perf data: Add perf data to CTF conversion support
Adding 'perf data convert' to convert perf data file into different format. This patch adds support for CTF format conversion. To convert perf.data into CTF run: $ perf data convert --to-ctf=./ctf-data/ [ perf data convert: Converted 'perf.data' into CTF data './ctf-data/' ] [ perf data convert: Converted and wrote 11.268 MB (100230 samples) ] The command will create CTF metadata out of perf.data file (or one specified via -i option) and then convert all sample events into single CTF stream. Each sample_type bit is translated into separated CTF event field apart from following exceptions: PERF_SAMPLE_RAW - added in next patch PERF_SAMPLE_READ - TODO PERF_SAMPLE_CALLCHAIN - TODO PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_STACK - TODO PERF_SAMPLE_REGS_USER - TODO PERF_SAMPLE_STACK_USER - TODO $ perf --debug=data-convert=2 data convert ... The converted CTF data could be analyzed by CTF tools, like babletrace or tracecompass [1]. $ babeltrace ./ctf-data/ [03:19:13.962125533] (+?.?????????) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8105443A, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 1 } [03:19:13.962130001] (+0.000004468) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8105443A, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 1 } [03:19:13.962131936] (+0.000001935) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8105443A, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 8 } [03:19:13.962133732] (+0.000001796) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8105443A, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 114 } [03:19:13.962135557] (+0.000001825) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8105443A, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 2087 } [03:19:13.962137627] (+0.000002070) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF81361938, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 37582 } [03:19:13.962161091] (+0.000023464) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF8124218F, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 600246 } [03:19:13.962517569] (+0.000356478) cycles: { }, { ip = 0xFFFFFFFF811A75DB, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 1325731 } [03:19:13.969518008] (+0.007000439) cycles: { }, { ip = 0x34080917B2, tid = 20714, pid = 20714, period = 1144298 } The following members to the ctf-environment were decided to be added to distinguish and specify perf CTF data: - domain It says "kernel" because it contains a kernel trace (not to be confused with a user space like lttng-ust does) - tracer_name It says perf. This can be used to distinguish between lttng and perf CTF based trace. - version The kernel version from stream. In addition to release, this is what it looks like on a Debian kernel: release = "3.14-1-amd64"; version = "3.14.0"; [1] http://projects.eclipse.org/projects/tools.tracecompass Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Acked-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Jeremie Galarneau <jgalar@efficios.com> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de> Cc: Tom Zanussi <tzanussi@gmail.com> Cc: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1424470628-5969-4-git-send-email-jolsa@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
