5Lttngtop is an ncurses interface for reading and browsing traces recorded by
6the LTTng tracer and displaying various statistics.
7As of now, the cpu usage, per file/process I/O bandwidth and perf counters are
8displayed. This release is the first one that handles live sessions as well as
9offline sessions.

29
30 gcc 3.2 or better
31 libc6 development librairies
32 (Debian : libc6, libc6-dev)
33 (Fedora : glibc, glibc)
34 glib 2.22 or better development libraries
35 (Debian : libglib2.0-0, libglib2.0-dev)
36 (Fedora : glib2, glib2-devel)
37 libpopt >= 1.13 development libraries
38 (Debian : libpopt-dev)
39 (Fedora : popt)

50For developers using the git tree:
51
52This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
53portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
54compile the git repository tree :
55
56- GNU autotools (automake >=1.10, autoconf >=2.50, autoheader >=2.50)
57 (make sure your system wide "automake" points to a recent version!)
58- GNU Libtool >=2.2
59 (for more information, go to http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/)
60
61If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
62script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
63tree configuration.
