NAME

       btrace - perform live tracing for block devices

SYNOPSIS

       btrace [-s] [-t] [-w N] [-n N] [-b N] [-r <dbg mnt>] [-a <trace>...] <dev>...

DESCRIPTION

       The  btrace  script provides a quick and easy way to do live tracing of block devices.  It
       calls blktrace on the  specified  devices  and  pipes  the  output  through  blkparse  for
       formatting.  See blktrace (8) for more in-depth information about how blktrace works.

OPTIONS

       -s Displays data sorted by program (see blkparse (1)).

       -t Displays time deltas per IO (see blkparse (1)).

       -w N Sets run time to the number of seconds specified (see blktrace (8)).

       -n N Specifies the number of buffers to use (see blktrace (8)).

       -b N Specifies buffer size for event extraction (scaled by 1024) (see blktrace (8)).

       -r <dbg mnt> Specifies the debugfs mountpoint.

       -a <trace>...  Adds mask to current filter (see blktrace (8)).

       <dev> Specifies the device to trace.

EXAMPLE

       Simply running

           % btrace /dev/sda

       will show a trace of the device /dev/sda.
