I have a set of applications, I want to montior any and all interactions of the applications with dbus.
The things I've played with don't seem to have a way of focusing on just one application.
As an example consider two applications foo and bar that are trying to connect via dbus ( OK the language there is a bit off ). foo tries to setup a server as 'org.gnome.TypingMonitor' but bar tries to connect to 'org.gnome.TypignMonitor'.
I would like to monitor the connection attempts then the data transmitted to make sure handshaking afterwards is working right.
strace might work, but strace is too fine grained. An strace that traces dbus calls instead of system calls would fit the bill.
