Subject: [PoC PATCH v2 00/21] Add trace file compression
Date: Mon, 10 May 2021 09:16:15 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210510061636.1794357-1-tz.stoyanov@gmail.com> (raw)

A new PoC implementation, adding a compression to trace file.
A basic infrastructure for compression support is added into the trace-cmd
library. The zlib is used for compression, but more libraries and algorithms
can be added. Only part of the trace file metadata is compressed: 
 - ftrace events format
 - format of recorded events
 - information about the mapping of function addresses to the function names
 - trace_printk() format strings
 - information of the mapping a PID to a process name
 - options

Note: not all trace-cmd commands are tested with these changes. These are
verified to work with compressed trace files:
 trace-cmd record
 trace-cmd report
 trace-cmd dump
 trace-cmd agent

Todo list, in order to have complete trace file compression:
 - Compress trace data.
 - Add support for more compression libraries.
 - Add new trace-cmd command to convert trace files from version 6 to
   version 7 and vise versa.
 - Test all trace-cmd commands with trace file v7.
 - Update trace-cmd documentation.

v2 changes:
 - Refactored compression APIs.
 - Moved the trace buffers description out of the trace options section.
 - Added compression of "options" section of the trace file.
 - Updated "trace-cmd list" to show available compression algorithms.
 - Tested with host-guest tracing.
 - Merged with the patchset that bumps the trace file version.

Tzvetomir Stoyanov (VMware) (21):
  trace-cmd library: Remove unused private APIs for creating trace files
  trace-cmd library: Remove unused API tracecmd_update_option
  trace-cmd: Check if file version is supported

  trace-cmd: Add APIs for library initialization and free
  trace-cmd library: Add support for compression algorithms
  trace-cmd list: Show supported compression algorithms
  trace-cmd library: Bump the trace file version to 7
  trace-cmd library: Compress part of the trace file
  trace-cmd library: Read compressed trace file
  trace-cmd library: Add new API to get compression of input handler
  trace-cmd library: Inherit compression algorithm from input file
  trace-cmd library: Extend the create file APIs to support different
    compression
  trace-cmd record: Add new parameter --compression
  trace-cmd dump: Add support for trace files version 7
  trace-cmd library: Add support for zlib compression library
  trace-cmd library: Hide the logic for updating buffer offset

  trace-cmd library: Track the offset in the option section in the trace
    file
  trace-cmd library: Add compression of the option section of the trace
    file
