Subject: Re: [lttng-dev] lttng-modules: block: invalid/unknown value for rwbs field
Date: Tue, 9 Mar 2021 09:34:09 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <a320badd-11ec-a937-ffdb-5ca1e0efcc38@efficios.com> (raw)

Hi,

You see this "Unknown value 33" because there are no label with the 
value 33 in the "block_rq_type" enumeration.

More specifically, you see the value "33" because it's the result of two 
OR-ed bitflags (RWBS_FLAG_WRITE | RWBS_FLAG_SYNC).

The type of the "rwbs" field in the event was changed from integer to 
enum in that commit [0]. That change was made to allow trace readers to 
print OR-ed values more nicely have all they need to do it. In fact, 
babeltrace2 implements such feature and you can try it with the 
following command:

$ babeltrace2 -c sink.text.pretty -p print-enum-flags=true <path-to-trace>

And would print that field as such: ( "RWBS_FLAG_WRITE" | 
"RWBS_FLAG_SYNC" : container = 33 )

I believe this feature is turn off in Babeltrace2 by default to be 
backward compatible with Babeltrace 1.5.

It's important to note that before that change in the kernel tracer 
Babeltrace would have simply printed "rwbs = 33" so you're not losing 
any information here.

So, try it out with Babeltrace2, it should work as you expect.


Cheers,

Francis
