lttng-gen-tp - Generate LTTng-UST tracepoint provider code
lttng-gen-tp [--verbose] [--output=FILE.c] [--output=FILE.h] [--output=FILE.o] TEMPLATE
The lttng-gen-tp tool simplifies the generation of LTTng-UST tracepoint provider files. It takes a simple template file, TEMPLATE, and generates the necessary C code to use the defined tracepoints in your application. See the Template file format section below for more information about the format of TEMPLATE. Currently, lttng-gen-tp can generate the .h, .c, and .o files associated with your tracepoint provider. The generated .h file can be included directly in your application. You can let lttng-gen-tp generate the .o file or compile the .c file yourself. See lttng-ust(3) for more information about compiling LTTng-UST tracepoint providers. By default, lttng-gen-tp generates the .h, .c, and .o files, their basename being the basename of TEMPLATE. You can generate one or more specific file types with the --output option, repeated if needed. Template file format The template file, which usually has the .tp extension, contains a list of TRACEPOINT_EVENT() definitions and other optional definition entries, like TRACEPOINT_LOGLEVEL(). See lttng-ust(3) for the complete list of available definitions. The TRACEPOINT_EVENT() definitions are written as you would write them in an LTTng-UST template provider header file. C comments are supported (/* */ and //), as well as lines starting with #. Note The provider name (the first argument of TRACEPOINT_EVENT()) must be the same in all the TRACEPOINT_EVENT() macros of TEMPLATE. Here’s an example: TRACEPOINT_EVENT( // Tracepoint provider name my_provider, // Tracepoint/event name my_event, // Tracepoint arguments (input) TP_ARGS(char *, text), // Tracepoint/event fields (output) TP_FIELDS( ctf_string(message, text) ) )
-o, --output=FILE Do not generate default files: generate FILE. The extension of FILE determines what is generated, amongst .h, .c, and .o. This option can be used more than one time to generate different file types. -v, --verbose Increase verbosity. -h, --help Show command help.
CC C compiler to use. Default: cc, then gcc if cc is not found. This option is only relevant when generating the .o file. CFLAGS Flags and options passed directly to the compiler ($CC). This option is only relevant when generating the .o file.
