NAME
       dbus-monitor - debug probe to print message bus messages

SYNOPSIS
       dbus-monitor  [--system	|  --session]  [--profile  | --monitor] [watch
       expressions]

DESCRIPTION
       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 sys‐
       tem or session buses respectively.  If neither is specified, dbus-moni‐
       tor monitors the session bus.

       dbus-monitor  has two different output modes, the 'classic'-style moni‐
       toring mode and profiling mode. The profiling format is a compact  for‐
       mat  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_watch function.

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

OPTIONS
       --system
	      Monitor the system message bus.

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

       --profile
	      Use the profiling output format.

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

EXAMPLE
       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'"

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

BUGS
       Please  send  bug reports to the D-Bus mailing list or bug tracker, see
