[PATCH v2 00/17] tracing: probeevent: Improve fetcharg features

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



This is the 2nd version of the fetch-arg improvement series.
This includes variable changes on fetcharg framework like,

- Add fetcharg testcases (syntax, argN, symbol, string and array)
- Rewrite fetcharg framework with fetch_insn, switch-case based
  instead of function pointer.
- 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 (including string arrary :) ) ,
  which enables to get fixed length array from probeevents.

>From the v1, I've added many fixes and testcases. The 2 biggest
change are adding many testcases and support string array.
Note that the first 3 patches ([1/17] - [3/17]) can be applied
independently, since those are a bugfix and testcase for existing

The string array type (e.g. +0(%si):string[2]) is a bit different
from other array types (like x16[8] etc.). For other types,
<base-type>[1] is equal to <base-type> (e.g. +0(%di):x32[1] is same
as +0(%di):x32.) But "string[1]" is not equal to "string".
The string type itself represents "char array", but string array
type represents "char * array". So, for example, +0(%di):string[1]
is equal to +0(+0(%di)):string.

The 1st version is here:

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

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

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

o String Array type

 # echo "p create_trace_kprobe arg1=+0(%si):string[3]" > kprobe_events 
 # echo test1 test2 test3 >> kprobe_events 
sh: write error: Invalid argument
 # echo 'p vfs_read $stack' >> kprobe_events
