NAME

       strace-log-merge - merge strace -ff -tt output

SYNOPSIS

       strace-log-merge STRACE_LOG

       strace-log-merge --help

DESCRIPTION

       strace-log-merge  merges  the  output of strace -ff -tt[t] command, prepending PID to each
       line and sorting the result using time stamp as a key.

OPTIONS

       --help Show program usage and exit.

       STRACE_LOG
              Output file name prefix of files produced by a strace -ff -tt[t] command.

EXIT STATUS

       0      Success

       Non-zero
              Error occurred: either no argument specified (in that case a usage is printed),  or
              something went wrong during the processing of STRACE_LOG.*  files.

USAGE EXAMPLE

       $ strace -o sleepy -ff -tt -e trace=execve,nanosleep \
               sh -c 'sleep 0.1 & sleep 0.2 & sleep 0.3'

NOTES

       strace-log-merge  does  not  work well with strace logs generated by strace -tt invocation
       that pass midnight, as those  lack  the  information  required  for  the  proper  sorting.
       Employing the -ttt option in the respective strace invocation should solve the problem.

BUGS

       strace-log-merge  does  not  perform  any  checks  whether  the files specified are in the
       correct format and implies that only files from a single strace session match STRACE_LOG.*
       glob pattern.

HISTORY

       The initial version of strace-log-merge was written by Denys Vlasenko in 2012.

REPORTING BUGS

       Problems  with  strace-log-merge  should  be  reported  to  the  strace  mailing  list  at
       <strace-devel@lists.strace.io>.
