/* Visual event tracer, creates a log of events on each thread for visualization */

/**
 * The event tracer code is by default disabled in both build and run time.
 *
 * To enable this code at build time, add --enable-visual-profiling to your 
 * configure options.
 *
 * To enable this code at run time, export MOZ_PROFILING_FILE env var with 
 * a path to the file to write the log to.  This is all you need to produce 
 * the log of all events instrumentation in the mozilla code.
 * Check MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_* macros bellow to add your own.
 *
 * To let the event tracer log only some events to save disk space, export 
 * MOZ_PROFILING_EVENTS with comma separated list of event names you want 
 * to record in the log.

#ifdef MOZ_VISUAL_EVENT_TRACER

// Bind an object instance, usually |this|, to a name, usually URL or 
// host name, the instance deals with for its lifetime.  The name string 
// is duplicated.
// IMPORTANT: it is up to the caller to pass the correct static_cast
// of the |instance| pointer to all these macros ; otherwise the linking
// of events and objects will not work!
// The name will show in details of the events on the timeline and also
// will allow events filtering by host names, URLs etc.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_NAME_OBJECT(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eName, instance, name)

// The same as MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_NAME_OBJECT, just simplifies building
// names when it consists of two parts
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_COMPOUND_NAME(instance, name, name2) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eName, instance, name, name2)


// Call the followings with the same |instance| reference as you have 
// previously called MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_NAME_OBJECT.
// Let |name| be the name of the event happening, like "resolving", 
// "connecting", "loading" etc.

// This will crate a single-point-in-time event marked with an arrow 
// on the timeline, this is a way to indicate an event without a duration.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_MARK(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eShot, instance, name)

// Following macros are used to log events with duration.
// There always has to be complete WAIT,EXEC,DONE or EXEC,DONE 
// uninterrupted and non-interferring tuple(s) for an event to be correctly 
// shown on the timeline.  Each can be called on any thread, the event tape is
// finally displayed on the thread where it has been EXECuted.

// Example of 3 phases usage for "HTTP request channel":
// WAIT: we've just created the channel and called AsyncOpen on it
// EXEC: we've just got first call to OnDataAvailable, so we are actually
//       receiving the content after some time like connection establising,
//       opening a cache entry, sending the GET request...
// DONE: we've just got OnStopRequest call that indicates the content
//       has been completely delivered and the request is now finished

// Indicate an event pending start, on the timeline this will 
// start the event's interval tape with a pale color, the time will
// show in details.  Usually used when an event is being posted or
// we wait for a lock acquisition.
// WAITING is not mandatory, some events don't have a pending phase.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_WAIT(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eWait, instance, name)

// Indicate start of an event actual execution, on the timeline this will 
// change the event's tape to a deeper color, the time will show in details.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_EXEC(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eExec, instance, name)

// Indicate the end of an event execution (the event has been done),
// on the timeline this will end the event's tape and show the time in
// event details.
// NOTE: when the event duration is extremely short, like 1ms, it will convert
// to an event w/o a duration - the same as MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_MARK would be used.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_DONE(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eDone, instance, name)

// The same meaning as the above macros, just for concurent events.
// Concurent event means it can happen for the same instance on more
// then just a single thread, e.g. a service method call, a global lock 
// acquisition, enter and release.
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_WAIT_THREADSAFE(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eWait | mozilla::eventtracer::eThreadConcurrent, instance, name)
#define MOZ_EVENT_TRACER_EXEC_THREADSAFE(instance, name) \
  mozilla::eventtracer::Mark(mozilla::eventtracer::eExec | mozilla::eventtracer::eThreadConcurrent, instance, name)
