NAME
       strace-log-merge - merge strace -ff -tt output

SYNOPSIS
       strace-log-merge STRACE_LOG

       strace-log-merge --help

DESCRIPTION
       strace-log-merge  merges  the  output  of  strace  -ff  -tt[t] command,
       prepending PID to each line and sorting the result using time stamp  as
       a key.

OPTIONS
       --help Show program usage and exit.

       STRACE_LOG
              Output file name prefix of files produced by a strace -ff -tt[t]
              command.

EXIT STATUS
       0      Success

       Non-zero
              Error occurred: either no argument specified  (in  that  case  a
              usage is printed), or something went wrong during the processing
              of STRACE_LOG.*  files.

USAGE EXAMPLE

               sh -c 'sleep 0.1 & sleep 0.2 & sleep 0.3'

NOTES
       strace-log-merge does not work  well  with  strace  logs  generated  by
       strace -tt invocation that pass midnight, as those lack the information
       required for the proper sorting.  Employing  the  -ttt  option  in  the
       respective strace invocation should solve the problem.

BUGS
       strace-log-merge  does  not perform any checks whether the files speci-
       fied are in the correct format and implies that only files from a  sin-
       gle strace session match STRACE_LOG.*  glob pattern.

HISTORY
       The  initial  version of strace-log-merge was written by Denys Vlasenko
       in 2012.

REPORTING BUGS
       Problems with strace-log-merge should be reported to the strace mailing
       list at <strace-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>.
