Tools for Bluetooth®

Debug Tools
Reference Operating System for IoT includes various widely used debug tools for Bluetooth® :
  • hcitool
  • hciconfig
  • hcidump
  • btmon
These tools provide the --help option about usage. Also, there are many resources available publicly to help you use these tools.
Note
: sdptool doesn't work well with bluez5. Use the following workaround:
Open the file
/
lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service
and change the
ExecStart
line to the following:
ExecStart=/usr/libexec/bluetooth/bluetoothd
--compat
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl restart Bluetooth
