HSOC Eventlog live profiling
Hi, it is ticket for results of my Haskell Summer of Code 2016 project .
The goal is provide feature for redirection of events to external profilers without an application termination.
- Changing eventlog file descriptor in runtime.
/* * Set custom file stream for global event log sink. * * The function overwrites previous event log file pointer. Previouss * sink is closed only if closePrev flag is on. * * Writing to the sink is protected by global mutex. * * The function puts header to the new sink only when emitHeader flag * is on. User might not want the header if it is switching to * already existed eventlog handle that was switched away recently. */ void rts_setEventLogSink(FILE *sink, StgBool closePrev, StgBool emitHeader); /* * Get current file stream that is used for global event log sink. * * You shouldn't do anything with the pointer until * rts_setEventLogSink(otherFileOrNull, false) is called. After that * you can do anything with the file stream. */ FILE* rts_getEventLogSink(void);
- Special flag
-lmfor RTS to store eventlog in memory chunks. User space functions to retrieve the chunks from memory.
/* * If RTS started with '-lm' flag then eventlog is stored in memory buffer. * * The function allows to pop chunks of the buffer. Return value of 0 means * that there is no any filled chunk of data. * * If the function returns nonzero value the parameter contains full chunk * of eventlog data with size of the returned value. Caller must free the * buffer, the buffer isn't referenced anywhere anymore. * * If nobody calls the function with '-lm' flag then the memory is kinda * to be exhausted. */ StgWord64 rts_getEventLogChunk(StgInt8** ptr);
- Feature for dynamic resize of eventlog buffers.
/* * Reallocate inner buffers to match the new size. The size should be not * too small to contain at least one event. * * If RTS started with '-lm' the chunks of memory buffer is also resized. */ void rts_resizeEventLog(StgWord64 size); /* * Return current size of eventlog buffers. */ StgWord64 rts_getEventLogBuffersSize(void);
- Bindings to new features in
-- | The 'setEventLogCFile' function changes current sink of the eventlog, if eventlog -- profiling is available and enabled at runtime. -- -- The second parameter defines whether old sink should be finalized and closed or not. -- Preserving it could be helpful for temporal redirection of eventlog data into not -- standard sink and then restoring to the default file sink. -- -- The third parameter defines whether new header section should be emitted to the new -- sink. Emitting header to already started eventlog streams will corrupt the structure -- of eventlog format. -- -- The function is more low-level than 'setEventLogHandle' but doesn't recreate underlying -- file descriptor and is intended to use with 'getEventLogCFile' to save and restore -- current sink of the eventlog. -- -- @since 188.8.131.52 setEventLogCFile :: Ptr CFile -> Bool -> Bool -> IO () -- | The 'getEventLogCFile' function returns current sink of the eventlog, if eventlog -- profiling is available and enabled at runtime. -- -- The function is intented to be used with 'setEventLogCFile' to save and restore -- current sink of the eventlog. -- -- @since 184.108.40.206 getEventLogCFile :: IO (Ptr CFile) -- | Setting size of internal eventlog buffers.
