perf tools: Enhance parsing events tracepoint error output
Enhancing parsing events tracepoint error output. Adding more verbose output when the tracepoint is not found or the tracing event path cannot be access. $ sudo perf record -e sched:sched_krava ls event syntax error: 'sched:sched_krava' \___ unknown tracepoint Error: File /sys/kernel/debug/tracing//tracing/events/sched/sched_krava not found. Hint: Perhaps this kernel misses some CONFIG_ setting to enable this feature?. Run 'perf list' for a list of valid events ... $ perf record -e sched:sched_krava ls event syntax error: 'sched:sched_krava' \___ can't access trace events Error: No permissions to read /sys/kernel/debug/tracing//tracing/events/sched/sched_krava Hint: Try 'sudo mount -o remount,mode=755 /sys/kernel/debug' Run 'perf list' for a list of valid events ...
