Update version to 0.16
[ust.git] / TODO
1 - remove libustconsumers dependency on libustsnprintf (usterr_signal_safe.h)
2 - correctly destroy buffers at trace destroy
3 - add multi-threaded test program
4 - add dlopen() based test program
5 - add automatic valgrind test of libust
6 - fix FIXME's in the code
7 - support multiple simultaneous traces
8 - add compilation tests
9 - fix the case where a lib is unloaded while markers are being connected with the auto probe connector. the marker mutex needs to be held to prevend the lib from being unloaded at that time. also, the library unregister function in marker.c should remove the markers from the hash table and call synchronize_rcu before returning
10 - add option to usttrace to select subbuffer size/count
11 - add option to see subbuffer size and count (need to test it)
12 - performance testing tool (in progress by Douglas Santos)
13 - profile with oprofile or similar to check for perf bottlenecks
14 - improve support for combined kernel/userspace tracing
15 - document API
16 - make sure the proper structures are cacheline aligned, and test performance, including multi-threaded
17 - fix header/lib priority problem at compilation
18 - port changes from recent versions of lttng kernel
19 - make cli interface for flight recorder
20 - save_registers: save them only when the marker is active (complicated because we need to know their value at the address that is put in struct marker)
21 - make streaming work, including periodical flush
22 - make a system (signal-based?) that allow the listener thread to not be started initially
23 - ust-consumerd should work as a pool of threads
24 - support more than one marker with the same channel and name on the same line?
25 - make a mode where the listener thread can poll buffers to check if they are ready to be collected
26 This is to guarantee there will never be a system call in the tracing path. Currently there is a system
27 call when the buffer is full to notify the listener it can be collected.
28 - In early tracing mode, the only channels that can be used reliably are "metadata" and "ust". The "usttrace" tool always uses early tracing and is hence subject to this limitation. Traces setup with the "ustctl" tool ("manual mode") are not subject to this limitation and can contain channels that have any name. Also, when loading a library with dlopen(), in order for markers in the library to generate events in the trace, these markers must be in the same channel as an event that was in the executable or its dynamically linked libraries that were loaded at start time. If using early tracing, only the "ust" channel can be used. Fix this. (RCU locking of channel structures in progress by Mathieu Desnoyers)
