Thanks for the quick response, appreciate it.

At a high level this is what I did.

   1. reboot
   2. login as sudo
   3. set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to right locations
   4. ldd of executable to show right library versions are picked up
   5. execute the workload by specifiy LD_PRELOAD env variable
   6. expect to see a trace file in my $HOME/ltt* directory

When I say *FAIL*, I mean that there was no trace file in my home directory
~/lttng*

I read - https://lttng.org/man/3/lttng-ust-cyg-profile/v2.12/
I didn't read - https://lttng.org/docs/v2.12/#doc-liblttng-ust-cyg-profile

I have not run any lttng commands besides what I already gave. If they are
needed, I don't know what they are.

I tried experimenting with lttng commands create and list. The command to
list "traceable" points returned an error as included below.

root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin# ls ~/ | grep -i ltt
root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin# lttng create
my-kernel-session --output=~/my-kernel-trace
Session my-kernel-session created.
Traces will be output to
/home/user1/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin/~/my-kernel-trace
root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin# *lttng list
--kerne*l
*Error: Unable to list kernel events: Kernel tracer not available*
root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin#


A grep for lttng related processes shows me a daemon service running.

root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin# ps -ef | grep ltt
root      1002     1  0 12:16 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/lttng-sessiond
root      1054  1002  0 12:16 ?        00:00:00 */usr/bin/lttng-sessiond*
root      3145  2861  0 12:51 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto ltt
root@RocrLnx23:~/git/compute/out/ubuntu-18.04/18.04/bin#


Regards,
Ramesh
