# Main library
go get github.com/dropbox/goebpf

# Mock version (if needed)
go get github.com/dropbox/goebpf/goebpf_mock

Quick start

Consider very simple example of Read / Load / Attach

    // In order to be simple this examples does not handle errors
    bpf := goebpf.NewDefaultEbpfSystem()
    // Read clang compiled binary
    // Load XDP program into kernel (name matches function name in C)
    xdp := bpf.GetProgramByName("xdp_test")
    // Attach to interface
    defer xdp.Detach()
    // Work with maps
    test := bpf.GetMapByName("test")
    value, _ := test.LookupInt(0)
    fmt.Printf("Value at index 0 of map 'test': %d\n", value)

Like it? Check our examples

Perf Events

Currently library has support for one, most popular use case of perf_events: where eBPFmap key maps tocpu_id. So eBPFandgoparts actually bindcpu_id` to map index. It maybe as simple as:

    // Define special, perf_events map where key maps to CPU_ID
    BPF_MAP_DEF(perfmap) = {
        .map_type = BPF_MAP_TYPE_PERF_EVENT_ARRAY,
        .max_entries = 128,     // Max supported CPUs

    // ...

    // Emit perf event with "data" to map "perfmap" where index is current CPU_ID
    bpf_perf_event_output(ctx, &perfmap, BPF_F_CURRENT_CPU, &data, sizeof(data));

And the go part:

    perf, err := goebpf.NewPerfEvents("perfmap")
    // 4096 is ring buffer size
    perfEvents, err := perf.StartForAllProcessesAndCPUs(4096)
    defer perf.Stop()

    for {
        select {
            case data := <-perfEvents:

Looks simple? Check our full XDP dump example


Library currently has support for kprobes and kretprobes. It can be as simple as:

    // kprobe handler function
    int execve_entry(struct pt_regs *ctx) {
      // ...
      return 0;

And the go part:

	// Cleanup old probes
	err := goebpf.CleanupProbes()

	// Attach all probe programs
	for _, prog := range bpf.GetPrograms() {
		err := prog.Attach(nil)

	// Create perf events
	eventsMap := p.bpf.GetMapByName("events")
	p.pe, err = goebpf.NewPerfEvents(eventsMap)
	events, err := p.pe.StartForAllProcessesAndCPUs(4096)
	defer events.Stop()

	for {
		select {
		case data := <-events:
			fmt.Println(data) // kProbe event

Package goebpf provides simple and convenient interface to Linux eBPF system.


Extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) is a highly flexible and efficient virtual machine in the Linux kernel allowing to execute bytecode at various hook points in a safe manner. It is actually close to kernel modules which can provide the same functionality, but without cost of kernel panic if something went wrong.

The library is intended to simplify work with eBPF programs. It takes care of low level routine implementation to make it easy to load/run/manage eBPF programs. Currently supported functionality: - Read / parse clang/llmv compiled binaries for eBPF programs / maps - Creates / loads eBPF program / eBPF maps into kernel - Provides simple interface to interact with eBPF maps - Has mock versions of eBPF objects (program, map, etc) in order to make writing unittests simple.


eXpress Data Path - provides a bare metal, high performance, programmable packet processing at the closest at possible point to network driver. That makes it ideal for speed without compromising programmability. Key benefits includes following:

- It does not require any specialized hardware (program works in kernel’s "VM") - It does not require kernel bypass - It does not replace the TCP/IP stack

Considering very simple and highly effective way to DROP all packets from given source IPv4 address:

XDP program (written in C):

// Simple map to count dropped packets
BPF_MAP_DEF(drops) = {
    .map_type = BPF_MAP_TYPE_PERCPU_ARRAY,
    .key_size = 4,
    .value_size = 8,
    .max_entries = 1,

int xdp_drop(struct xdp_md *ctx)
    if (found) { // If some condition (e.g. SRC IP) matches...
        __u32 idx = 0;
        // Increase stat by 1
        __u64 *stat = bpf_map_lookup_elem(&drops, &idx);
        if (stat) {
            *stat += 1;
        return XDP_DROP;
    return XDP_PASS;

Once compiled can be used by goebpf in the following way:

bpf := goebpf.NewDefaultEbpfSystem()
err := bpf.LoadElf("xdp.elf")
program := bpf.GetProgramByName("xdp_drop") // name matches function name in C
err = program.Load() // Load program into kernel
err = program.Attach("eth0") // Attach to interface
defer program.Detach()

// Interact with program is simply done through maps:
drops := bpf.GetMapByName("drops") // name also matches BPF_MAP_ADD(drops)
val, err := drops.LookupInt(0) // Get value from map at index 0
if err == nil {
    fmt.Printf("Drops: %d\n", val)


Perf Events (originally Performance Counters for Linux) is powerful kernel instrument for tracing, profiling and a lot of other cases like general events to user space.

Usually it is implemented using special eBPF map type "BPF_MAP_TYPE_PERF_EVENT_ARRAY" as a container to send events into.

A simple example could be to log all TCP SYN packets into user space from XDP program:

BPF_MAP_DEF(perfmap) = {
	.max_entries = 128,  // Up to 128 CPUs

int xdp_dump(struct xdp_md *ctx) {
	// ...
	if (tcp->syn) {
		// Log event to user space
		bpf_perf_event_output(ctx, &perfmap, BPF_F_CURRENT_CPU, &evt, sizeof(evt));

bpf := goebpf.NewDefaultEbpfSystem()
program := bpf.GetProgramByName("xdp_dump") // name matches function name in C
err = program.Load() // Load program into kernel
err = program.Attach("eth0") // Attach to interface
defer program.Detach()

// Start listening to Perf Events
perf, err := goebpf.NewPerfEvents(perfmap)
// 4096 is ring buffer size
perfEvents, err := perf.StartForAllProcessesAndCPUs(4096)
defer perf.Stop()

for {
	select {
		case eventData := <-perfEvents:


There are currently two types of supported probes: kprobes, and kretprobes (also called return probes). A kprobe can be inserted on virtually any instruction in the kernel. A return probe fires when a specified function returns.

For example, you can trigger eBPF code to run when a kernel function starts by attaching the program to a “kprobe” event. Because it runs in the kernel, eBPF code is extremely high performance.

A simple example could be to log all process execution events into user space from Kprobe program:

BPF_MAP_DEF(events) = {
	.max_entries = 1024,

int execve_entry(struct pt_regs *ctx) {
	// ...
	event_t e = {0};
	e.ktime_ns = bpf_ktime_get_ns();
	e.pid = bpf_get_current_pid_tgid() >> 32;
	e.uid = bpf_get_current_uid_gid() >> 32;
	e.gid = bpf_get_current_uid_gid();
	bpf_get_current_comm(&e.comm, sizeof(e.comm));

	buf_write(buf, (void *)&e, sizeof(e));
	buf_strcat(buf, (void *)args[0]);
	buf_strcat_argv(buf, (void *)args[1]);

	return 0;

// Cleanup old probes
err := goebpf.CleanupProbes()

// Load eBPF compiled binary
bpf := goebpf.NewDefaultEbpfSystem()
program := bpf.GetProgramByName("kprobe") // name matches function name in C

// Attach kprobes
err = p.AttachProbes()
// Detach them once done
defer p.DetachProbes()

type XdpAttachParams

type XdpAttachParams struct {
	// Interface is string name of interface to attach program to
	Interface string
	// Mode is one of XdpAttachMode.
	Mode XdpAttachMode

XdpAttachParams used to pass parameters to Attach() call.
