Analyzing all Kinds of Traces with the TMF Viewer, Alexandre Montplaisir, Ericsson

Abstract

This talk will present the latest iteration of the Tracing and Monitoring Framework (TMF). TMF started as a collection of Eclipse plugins to analyze LTTng traces. Since then, it has evolved into a generic trace analysis framework, and can now even be installed as a stand-alone application based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform.

Recent improvements to be demoed:

  • Standalone RCP, making it much easier for non-Eclispse users to install and use
  • Automatic trace type detection on import
  • Call stack view, automatically available for LTTng-UST traces with function entry/exit tracepoints

As well as a preview of upcoming features:

  • Data-driven definition of trace types and views
  • Trace synchronization
  • Index on disk
