bpftool allows for inspection and simple modification of BPF objects on the system.

Note that format of the output of all tools is not guaranteed to be stable and should not be depended upon.

Print short help message (similar to bpftool help).
Print version number (similar to bpftool version), and optional features that were included when bpftool was compiled. Optional features include linking against libbfd to provide the disassembler for JIT-ted programs (bpftool prog dump jited) and usage of BPF skeletons (some features like bpftool prog profile or showing pids associated to BPF objects may rely on it).
Generate JSON output. For commands that cannot produce JSON, this option has no effect.
Generate human-readable JSON output. Implies -j.
Print all logs available, even debug-level information. This includes logs from libbpf as well as from the verifier, when attempting to load programs.
Allow loading maps with unknown map definitions.
Do not automatically attempt to mount any virtual file system (such as tracefs or BPF virtual file system) when necessary.
