NAME         top

       oparchive - produce archive of oprofile data for offline analysis

SYNOPSIS         top

       oparchive [ options ] [profile specification] -o [directory]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The oparchive utility is commonly used for collecting profile
       data on a "target" system for future offline analysis on a
       different ("host") machine.  oparchive creates a directory
       populated with executables, libraries, debuginfo files, and
       oprofile sample files. This directory can be tar'ed up and moved
       to another machine to be analyzed without further use of the
       target machine. Using opreport and other post-profiling tools
       against archived data requires the use of the archive:<archived-
       dir> specification. See oprofile(1) for how to write profile
       specifications.  A complete description of offline analysis can
       be found in the chapter titled Analyzing profile data on another
       system (oparchive) of the OProfile user manual. (See the user
       manual URL in the "SEE ALSO" section below.)

OPTIONS         top

       --help / -? / --usage
              Show help message.

       --version / -v
              Show version.

       --verbose / -V [options]
              Give verbose debugging output.

              Use sample database from the specified directory dir_path
              instead of the default location. If --session-dir is not
              specified, then oparchive will search for samples in
              <current_dir>/oprofile_data first. If that directory does
              not exist, the standard session-dir of /var/lib/oprofile
              is used.

       --image-path / -p [paths]
              Comma-separated list of additional paths to search for
              binaries.  This is needed to find modules in kernels 2.6
              and upwards.

       --root / -R [path]
              A path to a filesystem to search for additional binaries.

       --output-directory / -o [directory]
              Output to the given directory. There is no default. This
              must be specified.

       --exclude-dependent / -x
              Do not include application-specific images for libraries,
              kernel modules and the kernel. This option only makes
              sense if the profile session used --separate.

       --list-files / -l
              Only list the files that would be archived, don't copy
