perf stat: add perf stat -B to pretty print large numbers
It is hard to read very large numbers so provide an option to perf stat to separate thousands using a separator. The patch leverages the locale support of stdio. You need to set your LC_NUMERIC appropriately, for instance LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF8. You need to pass -B to activate this feature. This way existing scripts parsing the output do not need to be changed. Here is an example. $ perf stat noploop 2 noploop for 2 seconds Performance counter stats for 'noploop 2': 1998.347031 task-clock-msecs # 0.998 CPUs 61 context-switches # 0.000 M/sec 0 CPU-migrations # 0.000 M/sec 118 page-faults # 0.000 M/sec 4,138,410,900 cycles # 2070.917 M/sec (scaled from 70.01%) 2,062,650,268 instructions # 0.498 IPC (scaled from 70.01%) 2,057,653,466 branches # 1029.678 M/sec (scaled from 70.01%) 40,267 branch-misses # 0.002 % (scaled from 30.04%) 2,055,961,348 cache-references # 1028.831 M/sec (scaled from 30.03%) 53,725 cache-misses # 0.027 M/sec (scaled from 30.02%) 2.001393933 seconds time elapsed $ perf stat -B noploop 2 noploop for 2 seconds Performance counter stats for 'noploop 2': 1998.297883 task-clock-msecs # 0.998 CPUs 59 context-switches # 0.000 M/sec 0 CPU-migrations # 0.000 M/sec 119 page-faults # 0.000 M/sec 4,131,380,160 cycles # 2067.450 M/sec (scaled from 70.01%) 2,059,096,507 instructions # 0.498 IPC (scaled from 70.01%) 2,054,681,303 branches # 1028.216 M/sec (scaled from 70.01%) 25,650 branch-misses # 0.001 % (scaled from 30.05%) 2,056,283,014 cache-references # 1029.017 M/sec (scaled from 30.03%) 47,097 cache-misses # 0.024 M/sec (scaled from 30.02%) 2.001391016 seconds time elapsed Cc: David S.
