bcc-tcprtt - Man Page

Trace TCP RTT of established connections. Uses Linux eBPF/bcc.

Synopsis

tcprtt [-h] [-T] [-D] [-m] [-i INTERVAL] [-d DURATION] [-b] [-B]

Description

This tool traces established connections RTT(round-trip time) to analyze the quality of network. This can be useful for general troubleshooting to distinguish the network latency is from user process or physical network.

Since this uses BPF, only the root user can use this tool.

Requirements

CONFIG_BPF and bcc.

Options

-h

Print usage message.

-T

Include a time column on output (HH:MM:SS).

-D

Show debug infomation of bpf text.

-m

Output histogram in milliseconds.

-i INTERVAL

Print output every interval seconds.

-d DURATION

Total duration of trace in seconds.

-p LPORT

Filter for local port.

-P RPORT

Filter for remote port.

-a LADDR

Filter for local address.

-A RADDR

Filter for remote address.

-b

Show sockets histogram by local address.

-B

Show sockets histogram by remote address.

Examples

Trace TCP RTT and print 1 second summaries, 10 times:

# tcprtt -i 1 -d 10

Summarize in millisecond, and timestamps:

# tcprtt -m -T

Only trace TCP RTT for remote address 192.168.1.100 and remote port 80:

# tcprtt -i 1 -d 10 -A 192.168.1.100 -P 80

Trace local port and show a breakdown of remote hosts RTT:

# tcprtt -i 3 --lport 80 --byraddr

Overhead

This traces the kernel tcp_rcv_established function and collects TCP RTT. The rate of this depends on your server application. If it is a web or proxy server accepting many tens of thousands of connections per second.
