stappaths - systemtap configurable file paths


This manual page was generated on 2018-04-25 for systemtap 3.1. The following section will list the main paths in systemtap that are important to know and may be required to reference. /usr/share/systemtap/tapset/ The directory for the standard probe-alias / function tapset library, unless over‐ ridden by the SYSTEMTAP_TAPSET environment variable or the XDG_DATA_DIRS environ‐ ment variable. These are described in the stapprobes(3stap), probe::*(3stap), and function::*(3stap) manual pages. /usr/share/systemtap/runtime/ The runtime sources, unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_RUNTIME environment vari‐ able. /usr/bin/staprun The auxiliary program supervising module loading, interaction, and unloading. /usr/lib/systemtap/stapio The auxiliary program for module input and output handling. /usr/include/sys/sdt.h Location of the <sys/sdt.h> headers. Kernel debuginfo Path: /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ The location of kernel debugging information when packaged into the kernel-debug‐ info RPM, unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_DEBUGINFO_PATH environment variable. The default value for this variable is +:.debug:/usr/lib/debug:build. elfutils searches vmlinux in this path and it interprets the path as a base directory of which various subdirectories will be searched for finding debuginfo for the kernel, kernel modules, and user-space binaries. By default, systemtap will also look for vmlinux in these locations: /boot/vmlinux-`uname -r` /lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux /lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/vmlinux /lib/modules/`uname -r`/.debug/vmlinux.debug /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug /var/cache/abrt-di/usr/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/ /var/cache/abrt-di/usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/`uname -r`/vmlinux.debug Corresponding source files are usually located under /usr/src/debug/. Further file information on user-space applications can be determined per-basis using rpm -ql <package>-debuginfo. For supported user-space applications information please visit the systemtap wiki. $HOME/.systemtap Systemtap data directory for cached systemtap files, unless overridden by the SYS‐ TEMTAP_DIR environment variable. /tmp/stapXXXXXX Temporary directory for systemtap files, including translated C code and kernel ob‐ ject. /lib/modules/VERSION/build The location of kernel module building infrastructure. /usr/share/doc/systemtap*/examples Examples with greater detail can be found here. Each example comes with a .txt or .meta file explaining what the example, sample or demo does and how it is ordinari‐ ly run. See also $SYSTEMTAP_DIR/ssl/server User's server-side SSL certificate database. If SYSTEMTAP_DIR is not set, the de‐ fault is $HOME/.systemtap. $SYSTEMTAP_DIR/ssl/client User's private client-side SSL certificate database. If SYSTEMTAP_DIR is not set, the default is $HOME/.systemtap. /etc/systemtap/ssl/client Global client-side SSL certificate database. /etc/systemtap/staprun/ staprun's trusted signer certificate database. /etc/sysconfig/stap-server/ stap-server service global configuration file. /etc/stap-server/conf.d/*.conf stap-server service configuration files for default servers. /var/run/stap-server/ stap-server service default location of status files for running servers. /var/log/stap-server/log stap-server service default log file.
