SYNOPSIS         top

       trace-cmd convert [OPTIONS] [output-file]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The trace-cmd(1) convert command converts trace file. It reads
       the input file and copies the data into an output file. The
       output file may be in different format, depending on the command
       line arguments. The default output is in version 7 and compressed
       (if compiled with compression support).

OPTIONS         top

       -i input-file
           By default, trace-cmd convert will read the file trace.dat.
           But the -i option open up the given input-file instead.

       -o out-file
           The name of the output file, this parameter is mandatory.

           or 7.

           Compression of the trace output file, one of these strings
           can be passed:

               'any'  - auto select the best available compression algorithm

               'none' - do not compress the trace file

               'name' - the name of the desired compression algorithms. Available algorithms can be listed with
