ovs-parse-backtrace — parses ovs-appctl backtrace output


ovs-appctl backtrace | ovs-parse-backtrace [binary]

ovs-parse-backtrace [binary] < backtrace


In some configurations, many Open vSwitch daemons can produce a series of backtraces using the ovs-appctl backtrace command. Users can analyze these backtraces to figure out what the given Open vSwitch daemon may be spending most of its time doing. ovs-parse-backtrace makes this output easier to interpret.

The ovs-appctl backtrace output must be supplied on standard input. The binary that produced the output should be supplied as the sole non-option argument. For best results, the binary should have debug symbols.
