2016-05-23perf report: Add srcline_from/to branch sort keysAndi Kleen1-1/+2
Add "srcline_from" and "srcline_to" branch sort keys that allow to show the source lines of a branch. That makes it much easier to track down where particular branches happen in the program, for example to examine branch mispredictions, or to associate it with cycle counts: % perf record -b -e cycles:p ./tcall % perf report --sort srcline_from,srcline_to,mispredict ... 15.10% tcall.c:18 tcall.c:10 N 14.83% tcall.c:11 tcall.c:5 N 14.12% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 N 14.04% tcall.c:12 tcall.c:5 N 12.42% tcall.c:17 tcall.c:18 N 12.39% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:13 N 12.27% tcall.c:13 tcall.c:17 N ... % perf report --sort srcline_from,srcline_to,cycles ... 17.12% tcall.c:18 tcall.c:11 1 17.01% tcall.c:12 tcall.c:6 1 16.98% tcall.c:11 tcall.c:6 1 15.91% tcall.c:17 tcall.c:18 1 6.38% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:17 7 4.80% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 8 4.21% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:17 8 2.67% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 7 2.62% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 10 2.10% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:17 9 1.58% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 6 1.44% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 5 1.38% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 9 1.06% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:17 13 1.05% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:12 4 1.01% tcall.c:7 tcall.c:17 6 Open issues: - Some kernel symbols get misresolved.

2016-05-20perf tools: Fix usage of max_stack sysctlArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-1/+1
We cannot limit processing stacks from the current value of the sysctl, as we may be processing perf.data files, possibly from other machines. Instead use the old PERF_MAX_STACK_DEPTH, the sysctl default, that can be overriden using --max-stack or equivalent.

/proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_max_stack There is an upper limit to what tooling considers a valid callchain, and it was tied to the hardcoded value in the kernel, PERF_MAX_STACK_DEPTH (127), now that this can be tuned via a sysctl, make it read it and use that as the upper limit, falling back to PERF_MAX_STACK_DEPTH for kernels where this sysctl isn't present.

It builds on top of the existing srcline support.

2015-08-10perf tools: Support full source file paths for srclineAndi Kleen1-0/+2
For perf report/script srcline currently only the base file name of the source file is printed. This is a good default because it usually fits on the screen. But in some cases we want to know the full file name, for example to aggregate hits per file. In the later case we need more than the base file name to resolve file naming collisions: for example the kernel source has ~70 files named "core.c" It's also useful as input to post processing tools which want to point to the right file. Add a flag to allow full file name output. Add an option to perf report/script to enable this option.

Add a sort key and output code for the cycles to allow to display the basic block cycles individually in perf report. We also pass in the cycles for weight when LBRs are processed, which allows to get global and local weight, to get an estimate of the total cost. And also print the cycles information for perf report -D. I also added printing for the previously missing LBR flags (mispredict etc.) Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1437233094-12844-2-git-send-email-andi@firstfloor.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2014-12-01perf callchain: Support handling complete branch stacks as histogramsAndi Kleen1-1/+6
Currently branch stacks can be only shown as edge histograms for individual branches. I never found this display particularly useful. This implements an alternative mode that creates histograms over complete branch traces, instead of individual branches, similar to how normal callgraphs are handled. This is done by putting it in front of the normal callgraph and then using the normal callgraph histogram infrastructure to unify them. This way in complex functions we can understand the control flow that lead to a particular sample, and may even see some control flow in the caller for short functions. Example (simplified, of course for such simple code this is usually not needed), please run this after the whole patchkit is in, as at this point in the patch order there is no --branch-history, that will be added in a patch after this one: tcall.c: volatile a = 10000, b = 100000, c; __attribute__((noinline)) f2() { c = a / b; } __attribute__((noinline)) f1() { f2(); f2(); } main() { int i; for (i = 0; i < 1000000; i++) f1(); } % perf record -b -g ./tsrc/tcall [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.044 MB perf.data (~1923 samples) ] % perf report --no-children --branch-history ... 54.91% tcall.c:6 [.] f2 tcall | |--65.53%-- f2 tcall.c:5 | | | |--70.83%-- f1 tcall.c:11 | | f1 tcall.c:10 | | main tcall.c:18 | | main tcall.c:18 | | main tcall.c:17 | | main tcall.c:17 | | f1 tcall.c:13 | | f1 tcall.c:13 | | f2 tcall.c:7 | | f2 tcall.c:5 | | f1 tcall.c:12 | | f1 tcall.c:12 | | f2 tcall.c:7 | | f2 tcall.c:5 | | f1 tcall.c:11 | | | --29.17%-- f1 tcall.c:12 | f1 tcall.c:12 | f2 tcall.c:7 | f2 tcall.c:5 | f1 tcall.c:11 | f1 tcall.c:10 | main tcall.c:18 | main tcall.c:18 | main tcall.c:17 | main tcall.c:17 | f1 tcall.c:13 | f1 tcall.c:13 | f2 tcall.c:7 | f2 tcall.c:5 | f1 tcall.c:12 The default output is unchanged. This is only implemented in perf report, no change to record or anywhere else. This adds the basic code to report: - add a new "branch" option to the -g option parser to enable this mode - when the flag is set include the LBR into the callstack in machine.c. The rest of the history code is unchanged and doesn't know the difference between LBR entry and normal call entry. - detect overlaps with the callchain - remove small loop duplicates in the LBR Current limitations: - The LBR flags (mispredict etc.) are not shown in the history and LBR entries have no special marker. - It would be nice if annotate marked the LBR entries somehow (e.g. with arrows) v2: Various fixes. v3: Merge further patches into this one. Fix white space. v4: Improve manpage. Address review feedback. v5: Rename functions. Better error message without -g. Fix crash without -b. v6: Rebase v7: Rebase. Use NO_ENTRY in memset. v8: Port to latest tip. Move add_callchain_ip to separate patch. Skip initial entries in callchain. Minor cleanups.

2014-06-09perf tools: Add dcacheline sortDon Zickus1-1/+2
In perf's 'mem-mode', one can get access to a whole bunch of details specific to a particular sample instruction. A bunch of those details relate to the data address. One interesting thing you can do with data addresses is to convert them into a unique cacheline they belong too. Organizing these data cachelines into similar groups and sorting them can reveal cache contention. This patch creates an alogorithm based on various sample details that can help group entries together into data cachelines and allows 'perf report' to sort on it. The algorithm relies on having proper mmap2 support in the kernel to help determine if the memory map the data address belongs to is private to a pid or globally shared. The alogortithm is as follows: o group cpumodes together o group entries with discovered maps together o sort on major, minor, inode and inode generation numbers o if userspace anon, then sort on pid o sort on cachelines based on data addresses The 'dcacheline' sort option in 'perf report' only works in 'mem-mode'. Sample output: # # Samples: 206 of event 'cpu/mem-loads/pp' # Total weight : 2534 # Sort order : dcacheline,pid # # Overhead Samples Data Cacheline Command: Pid # ........ ............ ...................................................................... .................. # 13.22% 1 [k] 0xffff88042f08ebc0 swapper: 0 9.27% 1 [k] 0xffff88082e8cea80 swapper: 0 3.59% 2 [k] 0xffffffff819ba180 swapper: 0 0.32% 1 [k] arch_trigger_all_cpu_backtrace_handler_na.23901+0xffffffffffffffe0 swapper: 0 0.32% 1 [k] timekeeper_seq+0xfffffffffffffff8 swapper: 0 Note: Added a '+1' to symlen size in hists__calc_col_len to prevent the next column from prematurely tabbing over and mis-aligning.

2013-10-21perf report: Add --max-stack option to limit callchain stack scanWaiman Long1-0/+8
When callgraph data was included in the perf data file, it may take a long time to scan all those data and merge them together especially if the stored callchains are long and the perf data file itself is large, like a Gbyte or so. The callchain stack is currently limited to PERF_MAX_STACK_DEPTH (127). This is a large value. Usually the callgraph data that developers are most interested in are the first few levels, the rests are usually not looked at. This patch adds a new --max-stack option to perf-report to limit the depth of callchain stack data to look at to reduce the time it takes for perf-report to finish its processing. It trades the presence of trailing stack information with faster speed. The following table shows the elapsed time of doing perf-report on a perf.data file of size 985,531,828 bytes. --max_stack Elapsed Time Output data size ----------- ------------ ---------------- not set 88.0s 124,422,651 64 87.5s 116,303,213 32 87.2s 112,023,804 16 86.6s 94,326,380 8 59.9s 33,697,248 4 40.7s 10,116,637 -g none 27.1s 2,555,810 Signed-off-by: Waiman Long <Waiman.Long@hp.com> Acked-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Aswin Chandramouleeswaran <aswin@hp.com> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@redhat.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Scott J Norton <scott.norton@hp.com> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1382107129-2010-4-git-send-email-Waiman.Long@hp.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

With programs with very large functions it can be useful to distinguish the callgraph nodes on more than just function names. So for example if you have multiple calls to the same function, it ends up being separate nodes in the chain. This patch adds a new key field to the callgraph options, that allows comparing nodes on functions (as today, default) and addresses. Longer term it would be nice to also handle src lines, but that would need more changes and address is a reasonable proxy for it today. I right now reference the global params, as there was no simple way to register a params pointer.

2012-09-05perf tools: Allow user to indicate path to objdump in command lineMaciek Borzecki1-0/+3
When analyzing perf data from hosts of other architecture than one of the local host it's useful to call objdump that is part of a toolchain for that architecture. Instead of calling regular objdump, call one that user specified in command line.
