2016-04-27perf tools: Set the maximum allowed stack from ↵Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-1/+1
/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.

2015-10-29perf script: Enable printing of branch stackStephane Eranian1-2/+12
This patch improves perf script by enabling printing of the branch stack via the 'brstack' and 'brstacksym' arguments to the field selection option -F. The option is off by default and operates only if the perf.data file has branch stack content. The branches are printed in to/from pairs. The most recent branch is printed first. The number of branch entries vary based on the underlying hardware and filtering used. The brstack prints FROM/TO addresses in raw hexadecimal format. The brstacksym prints FROM/TO addresses in symbolic form wherever possible. $ perf script -F ip,brstack 5d3000 0x401aa0/0x5d2000/M/-/-/-/0 ... $ perf script -F ip,brstacksym 4011e0 noploop+0x0/noploop+0x0/P/-/-/0 The notation F/T/M/X/A/C describes the attributes of the branch. F=from, T=to, M/P=misprediction/prediction, X=TSX, A=TSX abort, C=cycles (SKL) Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Yuanfang Chen <cyfmxc@gmail.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1441039273-16260-5-git-send-email-eranian@google.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2015-08-10perf tools: Support full source file paths for srclineAndi Kleen1-0/+3
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.

2015-04-29perf script: Add field option 'flags' to print sample flagsAdrian Hunter1-1/+8
Instruction tracing will typically have access to information about the instruction being executed for a particular ip sample. Some of that information will be available in the 'flags' member of struct perf_sample. With the addition of transactions events synthesis to Instruction Tracing options, there is a need to be able easily to see the flags because they show whether the ip is at the start, commit or abort of a tranasaction. Consequently add an option to display the flags. The flags are "bcrosyiABEx" which stand for branch, call, return, conditional, system, asynchronous, interrupt, transaction abort, trace begin, trace end, and in transaction, respectively. Example using Intel PT: perf script -fip,time,event,sym,addr,flags ... 1288.721584105: branches:u: bo 401146 main => 401152 main 1288.721584105: transactions: x 0 401164 main 1288.721584105: branches:u: bx 40117c main => 40119b main 1288.721584105: branches:u: box 4011a4 main => 40117e main 1288.721584105: branches:u: bcx 401187 main => 401094 g ... 1288.721591645: branches:u: bx 4010c4 g => 4010cb g 1288.721591645: branches:u: brx 4010cc g => 401189 main 1288.721591645: transactions: 0 4011a6 main 1288.721593199: branches:u: b 4011a9 main => 4011af main 1288.721593199: branches:u: bo 4011bc main => 40113e main 1288.721593199: branches:u: b 401150 main => 40115a main 1288.721593199: transactions: x 0 401164 main 1288.721593199: branches:u: bx 40117c main => 40119b main 1288.721593199: branches:u: box 4011a4 main => 40117e main 1288.721593199: branches:u: bcx 401187 main => 40105e f ... 1288.722284747: branches:u: brx 401093 f => 401189 main 1288.722284747: branches:u: box 4011a4 main => 40117e main 1288.722284747: branches:u: bcx 401187 main => 40105e f 1288.722285883: transactions: bA 0 401071 f 1288.722285883: branches:u: bA 401071 f => 40116a main 1288.722285883: branches:u: bE 40116a main => 0 [unknown] 1288.722297174: branches:u: bB 0 [unknown] => 40116a main ...

2011-12-23perf report: Accept fifos as input fileRobert Richter1-1/+1
The default input file for perf report is not handled the same way as perf record does it for its output file. This leads to unexpected behavior of perf report, etc. E.g.: # perf record -a -e cpu-cycles sleep 2 | perf report | cat failed to open perf.data: No such file or directory (try 'perf record' first) While perf record writes to a fifo, perf report expects perf.data to be read. This patch changes this to accept fifos as input file. Applies to the following commands: perf annotate perf buildid-list perf evlist perf kmem perf lock perf report perf sched perf script perf timechart Also fixes char const* -> const char* type declaration for filename strings. v2: * Prevent potential null pointer access to input_name in builtin-report.c.

2011-11-28perf tools: make -C consistent across commands (for cpu list arg)David Ahern1-1/+1
Currently the meaning of -C varies by perf command: for perf-top, perf-stat, perf-record it means cpu list. For perf-report it means comm list. Then perf-annotate, perf-report and perf-script use -c for cpu list. Fix annotate, report and script to use -C for cpu list to be consistent with top, stat and record. This means report needs to use -c for comm list which does introduce a backward compatibility change. v1 -> v2 - update perf-script.txt too Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1321209008-7004-1-git-send-email-dsahern@gmail.com Signed-off-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
2011-10-07perf tools: Make perf.data more self-descriptive (v8)Stephane Eranian1-0/+7
The goal of this patch is to include more information about the host environment into the perf.data so it is more self-descriptive. Overtime, profiles are captured on various machines and it becomes hard to track what was recorded, on what machine and when. This patch provides a way to solve this by extending the perf.data file with basic information about the host machine. To add those extensions, we leverage the feature bits capabilities of the perf.data format. The change is backward compatible with existing perf.data files. We define the following useful new extensions: - HEADER_HOSTNAME: the hostname - HEADER_OSRELEASE: the kernel release number - HEADER_ARCH: the hw architecture - HEADER_CPUDESC: generic CPU description - HEADER_NRCPUS: number of online/avail cpus - HEADER_CMDLINE: perf command line - HEADER_VERSION: perf version - HEADER_TOPOLOGY: cpu topology - HEADER_EVENT_DESC: full event description (attrs) - HEADER_CPUID: easy-to-parse low level CPU identication The small granularity for the entries is to make it easier to extend without breaking backward compatiblity. Many entries are provided as ASCII strings. Perf report/script have been modified to print the basic information as easy-to-parse ASCII strings. Extended information about CPU and NUMA topology may be requested with the -I option. Thanks to David Ahern for reviewing and testing the many versions of this patch. $ perf report --stdio # ======== # captured on : Mon Sep 26 15:22:14 2011 # hostname : quad # os release : 3.1.0-rc4-tip # perf version : 3.1.0-rc4 # arch : x86_64 # nrcpus online : 4 # nrcpus avail : 4 # cpudesc : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz # cpuid : GenuineIntel,6,15,11 # total memory : 8105360 kB # cmdline : /home/eranian/perfmon/official/tip/build/tools/perf/perf record date # event : name = cycles, type = 0, config = 0x0, config1 = 0x0, config2 = 0x0, excl_usr = 0, excl_kern = 0, id = { 29, 30, 31, # HEADER_CPU_TOPOLOGY info available, use -I to display # HEADER_NUMA_TOPOLOGY info available, use -I to display # ======== # ... $ perf report --stdio -I # ======== # captured on : Mon Sep 26 15:22:14 2011 # hostname : quad # os release : 3.1.0-rc4-tip # perf version : 3.1.0-rc4 # arch : x86_64 # nrcpus online : 4 # nrcpus avail : 4 # cpudesc : Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz # cpuid : GenuineIntel,6,15,11 # total memory : 8105360 kB # cmdline : /home/eranian/perfmon/official/tip/build/tools/perf/perf record date # event : name = cycles, type = 0, config = 0x0, config1 = 0x0, config2 = 0x0, excl_usr = 0, excl_kern = 0, id = { 29, 30, 31, # sibling cores : 0-3 # sibling threads : 0 # sibling threads : 1 # sibling threads : 2 # sibling threads : 3 # node0 meminfo : total = 8320608 kB, free = 7571024 kB # node0 cpu list : 0-3 # ======== # ...

2011-07-05perf report/annotate/script: Add option to specify a CPU rangeAnton Blanchard1-0/+6
Add an option to perf report/annotate/script to specify which CPUs to operate on. This enables us to take a single system wide profile and analyse each CPU (or group of CPUs) in isolation. This was useful when profiling a multiprocess workload where the bottleneck was on one CPU but this was hidden in the overall profile. Per process and per thread breakdowns didn't help because multiple processes were running on each CPU and no single process consumed an entire CPU. The patch converts the list of CPUs returned by cpu_map__new into a bitmap for fast lookup. I wanted to use -C to be consistent with perf top/record/stat, but unfortunately perf report already uses -C <comms>. v2: Incorporate suggestions from David Ahern: - Added -c to perf script - Check that SAMPLE_CPU is set when -c is used - Update documentation v3: Create perf_session__cpu_bitmap() Signed-off-by: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org> Acked-by: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20110704215750.11647eb9@kryten Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
