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

28 To compile Babeltrace and lttngtop, you need:
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)
40 ncurses development libraries
41 (Debian : libncurses5-dev)
42 babeltrace = 1.2.4 development library
43 (Debian : libbabeltrace-dev, libbabeltrace-ctf-dev)
44
45 To use the local live tracing feature, you need:
46 lttng-tools >= 2.4
47 lttng-modules >= 2.4
48 babeltrace = 1.2.4

50 For developers using the git tree:
51
52 This source tree is based on the autotools suite from GNU to simplify
53 portability. Here are some things you should have on your system in order to
54 compile 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
61 If you get the tree from the repository, you will need to use the "bootstrap"
62 script in the root of the tree. It calls all the GNU tools needed to prepare the
63 tree configuration.
