[RFC PATCH 0/8] tracing: probeevent: Improve fetcharg features

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



This series improves probeevent variable fetcharg framework,

- Rewrite fetcharg framework with fetch_insn, switch-case based
  instead of function pointer. (maybe good for retpoline)
- Add "symbol" type support, which shows symbol+offset instead of
  address value.
- Add "$argN" fetcharg, which fetches function parameters.
  (currently only for x86-64)
- Add array type support for basic types (except for string),
  which enables to get fixed length array from probeevents.

All ideas came from Steve's function event tracer. Thanks Steve!

I'll add string (pointer) array support and testcases for these
features in the next version.

Here are examples:

o 'symbol' type

 # echo 'p vfs_read $stack0:symbol' > kprobe_events 
 # echo 1 > events/kprobes/p_vfs_read_0/enable 
 # tail -n 3 trace
              sh-729   [007] ...2   105.753637: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=SyS_read+0x42/0x90
            tail-736   [000] ...2   105.754904: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=kernel_read+0x2c/0x40
            tail-736   [000] ...2   105.754929: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=kernel_read+0x2c/0x40

o $argN 

 # echo 'p vfs_read $arg0 $arg1 $arg2' > kprobe_events
 # echo 1 > events/kprobes/p_vfs_read_0/enable 
 # tail -n 3 trace
              sh-726   [007] ...2   134.288973: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffff88001d98ec00 arg2=0x7ffeb4330f79 arg3=0x1
            tail-731   [000] ...2   134.289987: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffff88001d9dd200 arg2=0xffff88001d8a0a00 arg3=0x80
            tail-731   [000] ...2   134.290016: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffff88001d9dd200 arg2=0xffff88001faf4a00 arg3=0x150

o Array type

 # echo 'p vfs_read +0($stack):x64 +0($stack):x8[8]' > kprobe_events 
 # echo 1 > events/kprobes/p_vfs_read_0/enable 
 # tail -n 3 trace
              sh-729   [007] ...2    91.701664: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffffffff811b1252 arg2={0x52,0x12,0x1b,0x81,0xff,0xff,0xff,0xff}
            tail-734   [000] ...2    91.702366: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffffffff811b0dec arg2={0xec,0xd,0x1b,0x81,0xff,0xff,0xff,0xff}
            tail-734   [000] ...2    91.702386: p_vfs_read_0: (vfs_read+0x0/0x130) arg1=0xffffffff811b0dec arg2={0xec,0xd,0x1b,0x81,0xff,0xff,0xff,0xff}
