NAME         top

       valgrind-listener - listens on a socket for Valgrind commentary

SYNOPSIS         top

       valgrind-listener [options]

DESCRIPTION         top

       valgrind-listener accepts (multiple) connections from valgrind
       processes that use the --log-socket option on the specified port
       and copies the commentary it is sent to stdout.

OPTIONS         top

       -e --exit-at-zero
           When the number of connected processes falls back to zero,
           exit. Without this, it will run forever, that is, until you
           send it Control-C.

           By default, the listener can connect to up to 50 processes.
           Occasionally, that number is too small. Use this option to
           provide a different limit. E.g.  --max-connect=100.

           Changes the port it listens on from the default (1500). The
           specified port must be in the range 1024 to 65535. The same
           restriction applies to port numbers specified by a
           --log-socket to Valgrind itself.
