[5] Running the Logging Server

When the logging server starts up (via the command line, so that it's simple to start logging servers automatically or remotely), the first thing it does is read in the DTraq Data Structures files that were produced by dtq-analyze's source code scan.

vdt displays status messages as it initializes, including the IDs of data items that it is capable of logging. It then indicates that is ready to accept connections from client data viewers and tapped applications.

$ dtq-vdt -c
