  • recording_mode String (optional) - Can be record-until-full, record-continuously, record-as-much-as-possible or trace-to-console. Defaults to record-until-full.

  • trace_buffer_size_in_events number (optional) - maximum size of the trace recording buffer in events.
  • enable_argument_filter boolean (optional) - if true, filter event data according to a whitelist of events that have been manually vetted to not include any PII. See the implementation in Chromium for specifics.
  • included_categories String - a list of tracing categories to include. Can include glob-like patterns using * at the end of the category name. See tracing categories for the list of categories.
  • excluded_categories String - a list of tracing categories to exclude. Can include glob-like patterns using * at the end of the category name. See tracing categories for the list of categories.
  • included_process_ids number - a list of process IDs to include in the trace. If not specified, trace all processes.
  • histogram_names String - a list of histogram names to report with the trace.

An example TraceConfig that roughly matches what Chrome DevTools records:

{
  recording_mode: 'record-until-full',
  included_categories: [
    'devtools.timeline',
    'disabled-by-default-devtools.timeline',
    'disabled-by-default-devtools.timeline.frame',
    'disabled-by-default-devtools.timeline.stack',
    'v8.execute',
    'blink.console',
    'blink.user_timing',
    'latencyInfo',
    'disabled-by-default-v8.cpu_profiler',
    'disabled-by-default-v8.cpu_profiler.hires'
  ],
  excluded_categories: [ '*' ]
}
