       xentrace - capture Xen trace buffer data


       xentrace [ OPTIONS ] [ FILE ]


       xentrace  is  used  to capture trace buffer data from Xen.  The data is
       output in the following binary format (host endian):

           CPU(uint) TSC(u64) EVENT(u32) D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 (all u32)

       Where CPU is the processor number, TSC is the record’s  timestamp  (the
       value  of the CPU cycle counter), EVENT is the event ID and D1...D5 are
       the trace data.

       Data is dumped onto the standard output (which must not be a TTY) or  a
       FILE specified on the command line.

       The  output  should be parsed using the tool xentrace_format, which can
       produce human-readable output in ASCII format.

       -t, --log-thresh=l
              set the threshold number, l, of new records required to  trigger
              a write of all new records to the output

       -s, --poll-sleep=p
              set  the time, p, (in milliseconds) to sleep between polling the
              buffers for new data.

       -c, --cpu-mask=c
              set cpu-mask

       -e, --evt-mask=e
              set evt-mask

       -?, --help
              Give this help list

              Give a short usage message

       -V, --version
              Print program version

   Event Classes (Masks)
       The following event classes (masks) can be used to  filter  the  events
       being gathered by xentrace:

               ID                  Description

               0x0001f000          TRC_GEN
               0x0002f000          TRC_SCHED
               0x0004f000          TRC_DOM0OP
               0x0008f000          TRC_HVM
               0x0010f000          TRC_MEM
               0xfffff000          TRC_ALL

   Event Subclasses (More Masks)
       The  following  event subclasses (masks) can also be used to filter the
       events being gathered by xentrace:

               ID                  Description

               0x00081000          TRC_HVM_ENTRYEXIT
               0x00082000          TRC_HVM_HANDLER

       xentrace collects the following events from the trace buffer:

               ID                Description
