You will see all malloc that the app does for its lifetime since you LD_PRELOAD
the wrapper including any allocation lttng-ust does. Keep in mind that lttng-ust
is not magic, lttng-ust spun threads and do some allocations to do its job.

What outcome do you expect? We might be able to at least get you on the right
path. In other word, what is your end goal?

Cheers
