.SH NAME
opannotate \- produce source or assembly annotated with profile data
.SH SYNOPSIS
.br
.B opannotate
[
.I options
]
[profile specification]
.SH DESCRIPTION

.B opannotate
outputs annotated source and/or assembly from profile data of an OProfile
session. See oprofile(1) for how to write profile specifications.

.SH OPTIONS
.TP
.BI "--assembly / -a"
Output annotated assembly. The binary file to be annotated does not need full debugging
information to use this option, but symbol information
.I is
required. Without symbol information,
.B opannotate
will silently refuse to annotate the binary.
If this option is combined with --source, then mixed
source / assembly annotations are output.
.br
.TP
.BI "--demangle / -D none|smart|normal"
none: no demangling. normal: use default demangler (default) smart: use
pattern-matching to make C++ symbol demangling more readable.
.br
.TP
.BI "--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.
.br
.TP
.BI "--exclude-file [files]"
Exclude all files in the given comma-separated list of glob patterns.
.br
.TP
.BI "--exclude-symbols / -e [symbols]"
Exclude all the symbols in the given comma-separated list.
.br
.TP
.BI "--help / -? / --usage"
Show help message.
.br
.TP
.BI "--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.
.br
.TP
.BI "--root / -R [path]"
A path to a filesystem to search for additional binaries.
.br
.TP
.BI "--include-file [files]"
Only include files in the given comma-separated list of glob patterns.
.br
.TP
.BI "--include-symbols / -i [symbols]"
Only include symbols in the given comma-separated list.
.br
.TP
.BI "--objdump-params [params]"
Pass the given parameters as extra values when calling objdump.
.br
.TP
.BI "--output-dir / -o [dir]"
Output directory. This makes opannotate output one annotated file for each
source file. This option can't be used in conjunction with --assembly.
.br
.TP
.BI "--search-dirs / -d [paths]"
Comma-separated list of paths to search for source files. You may need to use
this option when the debug information for an image contains relative paths.
.br
.TP
.BI "--base-dirs / -b [paths]"
Comma-separated list of paths to strip from debug source files, prior to
looking for them in --search-dirs.
.br
.TP
.BI "--session-dir="dir_path
Use sample database from the specified directory
.I dir_path
instead of the default locations. If
.I --session-dir
is not specified, then
.B opannotate
will search for samples in
.I <current_dir>/oprofile_data
first. If that directory does not exist, the standard session-dir of /var/lib/oprofile is used.
.br
.TP
.BI "--source / -s"
Output annotated source. This requires debugging information to be available
for the binaries.
.br
.TP
.BI "--threshold / -t [percentage]"
Only output data for symbols that have more than the given percentage
of total samples.
.br
.TP
.BI "--verbose / -V [options]"
Give verbose debugging output.
.br
.TP
.BI "--version / -v"
Show version.
