NAME

       stapprobes.process - systemtap process probe points

DESCRIPTION

       This  family  of  probe points is used to probe the process activities.
       It contains the following probe points:

       process.create

              Fires whenever a new process is successfully created, either  as
              a  result  of  one of the fork syscall variants, or a new kernel
              thread.

              Arguments:

              task
                a handle to the newly created process

              new_pid
                pid of the newly created process

       process.start

              Fires immediately before a new process begins execution.

              Arguments:

              N/A

       process.exec

              Fires whenever a process attempts to exec to a new program

              Arguments:

              filename
                the path to the new executable

       process.exec_complete

              Fires at the completion of an exec call

              Arguments:

              errno
                the error number resulting from the exec

              success
                a boolean indicating whether the exec was successful

       process.exit

              Fires when a process terminates. This will always be followed by
              a  process.release,  though  the  latter  may  be delayed if the
              process waits in a zombie state.

              Arguments:

              code
                the exit code of the process

       process.release

              Fires when a process is released from the  kernel.  This  always
              follows a process.exit, though it may be delayed somewhat if the
              process waits in a zombie state.

              Arguments:

              task
                a task handle to the process being released

              pid
                pid of the process being released
