[PATCH wayland-protocols v2] protocol: add compositor-debug.xml
external.mdevadoss at de.adit-jv.com
Mon Sep 11 15:33:58 UTC 2017
This is a new debugging extension for non-production environments. The
aim is to replace all build-time choosable debug prints in the
compositor with runtime subscribable debug streams.

+ <description summary="compositor internal debugging">
+ This is a generic debugging interface for the compositor internals,the global
+ object advertized through wl_registry.
+ WARNING: This interface by design allows a denial-of-service attack. It
+ should not be offered in production, or proper authorization mechnisms
+ must be enforced.
+ The idea is for a client to provide a file descriptor that the server
+ uses for printing debug information. The server uses the file
+ descriptor in blocking writes mode, which exposes the denial-of-service
+ risk. The blocking mode is necessary to ensure all debug messages can
+ be easily printed in place. It also ensures message ordering if a
+ client subcribes to more than one debug stream.
+ The available debugging features depend on the server. There is no
+ explicit API for discovering the supported debug stream names. A server
+ should implement a debug stream named "list" where the server prints
+ the names and descriptions of all debug streams it supports to the
+ stream file descriptor.
+ A debug stream can be one-shot where the server prints the requested
+ information and then closes it, or continuous where server keeps on
+ printing until the client stops it. Or anything in between.
+ <request name="destroy" type="destructor">
+ <description summary="destroy factory object">

+ <request name="subscribe">
+ <description summary="subscribe to a debug stream">
+ Subscribe to a named debug stream. The server will start printing
+ to the given file descriptor.
+ If the named debug stream is a one-shot dump, the server will send
+ zcompositor_debug_v1.complete event once all requested data has
+ been printed. Otherwise, the server will continue streaming debug
+ prints until the subscription object is destroyed.
+ If the debug stream name is unknown to the server, the server will
+ immediately respond with zcompositor_debug_v1.failure event.

+ <description summary="server completed the debug stream">
+ The server has successfully finished writing to and has closed the

+ continuous debbug streams because they by definition never complete.

+ <description summary="server cannot continue the debug stream">
+ The server has stopped writing to and has closed the
+ associated file descriptor. The data already written to the file
+ descriptor is correct, but it may be truncated.

+ stream. It may be due to a failure in or shutdown of the server.
+ The message argument may provide a hint of the reason.
