LTTNG-VIEW(1)                 LTTng Manual                 LTTNG-VIEW(1)

NAME         top

       lttng-view - View the traces of an LTTng tracing session

SYNOPSIS         top

       lttng [GENERAL OPTIONS] view [--viewer=CMD] [--trace-path=PATH | SESSION]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The lttng view command launches an external trace viewer to view
       the current trace of a tracing session.

       If SESSION is omitted, the viewer is launched for the current
       tracing session (see lttng-create(1) for more information about
       the current tracing session). Otherwise, it is launched for the
       existing tracing session named SESSION. lttng list outputs all
       the existing tracing sessions (see lttng-list(1)).

       By default, the babeltrace(1) trace viewer is launched. Another
       trace viewer command can be specified using the --viewer option.

       By default, the trace path of the chosen tracing session is given
       as the first positional argument to the trace viewer. This path
       can be overridden using the --trace-path option.

OPTIONS         top

       General options are described in lttng(1).

       -t PATH, --trace-path=PATH
           View trace at path PATH instead of using the chosen tracing
           session’s trace path.

       -e CMD, --viewer=CMD
           Use CMD as the trace viewer.

   Program information
       -h, --help
           Show command help.

           This option, like lttng-help(1), attempts to launch
           /usr/bin/man to view the command’s man page. The path to the
           man pager can be overridden by the LTTNG_MAN_BIN_PATH
           environment variable.

       --list-options
           List available command options.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES         top

       LTTNG_ABORT_ON_ERROR
           Set to 1 to abort the process after the first error is
           encountered.

       LTTNG_HOME
           Overrides the $HOME environment variable. Useful when the
           user running the commands has a non-writable home directory.

       LTTNG_MAN_BIN_PATH
           Absolute path to the man pager to use for viewing help
           information about LTTng commands (using lttng-help(1) or
           lttng COMMAND --help).

       LTTNG_SESSION_CONFIG_XSD_PATH
           Path in which the session.xsd session configuration XML
           schema may be found.

       LTTNG_SESSIOND_PATH
           Full session daemon binary path.

           The --sessiond-path option has precedence over this
           environment variable.

       Note that the lttng-create(1) command can spawn an LTTng session
       daemon automatically if none is running. See lttng-sessiond(8)
       for the environment variables influencing the execution of the
       session daemon.

FILES         top

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttngrc
           User LTTng runtime configuration.

           This is where the per-user current tracing session is stored
           between executions of lttng(1). The current tracing session
           can be set with lttng-set-session(1). See lttng-create(1) for
           more information about tracing sessions.

       $LTTNG_HOME/lttng-traces
           Default output directory of LTTng traces. This can be
           overridden with the --output option of the lttng-create(1)
           command.

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttng
           User LTTng runtime and configuration directory.

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttng/sessions
           Default location of saved user tracing sessions (see
           lttng-save(1) and lttng-load(1)).

       /usr/local/etc/lttng/sessions
           System-wide location of saved tracing sessions (see
           lttng-save(1) and lttng-load(1)).

           Note
           $LTTNG_HOME defaults to $HOME when not explicitly set.

EXIT STATUS         top

       0
           Success

       1
           Command error

       2
           Undefined command

       3
           Fatal error

       4
           Command warning (something went wrong during the command)
