635 <title>Build History SDK Information</title>
636 <para>
637 Build history collects similar information on the contents
638 of SDKs (for example, <filename>meta-toolchain</filename>
639 or <filename>bitbake -c populate_sdk imagename</filename>)
640 to that which it collects for images.
641 The files produced for each SDK are as follows:
642 <itemizedlist>
643 <listitem><para><filename>files-in-sdk.txt:</filename>
644 A list of files in the SDK with permissions,
645 owner, group, size, and symlink information.
646 This includes both the host and target parts
647 of the SDK.
648 </para></listitem>
649 <listitem><para><filename>sdk-info.txt:</filename>
650 A text file containing name-value pairs with information
651 about the SDK.
652 See the following listing example for more information.
653 </para></listitem>
654 <listitem><para>Under each of the <filename>host</filename> and
655 <filename>target</filename> directories (for the portions of the
656 SDK that run on the host and on the target respectively):
657 <itemizedlist>
658 <listitem><para><filename>depends.dot:</filename>
659 Dependency graph for the SDK that is
660 compatible with <filename>graphviz</filename>.
661 </para></listitem>
662 <listitem><para><filename>installed-package-names.txt:</filename>
663 A list of installed packages by name only.</para></listitem>
664 <listitem><para><filename>installed-package-sizes.txt:</filename>
665 A list of installed packages ordered by size.
666 </para></listitem>
667 <listitem><para><filename>installed-packages.txt:</filename>
668 A list of installed packages with full package
669 filenames.</para></listitem>

676 Here is an example of <filename>sdk-info.txt</filename>:

678DISTRO = poky
679DISTRO_VERSION = 1.3+snapshot-20130327

684BAD_RECOMMENDATIONS =
685SDKSIZE = 352712
686 </literallayout>
687 Other than <filename>SDKSIZE</filename>, which is the
688 total size of the files in the SDK in Kbytes, the
689 name-value pairs are variables that may have influenced the
690 content of the SDK.
691 This information is often useful when you are trying to determine
692 why a change in the package or file listings has occurred.
