babeltrace2-query-babeltrace.support-info - Babeltrace 2's support info query object
The babeltrace.support-info Babeltrace 2 query object indicates, for a given source component class, whether or not its instance can handle a given input, and if so, what’s the confidence of this support. Said input can be a simple string, an existing file path, or an existing directory path. Components which expect some form of URI can handle a string input, while components which expect an existing file or directory can handle a file/directory path input. When the source component class’s query method replies that its component can handle a given input, it can also specify the name of a group in which to put that input. All the inputs of a given group, for a given component class, should be passed when instantiating the component class as its inputs initialization parameter (array of strings). The babeltrace2-convert(1) command queries this object from specific source component classes to find the most appropriate for a given non-option argument.
input=INPUT [string] Check input INPUT. Depending on the type parameter, this is a simple string, a file path, or a directory path. type=(string | file | directory) [string] Input type, one of: string input parameter is a simple string. file input parameter is a file path. directory input parameter is a directory path. It is expected that the query method does not recurse into this directory: the result object indicates whether or not the component class supports this specific directory (input).
The result object can be one of: • A simple real value which is the weight, between 0 and 1, of the support by the component class for the given input. A weight of 0 means the input is unsupported while a weight of 1 means it’s fully supported. Any value in between shows how confident the component class is about the support of the given input. • A map with a weight and an optional group name. When it’s a map, the expected entries are: group=GROUP-NAME [optional string] Put the given input into a group named GROUP-NAME for this component class. If this entry is missing, then the given input gets its own, unique group. weight=WEIGHT [real] Weight, between 0 and 1, of the support by the component class for the given input. The semantics are the same as when the result object is a simple real value.
Query parameters Example 1. String input. input: net://relayd177/host/node23/active type: string Example 2. File path input. input: /home/user/traces/2019-08-26/quad.tr type: file Result object Example 3. Simple weight (unique group). 0.5 Example 4. Weight and specific group. group: 63a4b7e5-37f0-4254-a048-a0cff9e5b761 weight: 0.75 Example 5. Weight within a map (unique group). weight: 0.6
