kdump -- display kernel trace data
kdump [-dlNnRT] [-e emulation] [-f file] [-m maxdata] [-p pid] [-t trstr]
[-x | -X size] [file]
kdump displays the kernel trace files produced with ktrace(1) in human
readable format. The file ktrace.out in the current directory is dis-
played, unless either the -f option is used, or a file name is supplied
as the last argument.
The options are as follows:
-d Display all numbers in decimal.
If an emulation of a process is unknown, interpret system
call maps assuming the named emulation instead of default
-f file Display the specified file instead of ktrace.out.
-l Loop reading the trace file, once the end-of-file is reached,
waiting for more data.
-m maxdata Display at most maxdata bytes when decoding I/O.
-N Suppress system call number-to-name translation.
-n Suppress ad hoc translations. Normally kdump tries to decode
many system calls into a more human readable format. For
example, ioctl(2) values are replaced with the macro name and
errno values are replaced with the strerror(3) string. Sup-
pressing this feature yields a more consistent output format
and is easily amenable to further processing.
-p pid Only display records from the trace file that are for the
-R Display relative timestamps (time since previous entry).
-T Display absolute timestamps for each entry (seconds since
-t trstr Restrict display to the specified set of kernel trace points.
The default is to display everything in the file. See the -t
option of ktrace(1).
-x Display GIO data in hex and ascii instead of vis(3) format.
-X size Same as -x but display hex values by groups of size bytes.
Supported values are 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16.
The kdump command appears in 4.4BSD.
