       stappaths - systemtap configurable file paths

DESCRIPTION         top

       This manual page was generated for systemtap 4.6.  The following
       section will list the main paths in systemtap that are important
       to know and may be required to reference.

              The directory for the standard probe-alias / function
              tapset library, unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_TAPSET
              environment variable or the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment
              variable.  These are described in the stapprobes(3stap),
              probe::*(3stap), and function::*(3stap) manual pages.

              The runtime sources, unless overridden by the
              SYSTEMTAP_RUNTIME environment variable.

              The auxiliary program supervising module loading,
              interaction, and unloading.

              The default directory to search for *.stp files, for
              exporting to HTTP.

              The auxiliary program for module input and output

              Location of the <sys/sdt.h> headers.

       Kernel debuginfo Path: /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/
              The location of kernel debugging information when packaged
              into the kernel-debuginfo RPM, unless overridden by the
              SYSTEMTAP_DEBUGINFO_PATH environment variable.  The
              default value for this variable is
              +:.debug:/usr/lib/debug:build.  elfutils searches vmlinux
              in this path and it interprets the path as a base
              directory of which various subdirectories will be searched
              for finding debuginfo for the kernel, kernel modules, and
              user-space binaries.  By default, systemtap will also look
              for vmlinux in these locations:

              /boot/vmlinux-`uname -r`
              /lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux
              /lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug
              /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/vmlinux
              /lib/modules/`uname -r`/.debug/vmlinux.debug
              /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug
              /var/cache/abrt-di/usr/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/
              /var/cache/abrt-di/usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug

              Corresponding source files are usually located under
              /usr/src/debug/.  Further file information on user-space
              applications can be determined per-basis using rpm -ql
              <package>-debuginfo. For supported user-space applications
              information please visit the systemtap wiki.

              With elfutils version >0.178, systemtap can automatically
              download debugging information from debuginfod servers.
              You can try it by setting an environment variable or two:
              export DEBUGINFOD_URLS=
              export DEBUGINFOD_PROGRESS=1

              Systemtap data directory for cached systemtap files,
              unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_DIR environment

              Temporary directory for systemtap files, including
              translated C code and kernel object.

              The location of kernel module building infrastructure.

              Examples with greater detail can be found here. Each
              example comes with a .txt or .meta file explaining what
              the example, sample or demo does and how it is ordinarily
              run.  See also online at:

              User's server-side SSL certificate database. If
              SYSTEMTAP_DIR is not set, the default is $HOME/.systemtap.

              User's private client-side SSL certificate database. If
              SYSTEMTAP_DIR is not set, the default is $HOME/.systemtap.

              Global client-side SSL certificate database.

              staprun's trusted signer certificate database.

              stap-server service global configuration file.

              stap-exporter service global configuration file.

              stap-server service default location of status files for
              running servers.
