NAME

       function::probe_type - The low level probe handler type of the current probe.

SYNOPSIS

           probe_type:string()

ARGUMENTS

       None

DESCRIPTION

       Returns a short string describing the low level probe handler type for the current probe
       point. This is for informational purposes only. Depending on the low level probe handler
       different context functions can or cannot provide information about the current event (for
       example some probe handlers only trigger in user space and have no associated kernel
       context). High-level probes might map to the same or different low-level probes (depending
       on systemtap version and/or kernel used).
