bpftool-perf - Man Page

tool for inspection of perf related bpf prog attachments


bpftool [Options] perf COMMAND

Options := { { -j | --json } [{ -p | --pretty }] | { -d | --debug } }

COMMANDS := { show | list | help }

Perf Commands

bpftool perf { show | list }
bpftool perf help


bpftool perf { show | list }

List all raw_tracepoint, tracepoint, kprobe attachment in the system.

Output will start with process id and file descriptor in that process, followed by bpf program id, attachment information, and attachment point. The attachment point for raw_tracepoint/tracepoint is the trace probe name. The attachment point for k[ret]probe is either symbol name and offset, or a kernel virtual address. The attachment point for u[ret]probe is the file name and the file offset.

bpftool perf help

Print short help message.


-h,  --help

Print short help message (similar to bpftool help).

-V,  --version

Print bpftool's version number (similar to bpftool version), the number of the libbpf version in use, and optional features that were included when bpftool was compiled. Optional features include linking against LLVM or libbfd to provide the disassembler for JIT-ted programs (bpftool prog dump jited) and usage of BPF skeletons (some features like bpftool prog profile or showing pids associated to BPF objects may rely on it).

-j,  --json

Generate JSON output. For commands that cannot produce JSON, this option has no effect.

-p,  --pretty

Generate human-readable JSON output. Implies -j.

-d,  --debug

Print all logs available, even debug-level information. This includes logs from libbpf as well as from the verifier, when attempting to load programs.
