Subject: [PATCH v16 04/18] trace-cmd: Add new library APIs for ftrace instances.
Date: Fri, 29 Nov 2019 12:17:19 +0200
Message-ID: <20191129101733.375808-5-tz.stoyanov@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20191129101733.375808-1-tz.stoyanov@gmail.com>

From: Tzvetomir Stoyanov <tstoyanov@vmware.com>

In order to reuse the code, the functionality related to
ftrace instances is moved from trace-cmd application to
libtracecmd. The following new library APIs are introduced:

library structure, representing a ftrace instance:
	struct tracecmd_instance {
        	char    *name;
	        char    *clock;
	};

APIs for creating and deleting ftrace instances:
	struct tracecmd_instance *tracecmd_create_instance(const char *name);
	void tracecmd_free_instance(struct tracecmd_instance *instance);
	int tracecmd_make_instance(struct tracecmd_instance *instance);
	void tracecmd_remove_instance(struct tracecmd_instance *instance);

APIs for reading and writing ftrace files, instance aware:
	char *tracecmd_get_instance_file(struct tracecmd_instance *instance, const char *file);
	char *tracecmd_get_instance_dir(struct tracecmd_instance *instance);
	int tracecmd_write_instance_file(struct tracecmd_instance *instance,
	                                 const char *file, const char *str,
        	                         const char *type);
	int tracecmd_write_file(const char *file, const char *str, const char *type);
	char *tracecmd_read_instance_file(struct tracecmd_instance *instance,
        	                          char *file, int *psize);

API for setting ftrace clock, instance aware:
	void tracecmd_set_clock(struct tracecmd_instance *instance, char **old_clock);
