fstrace_lslog - Displays information about a log
fstrace lslog [-set <set name>+] [-log <log name>]
fstrace lsl [-s <set name>+] [-log <log name>] [-lon]
The fstrace lslog command reports whether the "cmfx" log is available
for use. If the -long argument is included, the output reports the
log’s defined size, and whether that amount of space is currently
allocated in kernel memory or not.
To change the "cmfx" trace log’s size, use the fstrace setlog command.
To display or set whether space is allocated for it in kernel memory,
use the fstrace lsset or fstrace setset command to display or set the
state of the corresponding "cm" event set, respectively.
-set <set name>+
Names the event set for which to display information about the
corresponding trace log. The only acceptable value is "cm" (for
which the associated trace log is "cmfx"). Provide either this
argument or the -log argument, or omit both to display information
about the "cmfx" log by default.
-log <log name>
Names the trace log about which to report. The only acceptable
value is "cmfx". Provide either this argument or the -set argument,
or omit both to report on the "cmfx" log by default.
Reports the defined size of the log in kilobyte units and whether
that amount of space is currently allocated in kernel memory.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
By default, the fstrace lslog command displays only the name of the
available log, "cmfx", in the following format:
When the -long flag is included, the output also reports the defined
size of the log in kilobytes, and whether or not that amount of space
is currently allocated in kernel memory, in the following format:
cmfx : <log_size> kbytes (allocated | unallocated)
The "allocated" state indicates that the indicated number of kilobytes
is reserved for the "cmfx" trace log in kernel memory. The "cm" event
set’s state is either "active" or "inactive", as reported by the
fstrace lsset command, and set by the fstrace setset command’s -active
or -inactive flags respectively.
The "unallocated" state indicates that no kernel memory is currently
reserved for the "cmfx" trace log. The cm event set’s state is
"dormant", as reported by the fstrace lsset command and set by the
fstrace setset command’s -dormant flag. If the event set’s state is
later changed to active or inactive, the number of kilobytes indicated
as <log_size> are again allocated in kernel memory.
The following example uses the -long flag to display information about
the "cmfx" log:
# fstrace lslog -log cmfx -long
cmfx : 60 kbytes (allocated)
The issuer must be logged in as the local superuser "root".
