+================

+NAME
+----
+tep_print_event - Writes event information into a trace sequence.
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+[verse]
+--
+*#include <event-parse.h>*
+*#include <trace-seq.h>*
+
+void *tep_print_event*(struct tep_handle pass:[*]_tep_, struct trace_seqpass:[*]_s_, struct tep_record pass:[*]_record_, const char pass:[*]_fmt_, _..._)
+--
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+The _tep_print_event()_ function parses the event information of the given
+_record_ and writes it into the trace sequence _s_, according to the format
+string _fmt_. The desired information is specified after the format string.
+The _fmt_ is printf-like format string, following arguments are supported:
+[verse]
+--
+ TEP_PRINT_PID, "%d" - PID of the event.
+ TEP_PRINT_CPU, "%d" - Event CPU.
+ TEP_PRINT_COMM, "%s" - Event command string.
+ TEP_PRINT_NAME, "%s" - Event name.
+ TEP_PRINT_LATENCY, "%s" - Latency of the event. It prints 4 or more
+ fields - interrupt state, scheduling state,
+ current context, and preemption count.
+ Field 1 is the interrupt enabled state:
+ d : Interrupts are disabled
+ . : Interrupts are enabled
+ X : The architecture does not support this
+ information
+ Field 2 is the "need resched" state.
+ N : The task is set to call the scheduler when
+ possible, as another higher priority task
+ may need to be scheduled in.
+ . : The task is not set to call the scheduler.
+ Field 3 is the context state.
+ . : Normal context
+ s : Soft interrupt context
+ h : Hard interrupt context
+ H : Hard interrupt context which triggered
+ during soft interrupt context.
+ z : NMI context
+ Z : NMI context which triggered during hard
+ interrupt context
+ Field 4 is the preemption count.
+ . : The preempt count is zero.
+ On preemptible kernels (where the task can be scheduled
+ out in arbitrary locations while in kernel context), the
+ preempt count, when non zero, will prevent the kernel
+ from scheduling out the current task. The preempt count
+ number is displayed when it is not zero.
+ Depending on the kernel, it may show other fields
+ (lock depth, or migration disabled, which are unique to
+ specialized kernels).
+ TEP_PRINT_TIME, %d - event time stamp. A divisor and precision can be
+ specified as part of this format string:
+ "%precision.divisord". Example:
+ "%3.1000d" - divide the time by 1000 and print the first
+ 3 digits before the dot. Thus, the time stamp
+ "123456000" will be printed as "123.456"
+ TEP_PRINT_INFO, "%s" - event information.
+ TEP_PRINT_INFO_RAW, "%s" - event information, in raw format.

+EXAMPLE
+-------
+[source,c]
+--
+#include <event-parse.h>
+#include <trace-seq.h>
+...
+struct trace_seq seq;
+trace_seq_init(&seq);
+struct tep_handle *tep = tep_alloc();
+...
+void print_my_event(struct tep_record *record)
+{
+ trace_seq_reset(&seq);
+ tep_print_event(tep, s, record, "%16s-%-5d [%03d] %s %6.1000d %s %s",
+ TEP_PRINT_COMM, TEP_PRINT_PID, TEP_PRINT_CPU,
+ TEP_PRINT_LATENCY, TEP_PRINT_TIME, TEP_PRINT_NAME,
+ TEP_PRINT_INFO);
+}
