Description Lukas Zapletal 2016-08-02 04:04:24 EDT
For Satellite performance debugging, we would like to have the possibility to hook on ruby markers, but it's not possible:

[root@fseven ~]# cat rubystack.stp 

global fn_calls;

probe ruby.cmethod.entry
        fn_calls[classname, methodname] <<< 1;

probe end {
        foreach ([classname, methodname] in fn_calls- limit 30) {
                printf("%dx %s.%s\n",
                                @count(fn_calls[classname, methodname]),
                                classname, methodname);

        delete fn_calls;


[root@fseven ~]# stap rubystack.stp -c "scl enable rh-ruby22 \"ruby factorial.rb 5\""

# SYSTEM RUBY (working ok)

[root@fseven ~]# stap rubystack.stp -c "ruby factorial.rb 5"

I will look into it.
Comment 2 Pavel Valena 2016-08-26 13:29:40 EDT

I took your exact .stp file and I got correct SystemTap output without any issue.

In your case it is caused by invalid commands order. Running `scl enable ...` command, shell environment and paths are changed, which interferes with SystemTap.

# rpm -q rh-ruby22-ruby

# scl enable rh-ruby22 -- stap rubystack.stp -c "ruby factorial.rb 5"

[rh-ruby22 ~]# ruby --version
ruby 2.2.2p95 (2015-04-13 revision 50295) [x86_64-linux]

Please confirm that it works with commands in correct order.

I agree with Pavel's assessment => Closing this as a NOTABUG. Feel free to reopen in case we are wrong.
Comment 4 Lukas Zapletal 2016-09-06 09:37:44 EDT
Thanks Pavel, I haven't noticed this.
