DTRACE_IO(4)           FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual           DTRACE_IO(4)

NAME
     dtrace_io - a DTrace provider for tracing events related to disk I/O

SYNOPSIS
     io:::start(struct bio *, struct devstat *);

     io:::done(struct bio *, struct devstat *);

DESCRIPTION
     The io provider allows the tracing of disk I/O events.  The io:::start()
     probe fires when a I/O request is about to be sent to the backing driver
     of a disk(9) object.  This occurs after all GEOM(4) transformations have
     been performed on the request.  The io:::done() probe fires when a I/O
     request is completed.  Both probes take a struct bio * representing the
     I/O request as their first argument.  The second argument is a struct
     devstat * for the underlying disk(9) object.

ARGUMENTS
     The fields of struct bio are described in the g_bio(9) manual page, and
     the fields of struct devstat are described in the devstat(9) manual page.
     Translators for the bufinfo_t and devinfo_t D types are defined in
     /usr/lib/dtrace/io.d.

FILES
     /usr/lib/dtrace/io.d  DTrace type and translator definitions for the io
                           provider.

EXAMPLES
     The following script shows a per-process breakdown of total I/O by disk
     device:

           #pragma D option quiet

           io:::start
           {
                   @[args[1]->device_name, execname, pid] = sum(args[0]->bio_bcount);
           }

           END
           {
                   printf("%10s %20s %10s %15s\n", "DEVICE", "APP", "PID", "BYTES");
                   printa("%10s %20s %10d %[email protected]\n", @);
           }

COMPATIBILITY
     This provider is not compatible with the io provider found in Solaris, as
     its probes use native FreeBSD argument types.

HISTORY
     The io provider first appeared in FreeBSD 9.2 and 10.0.

BUGS
     The io:::wait-start() and io:::wait-done() probes are not currently
     implemented on FreeBSD.
