* tracing/events: don't say hi when loading the trace event sampleLi Zefan2009-05-061-4/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The sample is useful for testing, and I'm using it. But after loading the module, it keeps saying hi every 10 seconds, this may be disturbing. Also Steven said commenting out the "hi" helped in causing races. :) [ Impact: make testing a bit easier ] Signed-off-by: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Acked-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Acked-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> LKML-Reference: <4A00F6AD.2070008@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

* tracing: Documentation / sample code fixes for tracepointsJody McIntyre2009-03-241-12/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Fix the tracepoint documentation to refer to "tracepoint-sample" instead of "tracepoint-example" to match what actually exists; fix the directory, and clarify how to compile. Change every instance of "example" in the sample tracepoint code to "sample" for consistency.

* tracepoints: add DECLARE_TRACE() and DEFINE_TRACE()Mathieu Desnoyers2008-11-162-2/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Impact: API *CHANGE*. Must update all tracepoint users. Add DEFINE_TRACE() to tracepoints to let them declare the tracepoint structure in a single spot for all the kernel. It helps reducing memory consumption, especially when declaring a lot of tracepoints, e.g. for kmalloc tracing. *API CHANGE WARNING*: now, DECLARE_TRACE() must be used in headers for tracepoint declarations rather than DEFINE_TRACE(). This is the sane way to do it. The name previously used was misleading. Updates scheduler instrumentation to follow this API change.

* Linux Kernel Markers: support multiple probesMathieu Desnoyers2008-02-131-16/+9
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | RCU style multiple probes support for the Linux Kernel Markers. Common case (one probe) is still fast and does not require dynamic allocation or a supplementary pointer dereference on the fast path. - Move preempt disable from the marker site to the callback. Since we now have an internal callback, move the preempt disable/enable to the callback instead of the marker site. Since the callback change is done asynchronously (passing from a handler that supports arguments to a handler that does not setup the arguments is no arguments are passed), we can safely update it even if it is outside the preempt disable section. - Move probe arm to probe connection. Now, a connected probe is automatically armed. Remove MARK_MAX_FORMAT_LEN, unused. This patch modifies the Linux Kernel Markers API : it removes the probe "arm/disarm" and changes the probe function prototype : it now expects a va_list * instead of a "...". If we want to have more than one probe connected to a marker at a given time (LTTng, or blktrace, ssytemtap) then we need this patch. Without it, connecting a second probe handler to a marker will fail. It allow us, for instance, to do interesting combinations : Do standard tracing with LTTng and, eventually, to compute statistics with SystemTAP, or to have a special trigger on an event that would call a systemtap script which would stop flight recorder tracing.
