       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages


       dbus-monitor  [--system  |  --session  | --address ADDRESS] [--profile | --monitor] [watch


       The dbus-monitor command is used to monitor messages going through a  D-Bus  message  bus.
       See for more information about the big picture.

       There  are  two  well-known  message  buses: the systemwide message bus (installed on many
       systems as the "messagebus" service) and the per-user-login-session message  bus  (started
       each  time  a  user  logs  in).  The --system and --session options direct dbus-monitor to
       monitor the system or session buses respectively.  If neither is  specified,  dbus-monitor
       monitors the session bus.

       dbus-monitor  has  two  different  output  modes,  the 'classic'-style monitoring mode and
       profiling mode. The profiling format is a compact format with a single  line  per  message
       and  microsecond-resolution timing information. The --profile and --monitor options select
       the profiling  and  monitoring  output  format  respectively.  If  neither  is  specified,
       dbus-monitor uses the monitoring output format.

       In order to get dbus-monitor to see the messages you are interested in, you should specify
       a set of watch expressions as you would expect to  be  passed  to  the  dbus_bus_add_match

       The  message  bus configuration may keep dbus-monitor from seeing all messages, especially
       if you run the monitor as a non-root user.


              Monitor the system message bus.

              Monitor the session message bus.  (This is the default.)

       --address ADDRESS
              Monitor an arbitrary message bus given at ADDRESS.

              Use the profiling output format.

              Use the monitoring output format.  (This is the default.)


       Here is an example of using dbus-monitor to watch for the  gnome  typing  monitor  to  say

         dbus-monitor "type='signal',sender='org.gnome.TypingMonitor',interface='org.gnome.TypingMonitor'"


       dbus-monitor  was written by Philip Blundell.  The profiling output mode was added by Olli
