NAME

tep_set_flag, tep_clear_flag, tep_test_flag - Manage flags of trace event parser context.

SYNOPSIS

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

TEP_NSEC_OUTPUT,
TEP_DISABLE_SYS_PLUGINS,
TEP_DISABLE_PLUGINS }; void tep_set_flag(struct tep_handle *tep, enum tep_flag flag); void tep_clear_flag(struct tep_handle *tep, enum tep_flag flag); bool tep_test_flag(struct tep_handle *tep, enum tep_flag flag);

DESCRIPTION

Trace event parser context flags are defined in enum tep_flag:

TEP_NSEC_OUTPUT - print event’s timestamp in nano seconds, instead of micro seconds.
TEP_DISABLE_SYS_PLUGINS - disable plugins, located in system’s plugin

directory. This directory is defined at library compile
time, and usually depends on library installation
prefix: (install_preffix)/lib/traceevent/plugins TEP_DISABLE_PLUGINS - disable all library plugins:
- in system’s plugin directory
- in directory, defined by the environment variable TRACEEVENT_PLUGIN_DIR
- in user’s home directory, ~/.traceevent/plugins

Note: plugin related flags must me set before calling tep_load_plugins() API.

The tep_set_flag() function sets flag to tep context.

The tep_clear_flag() function clears flag from tep context.

The tep_test_flag() function tests if flag is set to tep context.

RETURN VALUE

tep_test_flag() function returns true if flag is set, false otherwise.

EXAMPLE

#include <event-parse.h>
...
struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
...
/* Print timestamps in nanoseconds */
tep_set_flag(tep,  TEP_NSEC_OUTPUT);
...
if (tep_test_flag(tep, TEP_NSEC_OUTPUT)) {

/* print timestamps in nanoseconds */ } else {
/* print timestamps in microseconds */ } ... /* Print timestamps in microseconds */ tep_clear_flag(tep, TEP_NSEC_OUTPUT); ...
