Subject: [PATCH v15 00/13] Add VM kernel tracing over vsockets and FIFOs
Date: Tue,  8 Oct 2019 11:15:24 +0300
Message-ID: <20191008081537.11536-1-kaslevs@vmware.com> (raw)

This patchset adds support for tracing guest kernels to trace-cmd.

Changes in v14 and v15:
 - rebased on top of latest master
 - no changes in behavior

Changes in v13:
 - ignore SIGINT in recording processes
 - add more checks for memory allocation failures

Changes in v12:
 - fix patches' Signed-off-by tags

Changes in v11:
 - fix flushing tracing data bug when doing VM recording

Changes in v10:
 - add support for specifying VMware Workstation guests by name on the command line
 - add docstring for tracecmd_create_recorder_virt()
 - add a comment on why we need to poll() in direct_splice_data()

Changes in v9:
 - none

Changes in v8:
 - switched protocol message encoding of ports to text
 - switched ports data type to unsigned since vsockets port numbers can overflow int and be confused with errors codes by other code
 - added automatic naming for guests with no names (for VMware Workstation guests currently)
 - added --debug option to trace-cmd agent

Changes in v7:
 - fixed potential memory leak in add_arg()
 - call msg_free() in tracecmd_msg_recv_trace_req() eventhough we're stealing
   the message buffer
 - added is_guest and is_agent macros and use throughout tracecmd_record.c
   instead of testing instance->flags bits
 - avoid memory allocation in make_dir()

Changes in v6:
 - added specialized data transfer path over FIFOs making single splice() per
   iteration
 - made tracecmd_msg_recv_trace_req/tracecmd_msg_recv_trace_resp more defensive
   to invalid messages

Changes in v5:
 - add FIFOs transport for tracing data
 - fixed a bug in tracecmd_msg_wait_close

Changes in v4:
 - detect and use splice(2) on vsock sockets if possible
 - switch port numbers to unsigned int
 - trace-cmd record --date flag is now set for all guests if provided by the user
 - removed grow_cap and exponential buffer size growth

Changes in v3:
 - addressed Steven's feedback
 - detect and disable guest tracing if <linux/vm_sockets.h> is not available
 - the --date flag is now treated as global for all guest instances
 - fixed a bug that caused --date to be ignored for host tracing data when tracing guests

Changes in v2:
 - rebased on top of protocol V3
 - fixed system clock timestamps with the --date flag
