TRACE-CMD-STACK(1)                                    TRACE-CMD-STACK(1)

NAME         top

       trace-cmd-stack - read, enable or disable Ftrace Linux kernel
       stack tracing.

SYNOPSIS         top

       trace-cmd stack

DESCRIPTION         top

       The trace-cmd(1) stack enables the Ftrace stack tracer within the
       kernel. The stack tracer enables the function tracer and at each
       function call within the kernel, the stack is checked. When a new
       maximum usage stack is discovered, it is recorded.

       When no option is used, the current stack is displayed.

       To enable the stack tracer, use the option --start, and to
       disable the stack tracer, use the option --stop. The output will
       be the maximum stack found since the start was enabled.

       Use --reset to reset the stack counter to zero.
