This repository provides go bindings for the bcc framework as well as low-level routines to load and use eBPF programs from .elf files.
gobpf is in early stage, but usable. Input and contributions are very much welcome.
We recommend to vendor gobpf and pin its version as the API probably undergoes change during development.
eBPF requires a recent Linux kernel. A good feature list can be found here: https://github.com/iovisor/bcc/blob/master/docs/kernel-versions.md
Install the latest released version of libbcc (either by package or source).
Building ELF object files
To build ELF object files for usage with the elf package, you must use distinct
SEC("...")). Currently supported are:
Map definitions must correspond to
bpf_map_def from the elf package
Otherwise you will encounter an error like
only one map with size 280 bytes allowed per section (check bpf_map_def).
tests/dummy.c for a minimal dummy and https://github.com/weaveworks/tcptracer-bpf
for a real world example.
Example code can be found in the
examples/ directory, e.g.
sudo -E go run examples/bcc/perf/perf.go
semaphore.sh script can be used to run the tests in rkt stage1-kvm
containers on different kernel versions. To run all tests on the host system,
go test as follows:
go test -tags integration -v ./...
