Hello Chris,

Thanks for the review!

Yes, the record tracing works on all RTEMS targets.

The rtems-record-lttng tool is now available via RSB. I have updated the
doc patch(attached below)

These commands are tested on Linux distros. I have tested these commands on
Ubuntu 16 and fedora 30.

Telenet is not required for tracing. I have updated doc patch.

There are two types of input support for tracing. One is via TCP connection
where user
directly gets TCP stream on the host and another one is via stream file
where user can
provide the stream file generated from nc tool.

nc tool:

I think it's better to include the link of the page where  installation of
Trace Compass and add-ons required
are mentioned clearly with screenshots.

Yes. I agree. I have removed it.

There is currently no support to generate the tracing in particular folder
via rtems-record-lttng tool. I have included this task in TODO list in my
GSoC final report.

The trace files which are generated from the target have to be moved in a
folder where only tracing related files are present. If othere files which
are not related to tracing are found then babeltrace will print error.

Here is the response from LTTng for the same:
