2016-04-28perf record: Disable buildid cache options by default in switch output modeWang Nan1-1/+1
The cost of buildid cache processing is high: reading all events in output perf.data, opening each elf file to read buildids then copying them into ~/.debug directory. In switch output mode, these heavy works block perf from receiving perf events for too long. Enable no-buildid and no-buildid-cache by default if --switch-output is provided. Still allow user use --no-no-buildid to explicitly enable buildid in this case.

2016-04-28perf record: Force enable --timestamp-filename when --switch-output is providedWang Nan1-0/+5
Without this patch, the last output doesn't have timestamp appended if --timestamp-filename is not explicitly provided. For example: # perf record -a --switch-output & [1] 11224 # kill -s SIGUSR2 11224 [ perf record: dump data: Woken up 1 times ] # [ perf record: Dump perf.data.2015122622372823 ] # fg perf record -a --switch-output ^C[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.027 MB perf.data (540 samples) ] # ls -l total 836 -rw------- 1 root root 33256 Dec 26 22:37 perf.data <---- *Odd* -rw------- 1 root root 817156 Dec 26 22:37 perf.data.2015122622372823 Signed-off-by: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Masami Hiramatsu <mhiramat@kernel.org> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Zefan Li <lizefan@huawei.com> Cc: pi3orama@163.com Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1461178794-40467-5-git-send-email-wangnan0@huawei.com Signed-off-by: He Kuang <hekuang@huawei.com> [ Updated man page, that also got an entry for --timestamp-filename ] Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
2016-04-28perf record: Split output into multiple files via '--switch-output'Wang Nan1-0/+8

2016-04-27perf tools: Set the maximum allowed stack from ↵Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo4-4/+4
/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.

2016-04-15perf trace: Make --(min,max}-stack imply "--call-graph dwarf"Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+6
If one uses: # perf trace --min-stack 16 Then it implicitly means that callgraphs should be enabled, and the best option in terms of widespread availability is "dwarf". Further work needed to choose a better alternative, LBR, in capable systems.

Counterpart to --max-stack, to help focusing on deeply nested calls. Can be combined with --duration, etc. E.g.: System wide syscall tracing looking for call stacks longer than 66: # trace --mmap-pages 32768 --filter-pid 2711 --call-graph dwarf,16384 --min-stack 66 Or more compactly: # trace -m 32768 --filt 2711 --call dwarf,16384 --min-st 66 363.027 ( 0.002 ms): gnome-shell/2287 poll(ufds: 0x7ffc5ea24230, nfds: 1, timeout_msecs: 4294967295 ) = 1 [0xf6fdd]

2016-04-11perf trace: Add support for printing call chains on sys_exit events.Milian Wolff1-0/+6
Now, one can print the call chain for every encountered sys_exit event, e.g.: $ perf trace -e nanosleep --call-graph dwarf path/to/ex_sleep 1005.757 (1000.090 ms): ex_sleep/13167 nanosleep(...) = 0 syscall_slow_exit_work ([kernel.kallsyms]) syscall_return_slowpath ([kernel.kallsyms]) int_ret_from_sys_call ([kernel.kallsyms]) __nanosleep (/usr/lib/libc-2.23.so) [unknown] (/usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5.6.0) QThread::sleep (/usr/lib/libQt5Core.so.5.6.0) main (path/to/ex_sleep) __libc_start_main (/usr/lib/libc-2.23.so) _start (path/to/ex_sleep) Note that it is advised to increase the number of mmap pages to prevent event losses when using this new feature. Often, adding `-m 10M` to the `perf trace` invocation is enough. This feature is also available in strace when built with libunwind via `strace -k`. Performance wise, this solution is much better: $ time find path/to/linux &> /dev/null real 0m0.051s user 0m0.013s sys 0m0.037s $ time perf trace -m 800M --call-graph dwarf find path/to/linux &> /dev/null real 0m2.624s user 0m1.203s sys 0m1.333s $ time strace -k find path/to/linux &> /dev/null real 0m35.398s user 0m10.403s sys 0m23.173s Note that it is currently not possible to configure the print output. Adding such a feature, similar to what is available in `perf script` via its `--fields` knob can be added later on.

2016-03-30perf tools: Add support for skipping itrace instructionsAndi Kleen2-0/+15
When using 'perf script' to look at PT traces it is often useful to ignore the initialization code at the beginning. On larger traces which may have many millions of instructions in initialization code doing that in a pipeline can be very slow, with perf script spending a lot of CPU time calling printf and writing data. This patch adds an extension to the --itrace argument that skips 'n' events (instructions, branches or transactions) at the beginning. This is much more efficient. v2: Add support for BTS (Adrian Hunter) Document in itrace.txt Fix branch check Check transactions and instructions too Committer note: To test intel_pt one needs to make sure VT-x isn't active, i.e. stopping KVM guests on the test machine, as described by Andi Kleen at http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20160301234953.GD23621@tassilo.jf.intel.com Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1459187142-20035-1-git-send-email-andi@firstfloor.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2016-03-10perf stat: Implement --metric-only modeAndi Kleen1-0/+4
Add a new mode to only print metrics. Sometimes we don't care about the raw values, just want the computed metrics. This allows more compact printing, so with -I each sample is only a single line. This also allows easier plotting and processing with other tools. The main target is with using --topdown, but it also works with -T and standard perf stat. A few metrics are not supported. To avoiding having to hardcode all the metrics in the code it uses a two pass approach: first compute dummy metrics and only print the headers in the print_metric callback. Then use the callback to print the actual values. There are some additional changes in the stat printout code to handle all metrics being on a single line. One issue is that the column code doesn't know in advance what events are not supported by the CPU, and it would be hard to find out as this could change based on dynamic conditions. That causes empty columns in some cases. The output can be fairly wide, often you may need more than 80 columns. Example: % perf stat -a -I 1000 --metric-only 1.001452803 frontend cycles idle insn per cycle stalled cycles per insn branch-misses of all branches 1.001452803 158.91% 0.66 2.39 2.92% 2.002192321 180.63% 0.76 2.08 2.96% 3.003088282 150.59% 0.62 2.57 2.84% 4.004369835 196.20% 0.98 1.62 3.79% 5.005227314 231.98% 0.84 1.90 4.71% v2: Lots of updates. v3: Use slightly narrower columns v4: Add comment Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1457049458-28956-6-git-send-email-andi@firstfloor.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2016-02-18perf record: Add --all-user/--all-kernel optionsJiri Olsa1-0/+6
Allow user to easily switch all events to user or kernel space with simple --all-user or --all-kernel options. This will be handy within perf mem/c2c wrappers to switch easily monitoring modes. Committer note: Testing it: # perf record --all-kernel --all-user -a sleep 2 Error: option `all-user' cannot be used with all-kernel Usage: perf record [<options>] [<command>] or: perf record [<options>] -- <command> [<options>] --all-user Configure all used events to run in user space. --all-kernel Configure all used events to run in kernel space. # perf record --all-user --all-kernel -a sleep 2 Error: option `all-kernel' cannot be used with all-user Usage: perf record [<options>] [<command>] or: perf record [<options>] -- <command> [<options>] --all-kernel Configure all used events to run in kernel space. --all-user Configure all used events to run in user space. # perf record --all-user -a sleep 1 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 1.416 MB perf.data (162 samples) ] # perf report | grep '\[k\]' # perf record --all-kernel -a sleep 1 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 1.423 MB perf.data (296 samples) ] # perf report | grep '\[\.\]' # Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1455525293-8671-2-git-send-email-jolsa@kernel.org [ Made those options to be mutually exclusive ] Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2016-02-05perf inject: Add jitdump mmap injection supportStephane Eranian1-0/+7
This patch adds a --jit/-j option to perf inject. This options injects MMAP records into the perf.data file to cover the jitted code mmaps. It also emits ELF images for each function in the jidump file. Those images are created where the jitdump file is. The MMAP records point to that location as well. Typical flow: $ perf record -k mono -- java -agentpath:libpjvmti.so java_class $ perf inject --jit -i perf.data -o perf.data.jitted $ perf report -i perf.data.jitted Note that jitdump.h support is not limited to Java, it works with any jitted environment modified to emit the jitdump file format, include those where code can be jitted multiple times and moved around. The jitdump.h format is adapted from the Oprofile project. The genelf.c (ELF binary generation) depends on MD5 hash encoding for the buildid. To enable this, libssl-dev must be installed. If not, then genelf.c defaults to using urandom to generate the buildid, which is not ideal. The Makefile auto-detects the presence on libssl-dev. This version mmaps the jitdump file to create a marker MMAP record in the perf.data file. The marker is used to detect jitdump and cause perf inject to inject the jitted mmaps and generate ELF images for jitted functions. In V8, the following fixes and changes were made among other things: - the jidump header format include a new flags field to be used to carry information about the configuration of the runtime agent. Contributed by: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> - Fix mmap pgoff: MMAP event pgoff must be the offset within the ELF file at which the code resides. Contributed by: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> - Fix ELF virtual addresses: perf tools expect the ELF virtual addresses of dynamic objects to match the file offset. Contributed by: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> - JIT MMAP injection does not obey finished_round semantics. JIT MMAP injection injects all MMAP events in one go, so it does not obey finished_round semantics, so drop the finished_round events from the output perf.data file.
