Hi folks,

We (Maciek and I) were on the call today, and were experiencing some audio/mic issues. We're looking for any documentation or usage models that people might have in flight already for BTF. Outside of the kernel source, we are drawing a blank. Any pointers here would be most helpful.
I expect to use BTF as a source for kernel struct information, as a
lightweight version of debuginfo (and hopefully one day BTF info will
be included in the kernel binary, so it's always there). I have no
docs to share yet. If you figure anything out, please share anywhere.
Here, blog post, talk, etc. :-)
Currently, we are still in the design and prototyping stage. Will
definitely share for comments
once we got some concept design and RFC implementation.

There are some initial bits on BTF (mostly on the workflow for now) in
the Cilium doc that can be found here:


Perhaps that helps to get started.
