Poti is a library to create trace files in the Paje file format. You should not use it directly during the tracing of your application (I won't stop you from doing this if you want). I recommend its use after traces are collected in your preferred file format (probably binary with memory buffers to avoid at a maximum the tracing intrusion). Note that the current version of Poti does not provide any kind of correctness verification in the parameters you pass for the library functions, although we are working on this to support some error verification with minimal memory utilization.
Raw textual traces in the Paje file format are hard to be exploited. A
trace replay, in a simplistic simulation environment, is implemented
by the PajeNG suite through the
pj_dump tool. It has an exhaustive set of semantic checks for
verification of the compliance to the Paje file format and model. As
pj_dump dumps CSV files that can be easily exploited the
way you want with your preferred programming language.
Clone, Compilation and Installation
git clone git://github.com/schnorr/poti.git cd poti mkdir build cd build cmake .. make install
Change the installation directory with:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/your/installation/directory/ .. make install
There are many examples on how to use the poti API. You can execute them:
- Check all function parameters and trace consistency according to the Paje file format
- Use data structures instead of strings for all parameters
- Alias management (get rid of user-generated aliases)
