SYNOPSIS

#include <event-parse.h>

enum trace_flag_type {
        TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF,
        TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPORT,
        TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED,
        TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ,
        TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ,
};

int tep_data_type(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec);
int tep_data_pid(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec);
int tep_data_preempt_count(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec);
int tep_data_flags(struct tep_handle *tep, struct tep_record *rec);

DESCRIPTION

This set of functions can be used to extract common fields from a record.

The tep_data_type() function gets the event id from the record rec. It reads the "common_type" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_pid() function gets the process id from the record rec. It reads the "common_pid" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_preempt_count() function gets the preemption count from the record rec. It reads the "common_preempt_count" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context.

The tep_data_flags() function gets the latency flags from the record rec. It reads the "common_flags" field. The tep argument is the trace event parser context. Supported latency flags are:

        TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_OFF,          Interrupts are disabled.
        TRACE_FLAG_IRQS_NOSUPPORT,    Reading IRQ flag is not supported by the architecture.
        TRACE_FLAG_NEED_RESCHED,      Task needs rescheduling.
        TRACE_FLAG_HARDIRQ,           Hard IRQ is running.
        TRACE_FLAG_SOFTIRQ,           Soft IRQ is running.

RETURN VALUE

The tep_data_type() function returns an integer, representing the event id.

The tep_data_pid() function returns an integer, representing the process id

The tep_data_preempt_count() function returns an integer, representing the preemption count.

The tep_data_flags() function returns an integer, representing the latency flags. Look at the trace_flag_type enum for supported flags.

All these functions in case of an error return a negative integer.
