       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

       dbus-monitor [--system | --session | --address ADDRESS] [--profile |
		    --monitor] [watch expressions]

       The dbus-monitor command is used to monitor messages going through a
       D-Bus message bus. See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for
       more information about the big picture.

       There are two well-known message buses: the systemwide message bus
       (installed on many systems as the "messagebus" service) and the
       per-user-login-session message bus (started each time a user logs in).
       The --system and --session options direct dbus-monitor to monitor the
       system or session buses respectively. If neither is specified,
       dbus-monitor monitors the session bus.

       dbus-monitor has two different output modes, the 'classic'-style
       monitoring mode and profiling mode. The profiling format is a compact
       format with a single line per message and microsecond-resolution timing
       information. The --profile and --monitor options select the profiling
       and monitoring output format respectively. If neither is specified,
       dbus-monitor uses the monitoring output format.

       In order to get dbus-monitor to see the messages you are interested in,
       you should specify a set of watch expressions as you would expect to be
       passed to the dbus_bus_add_match function.

       The message bus configuration may keep dbus-monitor from seeing all
       messages, especially if you run the monitor as a non-root user.

	   Monitor the system message bus.

	   Monitor the session message bus. (This is the default.)

       --address ADDRESS
	   Monitor an arbitrary message bus given at ADDRESS.

	   Use the profiling output format.

	   Use the monitoring output format. (This is the default.)

       Here is an example of using dbus-monitor to watch for the gnome typing
       monitor to say things

	     dbus-monitor "type='signal',sender='org.gnome.TypingMonitor',interface='org.gnome.TypingMonitor'"

       dbus-monitor was written by Philip Blundell. The profiling output mode
       was added by Olli Salli.
