 -h, --help     show this help message and exit
 --traceid ID   specify the traceid of the trace records
 --pid PID      specify the pid of winbind client
 --breakdown    breakdown the traces into per traceid files

Synopsis

samba-log-parser {path} [--pid=PID] [--traceid=ID] [--breakdown] [--merge-by-timestamp] [--flow] [--flow-compact] [-h|--help]

Description

This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

The samba-log-parser program parses samba winbind logs.

Options

The following options are available to the samba-log-parser program.

--pid=PID

Display traces for winbind client with the matching PID.

--traceid=ID

Display traces with matching traceid debug header field.

--breakdown

Break down all traces to separate files in the current working directory. For each traceid, three files are created: traceid.full traceid.flow traceid.flowcompact

--merge-by-timestamp

Sort the trace lines according to the timestamp. Works with log files without traceid header field as well.

--flow

Display the request/sub-request flow.

--flow-compact

Display the request/sub-request flow without dcerpc call details.

Examples

Show the flow traces for trace id 1234 from log file log.winbind:

	# samba-log-parser --traceid 1234 --flow /var/log/samba/log.winbind

Show the full traces for winbind client with PID 999999 sorted using the timestamp for log files found in the samba log directory:

	# samba-log-parser --pid 999999 --merge-by-timestamp /var/log/samba

Break down the traces into separate files according to traceid sorted using the timestamp for log files found in the samba log directory:

	# samba-log-parser --breakdown --merge-by-timestamp /var/log/samba

Sort traces using the timestamp for log files found in the samba log directory. Traces do not need to contain the traceid header field.

	# samba-log-parser --merge-by-timestamp /var/log/samba

Version

This man page is part of version 4.20.0rc2 of the Samba suite.

Author

The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
