2011-12-23perf script: Add generic perl handler to process eventsRobert Richter
The current perf scripting facility only supports tracepoints. This patch implements a generic perl handler to support other events than tracepoints too. This patch introduces a function process_event() that is called by perf for each sample. The function is called with byte streams as arguments containing information about the event, its attributes, the sample and raw data. Perl's unpack() function can easily be used for byte decoding. The following is the default implementation for process_event() that can also be generated with perf script: # Packed byte string args of process_event(): # # $event: union perf_event util/event.h # $attr: struct perf_event_attr linux/perf_event.h # $sample: struct perf_sample util/event.h # $raw_data: perf_sample->raw_data util/event.h sub process_event { my ($event, $attr, $sample, $raw_data) = @_; my @event = unpack("LSS", $event); my @attr = unpack("LLQQQQQLLQQ", $attr); my @sample = unpack("QLLQQQQQLL", $sample); my @raw_data = unpack("C*", $raw_data); use Data::Dumper; print Dumper \@event, \@attr, \@sample, \@raw_data; } Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1323969824-9711-4-git-send-email-robert.richter@amd.com Signed-off-by: Robert Richter <robert.richter@amd.com> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2011-12-23perf tools: Unify handling of features when writing feature sectionRobert Richter
The features HEADER_TRACE_INFO and HEADER_BUILD_ID are handled different when writing the feature section. All other features are simply disabled on failure and writing the section goes on without returning an error. There is no reason for these special cases. This patch unifies handling of the features. This should be ok since all features can be parsed independently. Offset and size of a feature's block is stored in struct perf_file_ section right after the data block of perf.data (see perf_session__ write_header()). Thus, if a feature does not exist then other features can be processed anyway. Also moving special code for HEADER_BUILD_ID out to write_build_id(). v2: * perf record throws an error now if buildids may not be generated, which can be disabled with the --no-buildid option.

2011-12-23perf report: Accept fifos as input fileRobert Richter
The default input file for perf report is not handled the same way as perf record does it for its output file. This leads to unexpected behavior of perf report, etc. E.g.: # perf record -a -e cpu-cycles sleep 2 | perf report | cat failed to open perf.data: No such file or directory (try 'perf record' first) While perf record writes to a fifo, perf report expects perf.data to be read. This patch changes this to accept fifos as input file. Applies to the following commands: perf annotate perf buildid-list perf evlist perf kmem perf lock perf report perf sched perf script perf timechart Also fixes char const* -> const char* type declaration for filename strings. v2: * Prevent potential null pointer access to input_name in builtin-report.c.

2011-12-23perf tools: Fix comm for processes with named threadsDavid Ahern
perf does not properly handle monitoring of processes with named threads. For example: $ ps -C myapp -L PID LWP TTY TIME CMD 25118 25118 ? 00:00:00 myapp 25118 25119 ? 00:00:00 myapp:worker perf record -e cs -c 1 -fo /tmp/perf.data -p 25118 -- sleep 10 perf report --stdio -i /tmp/perf.data 100.00% myapp:worker [kernel.kallsyms] [k] perf_event_task_sched_out The process name is set to the name of the last thread it finds for the process. The Problem: perf-top and perf-record both create a thread_map of threads to be monitored. That map is used in perf_event__synthesize_thread_map which loops over the entries in thread_map and calls __event__synthesize_thread to generate COMM and MMAP events. __event__synthesize_thread calls perf_event__synthesize_comm which opens /proc/pid/status, reads the name of the task and its thread group id. That's all fine. The problem is that it then reads /proc/pid/task and generates COMM events for each task it finds - but using the name found in /proc/pid/status where pid is the thread of interest. The end result (looping over thread_map + synthesizing comm events for each thread each time) means the name of the last thread processed sets the name for all threads in the process - which is not good for multithreaded processes with named threads. The Fix: perf_event__synthesize_comm has an input argument (full) that decides whether to process task entries for each pid it is passed. It currently never set to 0 (perf_event__synthesize_comm has a single caller and it always passes the value 1). Let's fix that. Add the full input argument to __event__synthesize_thread which passes it to perf_event__synthesize_comm. For thread/process monitoring set full to 0 which means COMM and MMAP events are only generated for the pid passed to it. For system wide monitoring set full to 1 so that COMM events are generated for all threads in a process.

2011-12-20perf record: Add ability to record event periodAndrew Vagin
The problem is that when SAMPLE_PERIOD is not set, the kernel generates a number of samples in proportion to an event's period. Number of these samples may be too big and the kernel throttles all samples above a defined limit. E.g.: I want to trace when a process sleeps. I created a process which sleeps for 1ms and for 4ms. perf got 100 events in both cases. swapper 0 [000] 1141.371830: sched_stat_sleep: comm=foo pid=1801 delay=1386750 [ns] swapper 0 [000] 1141.369444: sched_stat_sleep: comm=foo pid=1801 delay=4499585 [ns] In the first case a kernel want to send 4499585 events and in the second case it wants to send 1386750 events. perf-reports shows that process sleeps in both places equal time. Instead of this we can get only one sample with an attribute period. As result we have less data transferring between kernel and user-space and we avoid throttling of samples. The patch "events: Don't divide events if it has field period" added a kernel part of this functionality.

2011-12-12perf script: Implement option for system-wide profilingRobert Richter
The option is documented in man perf-script but was not yet implemented: -a Force system-wide collection. Scripts run without a <command> normally use -a by default, while scripts run with a <command> normally don't - this option allows the latter to be run in system-wide mode. As with perf record you now can profile in system-wide mode for the runtime of a given command, e.g.: # perf script -a syscall-counts sleep 2 Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1322229925-10075-1-git-send-email-robert.richter@amd.com Signed-off-by: Robert Richter <robert.richter@amd.com> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2011-12-05perf: Fix parsing of __print_flags() in TP_printk()Steven Rostedt
A update is made to the sched:sched_switch event that adds some logic to the first parameter of the __print_flags() that shows the state of tasks. This change cause perf to fail parsing the flags. A simple fix is needed to have the parser be able to process ops within the argument.

2011-12-05perf stat: Failure with "Operation not supported"Anton Blanchard
perf stat is failing on PowerPC: Error: open_counter returned with 95 (Operation not supported). /bin/dmesg may provide additional information. Fatal: Not all events could be opened. commit 370faf1dd046 (perf stat: Fail softly on unsupported events) added a check for failure returning ENOENT, but the POWER backend returns EOPNOTSUPP. It looks like alpha, blackfin and mips do the same.

2011-12-02perf test: Validate PERF_RECORD_ events and perf_sample fieldsArnaldo Carvalho de Melo
This new test will validate these new routines extracted from 'perf record': - perf_evlist__config_attrs - perf_evlist__prepare_workload - perf_evlist__start_workload In addition to several other perf_evlist methods. It consists of starting a simple workload, setting up just one event to monitor ("cycles") requesting that several PERF_SAMPLE_ fields be present in all events. It then will check that the expected PERF_RECORD_ events are produced and will sanity check all its fields. Some checks performed: . PERF_SAMPLE_TIME monotonically increases. . PERF_SAMPLE_CPU is the one requested with sched_setaffinity . PERF_SAMPLE_TID and PERF_SAMPLE_PID matches the one we forked in perf_evlist__prepare_workload and that is stored in evlist->workload.pid . For the events where these fields are also present in its pre-sample_id_all fields (e.g. event->mmap.pid), that they are what is expected too. . That we get a bunch of mmaps: PATH/libcSUFFIX PATH/ldSUFFIX [vdso] PATH/sleep Example: [root@emilia ~]# taskset -c 3,4 perf test -v1 perf_sample 6: Validate PERF_RECORD_* events & perf_sample fields: --- start --- 7159480799825 3 PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE 7159480805584 3 PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE 7159480807814 3 PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE 7159480810430 3 PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE 7159480861511 3 PERF_RECORD_MMAP 8086/8086: [0x7fffffffd000(0x2000) @ 0x7fffffffd000]: //anon 7159481052516 3 PERF_RECORD_COMM: sleep:8086 7159481070188 3 PERF_RECORD_MMAP 8086/8086: [0x400000(0x6000) @ 0]: /bin/sleep 7159481077104 3 PERF_RECORD_MMAP 8086/8086: [0x3d06400000(0x221000) @ 0]: /lib64/ld-2.12.so 7159481092912 3 PERF_RECORD_MMAP 8086/8086: [0x7fff1adff000(0x1000) @ 0x7fff1adff000]: [vdso] 7159481196779 3 PERF_RECORD_MMAP 8086/8086: [0x3d06800000(0x37f000) @ 0]: /lib64/libc-2.12.so 7160481558435 3 PERF_RECORD_EXIT(8086:8086):(8086:8086) ---- end ---- Validate PERF_RECORD_* events & perf_sample fields: Ok [root@emilia ~]# Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/n/tip-svag18v2z4idas0dyz3umjpq@git.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
