Abstract
The Linux Trace Toolkit Next Generation (LTTng) software tracer was thoroughly documented from a user’s perspective. The behaviour of each command was tested for a wide range of input parameter values, installation scripts were written and tested, and a variety of demonstration use cases created and tested. A number of bugs were documented as a result (ranging from “simply broken” to “what exactly are we trying to do here?”) which are being addressed as time passes and the project keeps advancing in capability, reliability, and ease-of-use. Whereas the companion LTTng Quick Start Guide assumed the simplest installation and use scenario, the LTTng Comprehensive User’s Guide delves into the nitty-gritty of using LTTng in all sorts of ways, leaving no option undocumented and giving detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to instrument anything (applications, libraries, kernel modules, even the kernel itself) for use with LTTng.
