Create USDT probes and instrument your Python application dynamically

Project description

# python-stapsdt

Create USDT probes and instrument your Python application dynamically.

# Dependencies

At the moment this package only runs on Linux and requires
[libstapsdt]( to be installed to create
runtime probes.

## Ubuntu 16.04

To install libstapsdt, run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sthima/oss
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libstapsdt0 libstapsdt-dev

## Other

Build from [libstapsdt](

# Install

pip install stapsdt

# Example

The following code will create a probe named `firstProbe`.

from time import sleep

import stapsdt

provider = stapsdt.Provider("pythonapp")
probe = provider.add_probe(
"firstProbe", stapsdt.ArgTypes.uint64, stapsdt.ArgTypes.int32)

while True:
print("Firing probe...")
if"My little probe", 42):
print("Probe fired!")

You can then trace this probe with any tool able to trace Systemtap's probes.
Here's an example with eBPF/bcc:

sudo trace -p PID 'u::firstProbe "%s - %d", arg1, arg2'
