perf evlist: Add --trace-fields option to show trace fields
To use dynamic sort keys, it might be good to add an option to see the list of field names. $ perf evlist -i perf.data.sched sched:sched_switch sched:sched_stat_wait sched:sched_stat_sleep sched:sched_stat_iowait sched:sched_stat_runtime sched:sched_process_fork sched:sched_wakeup sched:sched_wakeup_new sched:sched_migrate_task # Tip: use 'perf evlist --trace-fields' to show fields for tracepoint events $ perf evlist -i perf.data.sched --trace-fields sched:sched_switch: trace_fields: prev_comm,prev_pid,prev_prio,prev_state,next_comm,next_pid,next_prio sched:sched_stat_wait: trace_fields: comm,pid,delay sched:sched_stat_sleep: trace_fields: comm,pid,delay sched:sched_stat_iowait: trace_fields: comm,pid,delay sched:sched_stat_runtime: trace_fields: comm,pid,runtime,vruntime sched:sched_process_fork: trace_fields: parent_comm,parent_pid,child_comm,child_pid sched:sched_wakeup: trace_fields: comm,pid,prio,success,target_cpu sched:sched_wakeup_new: trace_fields: comm,pid,prio,success,target_cpu sched:sched_migrate_task: trace_fields: comm,pid,prio,orig_cpu,dest_cpu Committer notes: For another file, in verbose mode: # perf evlist -v --trace-fields sched:sched_switch: type: 2, size: 112, config: 0x10b, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 1, sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|CPU|PERIOD|RAW, disabled: 1, inherit: 1, mmap: 1, comm: 1, task: 1, sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1, trace_fields: prev_comm,prev_pid,prev_prio,prev_state,next_comm,next_pid,next_prio # Signed-off-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Andi Kleen <andi@firstfloor.org> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1452125549-1511-5-git-send-email-namhyung@kernel.org [ Replaced 'trace_fields=' with 'trace_fields: ' to make the output consistent in -v mode ] Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
