NAME

       trace-cmd - interacts with Ftrace Linux kernel internal tracer

SYNOPSIS

       trace-cmd COMMAND [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       The trace-cmd(1) command interacts with the Ftrace tracer that is built
       inside the Linux kernel. It interfaces with the Ftrace specific files
       found in the debugfs file system under the tracing directory. A COMMAND
       must be specified to tell trace-cmd what to do.

COMMANDS

           record  - record a live trace and write a trace.dat file to the
                     local disk or to the network.

           report  - reads a trace.dat file and converts the binary data to a
                     ASCII text readable format.

           start   - start the tracing without recording to a trace.dat file.

           stop    - stop tracing (only disables recording, overhead of tracer
                     is still in effect)

           extract - extract the data from the kernel buffer and create a trace.dat
                     file.

           reset   - disables all tracing and gives back the system performance.
                     (clears all data from the kernel buffers)

           split   - splits a trace.dat file into smaller files.

           list    - list the available plugins or events that can be recorded.

           listen  - open up a port to listen for remote tracing connections.

OPTIONS

       *-h, --help
           Displace the help text.

       Other options see the man page for the corresponding command.
