       oparchive - produce archive of oprofile data for offline analysis


       oparchive [ options ] [profile specification] -o [directory]


       The  oparchive  utility  is commonly used for collecting profile data on a "target" system
       for future offline  analysis  on  a  different  ("host")  machine.   oparchive  creates  a
       directory  populated  with  executables,  libraries,  debuginfo files, and oprofile sample
       files. This directory can be tar'ed up and moved to another machine to be analyzed without
       further  use  of the target machine. Using opreport and other post-profiling tools against
       archived  data  requires  the  use  of  the  archive:<archived-dir>   specification.   See
       oprofile(1)  for  how  to write profile specifications.  A complete description of offline
       analysis can be found in the chapter titled  Analyzing  profile  data  on  another  system
       (oparchive)  of  the  OProfile  user  manual.  (See  the user manual URL in the "SEE ALSO"
       section below.)


       --help / -? / --usage
              Show help message.

       --version / -v
              Show version.

       --verbose / -V [options]
              Give verbose debugging output.

              Use sample database from the specified directory dir_path instead  of  the  default
              location. If --session-dir is not specified, then oparchive will search for samples
              in <current_dir>/oprofile_data  first.  If  that  directory  does  not  exist,  the
              standard session-dir of /var/lib/oprofile is used.

       --image-path / -p [paths]
              Comma-separated list of additional paths to search for binaries.  This is needed to
              find modules in kernels 2.6 and upwards.

       --root / -R [path]
              A path to a filesystem to search for additional binaries.

       --output-directory / -o [directory]
              Output to the given directory. There is no default. This must be specified.

       --exclude-dependent / -x
              Do not include application-specific images for libraries, kernel  modules  and  the
              kernel. This option only makes sense if the profile session used --separate.

       --list-files / -l
              Only list the files that would be archived, don't copy them.


       No special environment variables are recognized by oparchive.


              The location of the generated sample files.
