       trace-cmd - interacts with Ftrace Linux kernel internal tracer


       trace-cmd COMMAND [OPTIONS]


       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.


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

           set     - set a ftrace configuration parameter.

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

           stream  - Start tracing and read the output directly

           profile - Start profiling and read the output directly

           hist    - show a histogram of the events.

           stat    - show tracing (ftrace) status of the running system

           options - list the plugin options that are available to *report*

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

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

           restart - restart tracing from a previous stop (only effects recording)

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

           show    - display the contents of one of the Ftrace Linux kernel tracing files

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

           clear   - clear the content of the Ftrace ring 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.

           agent   - listen on a vsocket for trace clients

           setup-guest - create FIFOs for tracing guest VMs

           restore - restore the data files of a crashed run of trace-cmd record

           snapshot- take snapshot of running trace

           stack   - run and display the stack tracer

           check-events - parse format strings for all trace events and return
                          whether all formats are parseable

           convert   - convert trace files

           dump    - read out the meta data from a trace file


       -h, --help
           Display the help text.

       Other options see the man page for the corresponding command.
