BABELTRACE2-QUERY(1) Babeltrace 2 manual BABELTRACE2-QUERY(1)

babeltrace2-query - Query an object from a Babeltrace 2 component class

babeltrace2 [GENERAL OPTIONS] query [--params=PARAMS]
            COMP-CLS-TYPE.PLUGIN-NAME.COMP-CLS-NAME OBJECT

The query command queries the object named OBJECT from the component class named COMP-CLS-NAME of the type COMP-CLS-TYPE found in the Babeltrace 2 plugin named PLUGIN-NAME and prints the results.

See babeltrace2-intro(7) to learn more about the Babeltrace 2 project and its core concepts.

The available values for COMP-CLS-TYPE are:

source, src

Source component class.

filter, flt

Filter component class.

sink

Sink component class.

The exact object names and the parameters that a given component class expects are described in its own documentation. babeltrace2-help(1) can generally provide this information.

You can use the --params option to pass parameters to the component class’s query operation.

The output of the query command can look like YAML (see <https://yaml.org/>), but it’s not guaranteed to be YAML-compliant.

See “EXAMPLES” for usage examples.

You can use those options before the command name.

See babeltrace2(1) for more details.

-d, --debug

Legacy option: this is equivalent to --log-level=TRACE.

-l LVL, --log-level=LVL

Set the log level of all known Babeltrace 2 loggers to LVL.

--omit-home-plugin-path

Do not search for plugins in $HOME/.local/lib/babeltrace2/plugins.

--omit-system-plugin-path

Do not search for plugins in /usr/lib/babeltrace2/plugins.

--plugin-path=PATH[:PATH]...

Add PATH to the list of paths in which plugins can be found.

-v, --verbose

Legacy option: this is equivalent to --log-level=INFO.

-p PARAMS, --params=PARAMS
Set the query parameters to PARAMS.

The format of PARAMS is a comma-separated list of NAME=VALUE assignments:

NAME=VALUE[,NAME=VALUE]...

NAME

Parameter name (C identifier plus the :, ., and - characters).

VALUE

One of:

null, nul, NULL: null value.

true, TRUE, yes, YES: true boolean value.

false, FALSE, no, NO: false boolean value.

•Binary (0b prefix), octal (0 prefix), decimal, or hexadecimal (0x prefix) unsigned (with + prefix) or signed 64-bit integer.

•Double precision floating point number (scientific notation is accepted).

•Unquoted string with no special characters, and not matching any of the null and boolean value symbols above.

•Double-quoted string (accepts escape characters).

•Array, formatted as an opening [, a comma-separated list of VALUE, and a closing ].

•Map, formatted as an opening {, a comma-separated list of NAME=VALUE assignments, and a closing }.

You may put whitespaces around the individual = (assignment), , (separator), [ (array beginning), ] (array end), { (map beginning), and } (map end) characters.

Example:

--params='many=null, fresh=yes, condition=false, squirrel=-782329,
          play=+23, observe=3.14, simple=beef,
          needs-quotes="some string",
          escape.chars-are:allowed="a \" quote",
          things=[1, "hello", 2.71828],
          frog={slow=2, bath=[bike, 23], blind=NO}'


Important
Like in the example above, make sure to single-quote the whole argument when you run this command from a shell, as it can contain many special characters.

-h, --help
Show the command’s help and quit.

Example 1. Query the available tracing sessions of a local LTTng relay daemon.

$ babeltrace2 query src.ctf.lttng-live sessions \
                    --params='url="net://localhost"'

Example 2. Query the metadata info (includes the decoded plain text) of a CTF trace located on the local file system.

$ babeltrace2 query src.ctf.fs metadata-info \
                    --params='path="/path/to/trace"'

Example 3. Query the trace infos of a CTF trace located on the local file system.

$ babeltrace2 query src.ctf.fs babeltrace.trace-infos \
                    --params='path="/path/to/trace"'

Example 4. Query some object from a sink component class without parameters.

$ babeltrace2 query sink.my-plugin.my-sink some-object

BABELTRACE_EXEC_ON_ABORT=CMDLINE
Execute the command line CMDLINE, as parsed like a UNIX 98 shell, when any part of the Babeltrace 2 project unexpectedly aborts.

The application only aborts when the executed command returns, ignoring its exit status.

This environment variable is ignored when the application has the setuid or the setgid access right flag set.

BABELTRACE_TERM_COLOR=(AUTO | NEVER | ALWAYS)

Force the terminal color support for the babeltrace2(1) program and the project’s plugins.

The available values are:

AUTO

Only emit terminal color codes when the standard output and error streams are connected to a color-capable terminal.

NEVER

Never emit terminal color codes.

ALWAYS

Always emit terminal color codes.

BABELTRACE_TERM_COLOR_BRIGHT_MEANS_BOLD=0

Set to 0 to emit SGR (see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANSI_escape_code>) codes 90 to 97 for bright colors instead of bold (SGR code 1) and standard color codes (SGR codes 30 to 37).

BABELTRACE_PLUGIN_PATH=PATHS

Set the list of directories, in order, in which dynamic plugins can be found before other directories are considered to PATHS (colon-separated, or semicolon on Windows).

LIBBABELTRACE2_DISABLE_PYTHON_PLUGINS=1

Disable the loading of any Babeltrace 2 Python plugin.

LIBBABELTRACE2_INIT_LOG_LEVEL=LVL

Force the Babeltrace 2 library’s initial log level to be LVL.

If this environment variable is set, it overrides the log level set by the --log-level option for the Babeltrace 2 library logger.

The available values for LVL are:

NONE, N

Logging is disabled.

FATAL, F

Severe errors that lead the execution to abort immediately.

This level should be enabled in production.

ERROR, E

Errors that might still allow the execution to continue.

Usually, once one or more errors are reported at this level, the application, plugin, or library won’t perform any more useful task, but it should still exit cleanly.

This level should be enabled in production.

WARN, WARNING, W

Unexpected situations which still allow the execution to continue.

This level should be enabled in production.

INFO, I

Informational messages that highlight progress or important states of the application, plugins, or library.

This level can be enabled in production.

DEBUG, D

Debugging information, with a higher level of details than the TRACE level.

This level should NOT be enabled in production.

TRACE, T

Low-level debugging context information.

This level should NOT be enabled in production.

LIBBABELTRACE2_NO_DLCLOSE=1

Make the Babeltrace 2 library leave any dynamically loaded modules (plugins and plugin providers) open at exit. This can be useful for debugging purposes.

LIBBABELTRACE2_PLUGIN_PROVIDER_DIR=DIR

Set the directory from which the Babeltrace 2 library dynamically loads plugin provider shared objects to DIR.

If this environment variable is set, it overrides the default plugin provider directory.

BABELTRACE_PYTHON_BT2_LOG_LEVEL=LVL
Force the Babeltrace 2 Python bindings log level to be LVL.

If this environment variable is set, it overrides the log level set by the --log-level option for the Python bindings logger.

The available values for LVL are:

NONE, N

Logging is disabled.

FATAL, F

Severe errors that lead the execution to abort immediately.

This level should be enabled in production.

ERROR, E

Errors that might still allow the execution to continue.

Usually, once one or more errors are reported at this level, the application, plugin, or library won’t perform any more useful task, but it should still exit cleanly.

This level should be enabled in production.

WARN, WARNING, W

Unexpected situations which still allow the execution to continue.

This level should be enabled in production.

INFO, I

Informational messages that highlight progress or important states of the application, plugins, or library.

This level can be enabled in production.

DEBUG, D

Debugging information, with a higher level of details than the TRACE level.

This level should NOT be enabled in production.

TRACE, T

Low-level debugging context information.

This level should NOT be enabled in production.

BABELTRACE_CLI_LOG_LEVEL=LVL

This level should be enabled in production.

WARN, WARNING, W

Unexpected situations which still allow the execution to continue.

This level should be enabled in production.

INFO, I

Informational messages that highlight progress or important states of the application, plugins, or library.

Low-level debugging context information.

This level should NOT be enabled in production.

BABELTRACE_CLI_WARN_COMMAND_NAME_DIRECTORY_CLASH=0

Disable the warning message which babeltrace2-convert(1) prints when you convert a trace with a relative path that’s also the name of a babeltrace2 command.

BABELTRACE_DEBUG=1

Legacy variable: equivalent to setting the --log-level option to TRACE.

BABELTRACE_VERBOSE=1

Legacy variable: equivalent to setting the --log-level option to INFO.
