intel_aubdump - Man Page

Launch an application and capture rendering to an AUB


intel_aubdump [Options] -- COMMAND [ARGUMENTS]


Run COMMAND with ARGUMENTS and dump an AUB file that captures buffer contents and execution of the i915 GEM application.



Enable verbose mode.


Output a usage message and exit.

-o FILE--output=FILE

Write the trace output to the file FILE. Default is COMMAND.aub.


Override the PCI ID of the drm device. This is useful for getting an aub dump for a different generation of GPU. In this mode intel_aubdump will intercept but not forward the execbuffer2 ioctl, as that would typically cause a GPU hang.


intel_aubdump -v --output=stuff.aub -- glxgears -geometry 500x500

Launches glxgears with its -geometry option and enables aub dumping with the -v and --output=stuff.aub options.
