oparchive - produce archive of oprofile data for offline analysis


oparchive [ options ] [profile specification] -o [directory]

--help / -? / --usage
Show help message.
--version / -v
Show version.
--verbose / -V [options]
Give verbose debugging output.
Use sample database from the specified directory dir_path instead of the default locations. If --session-dir is not specified, then oparchive will search for samples in <current_dir>/oprofile_data first. If that directory does not exist, the standard session-dir of /var/lib/oprofile is used.
--image-path / -p [paths]
Comma-separated list of additional paths to search for binaries. This is needed to find modules in kernels 2.6 and upwards.
--root / -R [path]
A path to a filesystem to search for additional binaries.
--output-directory / -o [directory]
Output to the given directory. There is no default. This must be specified.
--exclude-dependent / -x
Do not include application-specific images for libraries, kernel modules and the kernel. This option only makes sense if the profile session used --separate.
--list-files / -l
Only list the files that would be archived, don't copy them.


No special environment variables are recognised by oparchive.
