       btrace - perform live tracing for block devices

       btrace  [-s]  [-t]  [-w N] [-n N] [-b N] [-r <dbg mnt>] [-a <trace>...]

       The btrace script provides a quick and easy way to do live  tracing  of
       block  devices.	 It  calls blktrace on the specified devices and pipes
       the output through blkparse for formatting.  See blktrace (8) for  more
       in-depth information about how blktrace works.

       -s Displays data sorted by program (see blkparse (1)).

       -t Displays time deltas per IO (see blkparse (1)).

       -w  N  Sets  run	 time to the number of seconds specified (see blktrace

       -n N Specifies the number of buffers to use (see blktrace (8)).

       -b N Specifies buffer size for event extraction (scaled by  1024)  (see
	   blktrace (8)).

       -r <dbg mnt> Specifies the debugfs mountpoint.

       -a <trace>...  Adds mask to current filter (see blktrace (8)).

       <dev> Specifies the device to trace.

       Simply running

	   % btrace /dev/sda

       will show a trace of the device /dev/sda.
