RFE: systemtap-runtime inclusion
Last modified: 2011-08-19 11:25:39 EDT
Please include key parts of systemtap-runtime in the RHEV-H image, to
permit remotely invoked systemtap probing. As of systemtap-1.3, these
parts would be:
By RHEL6.1, systemtap-1.4 should be available, and may include an
additional small binary to help smoothen the remote probing task.
Bug #634995 covers the future stap-1.4 rebase.
The way this would work with current-day code is that a development/management
machine, with all the debuginfo / compilers goo installed, would have a stap
stap -p4 FOO.stp
scp FOOBAR.ko root@rhev-host:FOOBAR.ko
ssh root@rhev-host staprun FOOBAR.ko
basically according to the 'cross-compilation' pattern of operation. There
is currently no man page that spells out this sequence, but is outlined on
With systemtap 1.4, these steps will be automated (with a proper man page

Note: bug asks for /usr/bin/stapio, but rpm adds /usr/libexec/systemtap/stapio instead
rpm -qa systemtap-runtime

[root@intel-x5550-12-2 ~]# rpm -ql systemtap-runtime | grep staprun
[root@intel-x5550-12-2 ~]# rpm -ql systemtap-runtime | grep stapio
Is it possible to get systemtap in the RHEVH 5.x as well?
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Key systemtap-runtime parts such as /usr/bin/staprun and /usr/bin/stapio are now included in the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor image to allow remote invocation of systemtap probing.
