## Overview

This component provides a log and trace interface, based on the standardised
protocol specified in the AUTOSAR standard 4.0 DLT. This software can be used
by GENIVI components and other applications as logging framework.

DLT basically consists of 3 components:

- **DLT Library**: Enables DLT logging for DLT user applications and temporary
  storage of log messages if daemon isn't available.
- **DLT Daemon**: Receiving log messages from DLT user applications and
  temporary storage of log messages if client isn't available. Transmit log
  messages to DLT Client and response to control messages.
- **DLT Client**: Receiving and storing log messages from DLT Daemon into one
  single trace file and sending control message

Furthermore, the repository contains several adaptors, console utilities as well
as test applications.

## Build and install

The following packages need to be installed in order to be able to build and
install DLT daemon:

- cmake
- zlib
- dbus

On Ubuntu those dependencies can be installed with the following command:

`sudo apt-get install cmake zlib1g-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev`

To build and install the DLT daemon, follow these steps:

```bash
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make
optional: sudo make install
optional: sudo ldconfig
```

## Contribution

Start working, best practice is to commit smaller, compilable pieces during the
work that makes it easier to handle later on.

If you want to commit your changes, create a
[Pull Request](https://github.com/genivi/dlt-daemon/pulls) in Github.

### Coding Rules

Before contributing code, run uncrustify to harmonize code style.

Configuration: util/uncrustify.cfg
uncrustify version: 0.68\_f

## Known issues

List of open issues can be found on
[Github](https://github.com/GENIVI/dlt-daemon/issues)

- DLT library: Usage of dlt\_user\_log\_write\_float64() and DLT\_FLOAT64()
  leads to "Illegal instruction (core dumped)" on ARM target.
- DLT library: Nested calls to DLT\_LOG\_ ... are not supported, and will lead
  to a deadlock.
- For Non linux platforms [eg: QNX] IPC supported is UNIX\_SOCKET. For Linux
  Platforms both IPC FIFO and UNIX\_SOCKET are supported
