Description

Here's a feature that was discussed during last hack-a-thon:

Write a babeltrace plugin that would allow to remove all internal information from the trace, so that the trace can be sent for analysis without exposing internal information.

The kind of information to anonymize (not exhaustive, more thoughts need to be put in it):

  • In the metadata: host names
  • IP addresses: Change them for dummy IPs
  • File names
  • Process names?

The plugin should keep a mapping of the anonymized information so that results can be mapped back to original data.
