stappaths - systemtap configurable file paths

 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page was generated on 2014-05-22 for systemtap 2.6. The following section will list the main paths in systemtap that are important to know and may be required to reference.
share/systemtap/tapset/
The directory for the standard probe-alias / function tapset library, unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_TAPSET environment variable or the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable. These are described in the stapprobes(3stap), probe::*(3stap), and function::*(3stap) manual pages.
share/systemtap/runtime/
The runtime sources, unless overridden by the SYSTEMTAP_RUNTIME environment variable.
bin/staprun
The auxiliary program supervising module loading, interaction, and unloading.
${exec_prefix}/libexec/systemtap/stapio
The auxiliary program for module input and output handling.
/usr/include/sys/sdt.h
Location of the <sys/sdt.h> headers.
Kernel debuginfo Path: /usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/
The location of kernel debugging information when packaged into the kernel-debuginfo 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 SYSTEMTAP_DIR environment variable.
/tmp/stapXXXXXX
Temporary directory for systemtap files, including translated C code and kernel object.
/lib/modules/VERSION/build
The location of kernel module building infrastructure.
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 ordinarily run.
$SYSTEMTAP_DIR/ssl/server
User's server-side SSL certificate database. If SYSTEMTAP_DIR is not set, the default 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.
${prefix}/etc/systemtap/ssl/client
Global client-side SSL certificate database.
${prefix}/etc/systemtap/staprun/
staprun's trusted signer certificate database.
${prefix}/etc/sysconfig/stap-server/
stap-server service global configuration file.
${prefix}/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.
