perf script: Add support for H/W and S/W events
Custom fields set for each type by prepending field argument with type. For file with multiple event types (e.g., trace and S/W) display of an event type suppressed by setting output fields to "". e.g., perf record -ga -e sched:sched_switch -e cpu-clock -c 10000000 -R -- sleep 1 perf script openssl 11496 [000] 9711.807107: cpu-clock-msecs: ffffffff810c22dc arch_local_irq_restore ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff810c518c __alloc_pages_nodemask ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff810297b2 pte_alloc_one ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff810d8b98 __pte_alloc ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff810daf07 handle_mm_fault ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff8138763a do_page_fault ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff81384a65 page_fault ([kernel.kallsyms]) 7f6130507d70 asn1_check_tlen (/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.0c) 0 () openssl 11496 [000] 9711.808042: sched_switch: prev_comm=openssl ... kworker/0:0 4 [000] 9711.808067: sched_switch: prev_comm=kworker/... swapper 0 [001] 9711.808090: sched_switch: prev_comm=kworker/... sshd 11451 [001] 9711.808185: sched_switch: prev_comm=sshd pre... swapper 0 [001] 9711.816155: cpu-clock-msecs: ffffffff81023609 native_safe_halt ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff8100132a cpu_idle ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff8137cf9b start_secondary ([kernel.kallsyms]) openssl 11496 [000] 9711.817104: cpu-clock-msecs: 7f61304ad723 AES_cbc_encrypt (/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.0c) 7fff3402f950 () 12f0debc9a785634 () swapper 0 [001] 9711.826155: cpu-clock-msecs: ffffffff81023609 native_safe_halt ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff8100132a cpu_idle ([kernel.kallsyms]) ffffffff8137cf9b start_secondary ([kernel.kallsyms]) To suppress trace events within the file and use default output for S/W events: perf script -f trace: or to suppress S/W events and do default display for trace events: perf script -f sw: Custom field selections: perf script -f sw:comm,tid,time -f trace:time,trace openssl 11496 9711.797162: swapper 0 9711.807071: openssl 11496 9711.807107: 9711.808042: prev_comm=openssl prev_pid=11496 prev_prio=120 prev_state=R ... 9711.808067: prev_comm=kworker/0:0 prev_pid=4 prev_prio=120 prev_state=S ... 9711.808090: prev_comm=kworker/0:0 prev_pid=0 prev_prio=120 prev_state=R ... 9711.808185: prev_comm=sshd prev_pid=11451 prev_prio=120 prev_state=S ==>... swapper 0 9711.816155: openssl 11496 9711.817104: swapper 0 9711.826155: Acked-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> LKML-Reference: <1299734608-5223-7-git-send-email-daahern@cisco.com> Signed-off-by: David Ahern <daahern@cisco.com> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
