babeltrace2-source.ctf.lttng-live - Babeltrace 2's LTTng live source component class
A Babeltrace 2 source.ctf.lttng-live message iterator connects to a local or remote LTTng (see <https://lttng.org/>) relay daemon, receives the streams of a specific tracing session, and emits corresponding messages. CTF streams over LTTng live (TCP) | | +--------------------+ | | src.ctf.lttng-live | '-->| | | out @--> Sorted messages of one +--------------------+ or more streams More information about LTTng live is available in the LTTng Documentation (see <https://lttng.org/docs/#doc-lttng-live>). See babeltrace2-intro(7) to learn more about the Babeltrace 2 project and its core concepts. A source.ctf.lttng-live component has a single output port: its message iterator muxes (sorts) the messages from the various CTF data streams internally. A source.ctf.lttng-live message iterator handles the messages of one, and only one LTTng tracing session. A single LTTng tracing session can contain one or more traces, depending on the active tracing domains and the configured user space buffering scheme. The component connects to an LTTng relay daemon using the inputs parameter. This is an array of exactly one string which is the URL of the LTTng relay daemon to connect to. By default, if the remote tracing session name does not exist, the message iterator returns "try again later". This default mode makes the message iterator never end: even if the remote tracing session is destroyed, the message iterator keeps on waiting for a tracing session with the same name to exist. You can change this behaviour with the session-not-found-action initialization parameter. Note As of this version, you can only create one message iterator per source.ctf.lttng-live component. This is because the LTTng live protocol accepts at most one client per tracing session per LTTng relay daemon.
inputs=URL [array of one string] Use URL to connect to the LTTng relay daemon. URL is an array of exactly one string of which the format is: net://RDHOST[:RDPORT]/host/TGTHOST/SESSION RDHOST LTTng relay daemon’s host name or IP address. RDPORT LTTng relay daemon’s listening port. If not specified, the component uses the default port (5344). TGTHOST Target’s host name or IP address. SESSION Name of the LTTng tracing session from which to receive data. session-not-found-action=(continue | fail | end) [optional string] When the message iterator does not find the specified remote tracing session (SESSION part of the inputs parameter), do one of: continue (default) Keep on trying, returning "try again later" to the downstream user until the tracing session exists. With this action, the message iterator never ends, as the LTTng live protocol cannot currently indicate that a tracing session will never exist. fail Fail. end End.

babeltrace.support-info See babeltrace2-query-babeltrace.support-info(7) to learn more about this query object. For a string input which honors the LTTng live URL format (see the inputs parameter), the result object is 0.75. sessions You can query the sessions object to get a list of available LTTng tracing sessions for a given LTTng relay daemon URL. Parameters: url=URL [string] Use URL to connect to the LTTng relay daemon. The format of URL is: net://RDHOST[:RDPORT] RDHOST LTTng relay daemon’s host name or IP address. RDPORT LTTng relay daemon’s listening port. If not specified, the query operation uses the default port (5344). Result object (array of maps, one element for each available tracing session): client-count [unsigned integer] Current number of LTTng live clients connected to the relay daemon to receive data from this tracing session. session-name [string] Tracing session’s name. stream-count [unsigned integer] Current number of CTF streams in this tracing sessions, including the metadata streams. target-hostname [string] Hostname of the tracing session. This is not necessarily the relay daemon’s hostname. timer-us [unsigned integer] Tracing session’s configured live timer’s period (µs) (see lttng-create(1)). url [string] URL to use as the first element of the inputs parameter to connect to the same LTTng relay daemon and receive data from this tracing session.
