Nginx is a very famous lightweight http server, and I use the latest lttng suits, I can't resolve this.

Subject: Re: [lttng-dev] lttng function tracing nginx problem

hi all,
I compile the nginx-1.4.7 with FLAG -finstrument-functions , and start nginx like this:
LD_PRELOAD=liblttng-ust-cyg-profile-fast.so  ./nginx
Then I use the command lttng list --userspace and got nothing like this:
UST events:-------------None
I don't understand why I can't get the func_exit/entry events from nginx.
Is the "ngix" executable a binary executable or a shell script ?

Can you give us the output of "file ./ngix" ?

You might want to try

export LD_PRELOAD=liblttng-ust-cyg-profile-fast.so



By the way, I test function tracing with a single c source file and works well, output like this:
UST events:-------------
PID: 4687 - Name: ./tt      lttng_ust_cyg_profile:func_exit (loglevel: TRACE_DEBUG_FUNCTION (12)) (type: tracepoint)      lttng_ust_cyg_profile:func_entry (loglevel: TRACE_DEBUG_FUNCTION (12)) (type: tracepoint)      lttng_ust_tracef:event (loglevel: TRACE_DEBUG (14)) (type: tracepoint)

      ust_baddr_statedump:soinfo (loglevel: TRACE_DEBUG_LINE (13)) (type: tracepoint)

Wishing for help.
