Bug #18886

Struct aref and aset don't trigger any tracepoints.

Added by ioquatix (Samuel Williams) 3 months ago. Updated 9 days ago.

Description

Given the following program, thing.name and thing.shape don't trigger c_call trace points (or any trace points actually).

pp RUBY_VERSION

trace_point = TracePoint.new(:line, :call, :c_call, :a_call) do |trace|
  puts trace.event

  if trace.event == :call
    # Ruby doesn't always mark call-sites in sub-expressions, so we use this approach to compute a call site and mark it:
    if location = caller_locations(2, 1).first and path = location.path
      puts "> #{path}:#{location.lineno}:#{trace.event}"
    end
  end
  
  if path = trace.path
    puts "= #{path}:#{trace.lineno}:#{trace.event}"
  end
end

trace_point.enable

# This will trigger call trace points
class Thing
  def name
    :cat
  end
  
  def shape
    :square
  end
end
thing = Thing.new

# Thing = Struct.new(:name, :shape)
# thing = Thing.new(:cat, :rectangle)

[
  name: thing.name,
  shape: thing.shape,
]

= ../test.rb:34:c_call:name
= ../test.rb:35:c_call:shape

The reason is the internal implementation of struct doesn't have trace point instrumentation in vm_call_opt_struct_aset or vm_call_opt_struct_aref.

Proposed fix: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/6071 but this would need a review, maybe @jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans) and @ko1 (Koichi Sasada) can help.
