2.2. Elements of a Tapset

The following sections describe the most important aspects of writing a tapset. Most of the content herein is suitable for developers who wish to contribute to SystemTap's upstream library of tapsets.

2.2.1. Tapset Files

Tapset files are stored in src/tapset/ of the SystemTap GIT directory. Most tapset files are kept at that level. If you have code that only works with a specific architecture or kernel version, you may choose to put your tapset in the appropriate subdirectory.
Installed tapsets are located in /usr/share/systemtap/tapset/ or /usr/local/share/systemtap/tapset.
Personal tapsets can be stored anywhere. However, to ensure that SystemTap can use them, use -I tapset_directory to specify their location when invoking stap.
