= uftrace =
From [ the uftrace github page]. The uftrace tool is a tool that
traces and analyzes the execution of a program written in C/C++. It was heavily inspired by the ftrace
framework of the Linux kernel (especially function graph tracer) and supports userspace programs. It
supports various kind of commands and filters to help analyze the program execution and performance.
This extension supports UfTrace traces. It populates a call graph and therefore will pupulate most
of the views of the generic callstack analysis.
The parser handles native uftrace traces. In order to open one, select any file within a uftrace
== Correlate with other traces ==
Uftrace data can be correlated with the data from other traces, such as kernel traces. To correlate
traces, their host ID need to match, which means they were taken from the same machine. A file named
'hostid' can be added to the directory containing the uftrace data. This file has only one
line which is the host ID.
When correlating with traces that come from [LTTng]( for instance, the [time offset may
also need to be adjusted](,
since the time reference is not the same. The offset to put can be found, along with the LTTng's host ID
in the ``Properties`` view, when selecting the trace.
