perf python: Support the PERF_RECORD_SWITCH event
To test it check tools/perf/python/twatch.py, after following the instructions there to enable context_switch, output looks like: [root@zoo linux]# tools/perf/python/twatch.py cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 2, pid: 31463, tid: 31496 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31496, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 2, pid: 31463, tid: 31496 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31496, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 3, pid: 31463, tid: 31527 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31527, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 3, pid: 31463, tid: 31527 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31527, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 0 } ^CTraceback (most recent call last): File "tools/perf/python/twatch.py", line 67, in <module> main(context_switch = 1, thread = 31463) File "tools/perf/python/twatch.py", line 40, in main evlist.poll(timeout = -1) KeyboardInterrupt [root@zoo linux]# Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Guy Streeter <streeter@redhat.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Cc: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/n/tip-1ukistmpamc5z717k80ctcp2@git.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
