       uftrace-script - Run a script for recorded function trace


       uftrace script [options]


       This command runs a script for trace data recorded using the uftrace-record(1) command.


       -F FUNC, --filter=FUNC
              Set  filter  to  trace  selected functions only.  This option can be used more than
              once.  See `uftrace-replay' for details.

       -N FUNC, --notrace=FUNC
              Set filter not to trace selected functions  (or  the  functions  called  underneath
              them).  This option can be used more than once.  See `uftrace-replay' for details.

       -T TRG, --trigger=TRG
              Set  trigger  on  selected functions.  This option can be used more than once.  See
              `uftrace-replay' for details.

       -t TIME, --time-filter=TIME
              Do not show functions which run  under  the  time  threshold.   If  some  functions
              explicitly  have the `trace' trigger applied, those are always traced regardless of
              execution time.

              Only print functions called by the given threads.  To see the list  of  threads  in
              the  data  file, you can use uftrace report --threads or uftrace info.  This option
              can also be used more than once.

       -D DEPTH, --depth DEPTH
              Set trace limit in nesting level.

       -r RANGE, --time-range=RANGE
              Only  show  functions  executed  within  the  time  RANGE.   The   RANGE   can   be
              <start>~<stop>  (separated  by  “~”)  and one of <start> and <stop> can be omitted.
              The <start> and <stop> are timestamp or  elapsed  time  if  they  have  <time_unit>
              postfix,  for  example  `100us'.   The  timestamp or elapsed time can be shown with
              -f time or -f elapsed option respectively.

       -S SCRIPT_PATH, --script=SCRIPT_PATH
              Add a script to do additional work at the entry and exit of function.  The type  of
              script is detected by the postfix such as `.py' for python.

       --record COMMAND [command-options]
              Record a new trace before running a given script.

              Use  pattern  match  using  TYPE.   Possible  types are regex and glob.  Default is


       The uftrace tool supports  script  execution  for  each  function  entry  and  exit.   The
       supported script is only Python 2.7 as of now.

       The  user  can  write  four  functions.   `uftrace_entry'  and `uftrace_exit' are executed
       whenever each function is executed at the entry and  exit.   However  `uftrace_begin'  and
       `uftrace_end' are only executed once when the target program begins and ends.

              $ cat scripts/
              def uftrace_begin(ctx):
                  print("program begins...")

              def uftrace_entry(ctx):
                  func = ctx["name"]
                  print("entry : " + func + "()")

              def uftrace_exit(ctx):
                  func = ctx["name"]
                  print("exit  : " + func + "()")

              def uftrace_end():
                  print("program is finished")

       The `ctx' variable is a dictionary type that contains the below information.

              /* context information passed to script */
              script_context = {
                  int       tid;
                  int       depth;
                  long      timestamp;
                  long      duration;    # exit only
                  long      address;
                  string    name;
                  list      args;        # entry only (if available)
                  value     retval;      # exit  only (if available)

       The  above  script  can  be  executed  while  reading  the recorded data.  The usage is as

              $ uftrace record -F main tests/t-abc

              $ uftrace script -S scripts/
              program begins...
              entry : main()
              entry : a()
              entry : b()
              entry : c()
              entry : getpid()
              exit  : getpid()
              exit  : c()
              exit  : b()
              exit  : a()
              exit  : main()
              program is finished

       The below is another example that shows the different output compared to previous one  for
       the same recorded data.  The output looks similar to `uftrace replay' this time.

              $ uftrace script -S scripts/
              # DURATION    TID     FUNCTION
                          [25794] | main() {
                          [25794] |   a() {
                          [25794] |     b() {
                          [25794] |       c() {
                          [25794] |         getpid() {
                11.037 us [25794] |         } /* getpid */
                44.752 us [25794] |       } /* c */
                70.924 us [25794] |     } /* b */
                98.191 us [25794] |   } /* a */
               124.329 us [25794] | } /* main */

       The python script above can be modified to do more output customization.

       The  python  script  can  have  an  optional  “UFTRACE_FUNCS” list which can have name (or
       pattern depending on the –match option) of functions to run the  script.   If  it  exists,
       only  matched  functions  will run the script.  For example, if you add following lines to
       the script, it will run only for functions with a single letter name.

              $ echo 'UFTRACE_FUNCS = [ "^.$" ]' >>
              $ uftrace script -S
              # DURATION    TID     FUNCTION
                          [25794] |   a() {
                          [25794] |     b() {
                          [25794] |       c() {
                44.752 us [25794] |       } /* c */
                70.924 us [25794] |     } /* b */
                98.191 us [25794] |   } /* a */

       Also script can have options for record if it requires some form  of  data  (i.e. function
       argument  or return value).  A comment line started with “uftrace-option:” will provide (a
       part of) such options when recording.

              $ cat
              # uftrace-option: -A a@arg1 -R b@retval
              def uftrace_entry(ctx):
                  if "args" in ctx:
                      print(ctx["name"] + " has args")
              def uftrace_exit(ctx):
                  if "retval" in ctx:
                      print(ctx["name"] + " has retval")

              $ uftrace record -S abc
              a has args
              b has retval
              $ uftrace script -S
              a has args
              b has retval
