NAME

tep_parse_event, tep_parse_format - Parse the event format information

SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>
enum tep_errno tep_parse_event(struct tep_handle *tep, const char *buf, unsigned long size, const char *sys);
enum tep_errno tep_parse_format(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_event **eventp, const char *buf, unsigned long size, const char *sys);

DESCRIPTION

The tep_parse_event() function parses the event format and creates an event structure to quickly parse raw data for a given event. The tep argument is the trace event parser context. The created event structure is stored in the tep context. The buf argument is a buffer with size, where the event format data is. The event format data can be taken from tracefs/events/.../.../format files. The sys argument is the system of the event.

The tep_parse_format() function does the same as tep_parse_event(). The only difference is in the extra eventp argument, where the newly created event structure is returned.

RETURN VALUE

Both tep_parse_event() and tep_parse_format() functions return 0 on success, or TEP_ERRNO__... in case of an error.

EXAMPLE

#include <event-parse.h>
...
struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
...
char *buf;
int size;
struct tep_event *event = NULL;
buf = read_file("/sys/kernel/tracing/events/ftrace/print/format", &size);
if (tep_parse_event(tep, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {

/* Failed to parse the ftrace print format */ } if (tep_parse_format(tep, &event, buf, size, "ftrace") != 0) {
/* Failed to parse the ftrace print format */ } ...
