Hi Tao,

due to lack of financing, the latency_tracker project 
(https://github.com/efficios/latency-tracker/) isn't being actively 
maintained at this time.

Another option to get information on event latencies is to have 
"_entry"- and "_exit"-style events and perform post-processing of the 
traces with the Trace Compass Incubator "inandout" plugin.

When installed, compiled, load the new probe module with modprobe lttng-probe-latency_tracker", but I can't find the "lttng-probe-latency_tracker" module in the lttng-module compiled modules or in the span-latency-tracker compiled modules.

This appears to be a fork of the latency_tracker project. We're not in a 
position to offer support for any changes that have been made there.
