flag is not supported by the architecture.
TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED, Task needs rescheduling.
TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ, Hard IRQ is running.
TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ, Soft IRQ is running.

RETURN VALUE

The tep_data_type() function returns an integer, representing the event id.

The tep_data_pid() function returns an integer, representing the process id

The tep_data_preempt_count() function returns an integer, representing the preemption count.

The tep_data_flags() function returns an integer, representing the latency flags. Look at the trace_flag_type enum for supported flags.

All these functions in case of an error return a negative integer.

EXAMPLE

#include <event-parse.h>
...
struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
...
void process_record(struct tep_record *record)
{

int data;
data = tep_data_type(tep, record);
if (data >= 0) {
/* Got the ID of the event */
}
data = tep_data_pid(tep, record);
if (data >= 0) {
/* Got the process ID */
}
data = tep_data_preempt_count(tep, record);
if (data >= 0) {
/* Got the preemption count */
}
data = tep_data_flags(tep, record);
if (data >= 0) {
/* Got the latency flags */
} } ...
