MethodTracerCli is a command-line interface of Android Studio's method tracer. You can run it independently without Android Studio. It's very useful when you want to do method tracing on a non-gui environment. So you can use it in your test or CI scripts.
You can download the jar in here.
And then you can run the jar with the
-h option to see the usage message:
