[ANNOUNCE] New tools: lttngtrace and lttngreport

Hi everyone,

Recently, Linus came up with a request: a "super-strace" based on kernel
tracing. So I just came up with two bash scripts that perform exactly this within
LTTng: lttngtrace starts tracing, runs a program, stops tracing. lttngreport
generates a wakeup dependency report. I'm appending the script below (depends on
LTTng kernel tree, LTTng modules package, ltt-control and lttv).

It will report which interrupt/softirq and wakeup dependency chain caused each
wakeup, along with the duration within each step of the wakeup chain. This
includes I/O activity, traps, and syscalls.

Usage, e.g. to trace a git clone (must be run as root):

# lttngtrace git clone git://git.lttng.org/lttv.git
[...]

% lttngreport
[...]

I'll be happy to tweak the report as I receive feedback.

(bash scripts below, depends on current lttv git tree)

Thanks,

Mathieu

-------
lttngtrace:

#!/bin/sh

rm -fr /tmp/autotrace1
ltt-armall

lttctl -C -w /tmp/autotrace1 autotrace1

${*} &
CHILDPID=$!
wait

lttctl -D autotrace1
ltt-disarmall

echo ${CHILDPID} > /tmp/autotrace1-pid

------
lttngreport:

#!/bin/sh

CHILDPID=$(cat /tmp/autotrace1-pid)

lttv -m depanalysis -t /tmp/autotrace1 --dep-pid ${CHILDPID}
