You are right, CTF supports enumerations. Currently, neither
lttng-modules nor lttng-ust allow emitting those enumerations from
tracepoints (it's just not been implemented yet).
We'd have to add that to LTTng-UST tracepoints, e.g., something
TP_ENUM_V(SOMENAMEA) /* value 0 */
TP_ENUM_V(SOMENAMEB) /* value 1 */
TP_ENUM_V(SOMENAMEC, 5) /* value 5 */
TP_ENUM_V(SOMENAMED) /* value 6 */
TP_ENUM_R(SOMENAMEE, 8, 10) /* range 8 to 10 (inclusive) */
TP_ENUM_V(SOMENAMEF) /* value 11 */
ctf_enum(enum_name, int, fieldname, someint)
where ctf_enum would be:
ctf_enum(name of enumeration,
type of enumeration container,
name of the field,
name of the TP_ARGS entry to use as source
I did early experiments with this in lttng-modules (code unfinished and
unused at this stage). You can dig it up in the files:
of lttng-modules. Please keep in mind that these are unfinished and
might need a lot of changes to get straight.
