uftrace-tui - (Interactive) Text-based User Interface
uftrace tui [options]
This command starts an interactive window on a terminal which can show same output of other commands like graph, report and info. Users can navigate the result easily with key presses. The command line options are used to limit the initial data loading.
- -f FIELD, --output-fields=FIELD
- Customize fields in the output. This option basically indicates graph fields. Possible values are total, self and addr. The default value is `total'. But if this option is used with –report option, this option indicates report fields. Possible values are total, total-avg, total-min, total-max, self, self-avg, self-min, self-max and call. The default value is `total,self,call'. Multiple fields can be set by using comma. If given field name starts with “+”, then it’ll be appended to the default fields. The special field `none' can be used (solely) to hide all fields. See uftrace-graph(1) or uftrace-report(1) for an explanation of fields.
- -F FUNC, --filter=FUNC
- Set filter to trace selected functions and their children functions. This option can be used more than once. See uftrace-replay(1) for an explanation of filters.
- -N FUNC, --notrace=FUNC
- Set filter not to trace selected functions and their children functions. This option can be used more than once. See uftrace-replay(1) for an explanation of filters.
- -C FUNC, --caller-filter=FUNC
- Set filter to trace callers of selected functions only. This option can be used more than once. See uftrace-replay(1) for an explanation of filters.
- -T TRG, --trigger=TRG
- Set trigger on selected functions. This option can be used more than once. See uftrace-replay(1) for an explanation of triggers.
- -D DEPTH, --depth DEPTH
- Set trace limit in nesting level.
- -t TIME, --time-filter=TIME
- Do not show functions which run under the time threshold. If some functions explicitly have the `trace' trigger applied, those are always traced regardless of execution time.
- Do not show library calls.
- Do not show any events. Implies --no-sched.
- Do not show schedule events.
- Use pattern match using TYPE. Possible types are regex and glob. Default is regex.
COMMON ANALYSIS OPTIONS¶
- -H FUNC, --hide=FUNC
- Set filter not to trace selected functions. It doesn’t affect their subtrees, but hides only the given functions. This option can be used more than once. See uftrace-replay(1) for an explanation of filters.
- Show all kernel functions called outside of user functions.
- Show kernel functions only without user functions.
- Show all (user) events outside of user functions.
- Only print functions called by the given tasks. To see the list of tasks in the data file, you can use uftrace report --task or uftrace info. This option can also be used more than once.
- Use demangled C++ symbol names for filters, triggers, arguments and/or return values. Possible values are “full”, “simple” and “no”. Default is “simple” which ignores function arguments and template parameters.
- -r RANGE, --time-range=RANGE
- Only show functions executed within the time RANGE. The RANGE can be <start>~<stop> (separated by “~”) and one of <start> and <stop> can be omitted. The <start> and <stop> are timestamp or elapsed time if they have <time_unit> postfix, for example `100us'. The timestamp or elapsed time can be shown with -f time or -f elapsed option respectively in uftrace replay(1).
If there’s only one session (the usual case) it’ll start with the graph mode to show a full (function) call graph of the session. Users can change to different mode by pressing some keys. The h key always is available for help.
The current line (marked with `>' below) is displayed with inverted color and arrow keys are used to move the cursor to a different location.
TOTAL TIME : FUNCTION > 7.548 us : (1) t-abc
1.811 us : ├─(1) __monstartup
1.266 us : ├─(1) __cxa_atexit
4.471 us : └─(1) main
3.743 us : (1) a
3.194 us : (1) b
2.454 us : (1) c
1.000 us : (1) getpid
uftrace graph: session 2a22812ebbd06f40 (/tmp/uftrace/tests/t-abc)
If there’re more than one session, it’ll start with session selection mode. The graph mode is separated for each session but report mode is merged for the whole sessions.
Key uftrace command > G call Graph for session #1: t-forkexec
call Graph for session #2: t-abc
R Report functions
I uftrace Info
h Help message
