dbus-monitor  [--system  |  --session | --address ADDRESS] [--profile |
       --monitor] [watch expressions]

       The dbus-monitor command is used to monitor messages  going  through  a
       D-Bus  message  bus.  See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for
       more information about the big picture.

       There are two well-known message  buses:  the  systemwide  message  bus
       (installed  on  many  systems  as  the  "messagebus"  service)  and the
       per-user-login-session message bus (started each time a user logs  in).
       The  --system  and --session options direct dbus-monitor to monitor the
       system  or  session  buses  respectively.   If  neither  is  specified,
       dbus-monitor monitors the session bus.

       dbus-monitor  has two different output modes, the 'classic'-style moni-
       toring mode and profiling mode. The profiling format is a compact  for-
       mat  with  a  single line per message and microsecond-resolution timing
       information. The --profile and --monitor options select  the  profiling
       and  monitoring  output  format  respectively. If neither is specified,
       dbus-monitor uses the monitoring output format.

       In order to get dbus-monitor to see the messages you are interested in,
       you should specify a set of watch expressions as you would expect to be
       passed to the dbus_bus_add_match function.

       The message bus configuration may keep  dbus-monitor  from  seeing  all
       messages, especially if you run the monitor as a non-root user.

              Monitor the system message bus.

              Monitor the session message bus.  (This is the default.)

       --address ADDRESS
              Monitor an arbitrary message bus given at ADDRESS.

              Use the profiling output format.

              Use the monitoring output format.  (This is the default.)
