2016-03-03perf record: Ensure return non-zero rc when mmap failWang Nan1-1/+4
perf_evlist__mmap_ex() can fail without setting errno (for example, fail in condition checking. In this case all syscall is success). If this happen, record__open() incorrectly returns 0. Force setting rc is a quick way to avoid this problem, or we have to follow all possible code path in perf_evlist__mmap_ex() to make sure there's at least one system call before returning an error.

2016-02-22perf record: Apply config to BPF objects before recordingWang Nan1-0/+11
bpf__apply_obj_config() is introduced as the core API to apply object config options to all BPF objects. This patch also does the real work for setting values for BPF_MAP_TYPE_PERF_ARRAY maps by inserting value stored in map's private field into the BPF map. This patch is required because we are not always able to set all BPF config during parsing. Further patch will set events created by perf to BPF_MAP_TYPE_PERF_EVENT_ARRAY maps, which is not exist until perf_evsel__open(). bpf_map_foreach_key() is introduced to iterate over each key needs to be configured. This function would be extended to support more map types and different key settings. In perf record, before start recording, call bpf__apply_config() to turn on all BPF config options.

2015-12-15perf record: Add record.build-id config optionNamhyung Kim1-0/+13
Post processing at 'perf record' takes a long time on big machines. What it does is to find the build-id of binaries found in the event stream, so that it can make sure, at 'report' time, that the symtabs (be it ELF, kallsyms, etc) being used to resolve symbols are the ones matching the binaries found at 'record' time. Sometimes we just want to skip this processing of events at the end of the session to get quicker results, making sure the binaries haven't changed from 'record' to 'report' time. Add a new config option to control this behavior. The record.build-id config variable can have one of the following values: - cache: post-process data and save/update the binaries into the build-id cache (in ~/.debug). This is the default. - no-cache: post-process the data but not update the build-id cache. Same effect as using the -N option. - skip: skip post-processing and do not update the cache. Same effect as using the -B option.

2015-12-14perf record: Support custom vmlinux pathHe Kuang1-0/+16
Make perf-record command support --vmlinux option if BPF_PROLOGUE is on. 'perf record' needs vmlinux as the source of DWARF info to generate prologue for BPF programs, so path of vmlinux should be specified. Short name 'k' has been taken by 'clockid'. This patch skips the short option name and uses '--vmlinux' for vmlinux path. Documentation is also updated.

2015-12-14perf tools: Make options always available, even if required libs not linkedWang Nan1-2/+7
This patch keeps options of perf builtins same in all conditions. If one option is disabled because of compiling options, users should be notified. Masami suggested another implementation in [1] that, by adding a OPTION_NEXT_DEPENDS option before those options in the 'struct option' array, options parser knows an option is disabled. However, in some cases this array is reordered (options__order()). In addition, in parse-option.c that array is const, so we can't simply merge information in decorator option into the affacted option. This patch chooses a simpler implementation that, introducing a set_option_nobuild() function and two option parsing flags. Builtins with such options should call set_option_nobuild() before option parsing. The complexity of this patch is because we want some of options can be skipped safely. In this case their arguments should also be consumed. Options in 'perf record' and 'perf probe' are fixed in this patch.

For example, run the below commands on 32 bit powerpc: perf probe -x /lib/libc.so.6 malloc perf record -e probe_libc:malloc -a ls perf.data [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.036 MB perf.data (13829241621624967218 samples) ] Actually, "perf script" just shows 21 samples. The number of samples is also absurd since samples is long type, but it is printed as PRIu64. Build test ran on x86-64, x86, aarch64, arm, mips, ppc and ppc64.

2015-10-01perf record: Allocate area for sample_id_hdr in a synthesized comm eventNamhyung Kim1-2/+10
A previous patch added a synthesized comm event for forked child process but it missed that the event should contain area for sample_id_hdr at the end. It worked by accident since the perf_event union contains bigger event structs like mmap_events. This patch fixes it by dynamically allocating event struct including those area like in perf_event__synthesize_thread_map().

2015-09-22perf record: Synthesize COMM event for a command line workloadNamhyung Kim1-1/+14
When perf creates a new child to profile, the events are enabled on exec(). And in this case, it doesn't synthesize any event for the child since they'll be generated during exec(). But there's an window between the enabling and the event generation. It used to be overcome since samples are only in kernel (so we always have the map) and the comm is overridden by a later COMM event. However it won't work if events are processed and displayed before the COMM event overrides like in 'perf script'. This leads to those early samples (like native_write_msr_safe) not having a comm but pid (like ':15328'). So it needs to synthesize COMM event for the child explicitly before enabling so that it can have a correct comm. But at this time, the comm will be "perf" since it's not exec-ed yet.

2015-08-31perf record: Add ability to name registers to recordStephane Eranian1-2/+5
This patch modifies the -I/--int-regs option to enablepassing the name of the registers to sample on interrupt. Registers can be specified by their symbolic names. For instance on x86, --intr-regs=ax,si. The motivation is to reduce the size of the perf.data file and the overhead of sampling by only collecting the registers useful to a specific analysis. For instance, for value profiling, sampling only the registers used to passed arguements to functions. With no parameter, the --intr-regs still records all possible registers based on the architecture. To name registers, it is necessary to use the long form of the option, i.e., --intr-regs: $ perf record --intr-regs=si,di,r8,r9 ..... To record any possible registers: $ perf record -I ..... $ perf report --intr-regs ... To display the register, one can use perf report -D To list the available registers: $ perf record --intr-regs=\? available registers: AX BX CX DX SI DI BP SP IP FLAGS CS SS R8 R9 R10 R11 R12 R13 R14 R15 Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Tested-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.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> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1441039273-16260-4-git-send-email-eranian@google.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2015-07-20perf record: Allow filtering perf's pid via --exclude-perfWang Nan1-0/+3
This patch allows 'perf record' to exclude events issued by perf itself by '--exclude-perf' option. Before this patch, when doing something like: # perf record -a -e syscalls:sys_enter_write <cmd> One could easily get result like this: # /tmp/perf report --stdio ... # Overhead Command Shared Object Symbol # ........ ....... .................. .................... # 99.99% perf libpthread-2.18.so [.] __write_nocancel 0.01% ls libc-2.18.so [.] write 0.01% sshd libc-2.18.so [.] write ... Where most events are generated by perf itself. A shell trick can be done to filter perf itself out: # cat << EOF > ./tmp > #!/bin/sh > exec perf record -e ... --filter="common_pid != \$\$" -a sleep 10 > EOF # chmod a+x ./tmp # ./tmp However, doing so is user unfriendly. This patch extracts evsel iteration framework introduced by patch 'perf record: Apply filter to all events in a glob matching' into foreach_evsel_in_last_glob(), and makes exclude_perf() function append new filter expression to each evsel selected by a '-e' selector. To avoid losing filters if user pass '--filter' after '--exclude-perf', this patch uses perf_evsel__append_filter() in both case, instead of perf_evsel__set_filter() which removes old filter. As a side effect, now it is possible to use multiple '--filter' option for one selector. They are combinded with '&&'.

Add an index of AUX area tracing events within a perf.data file. perf record uses a special user event PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND to enable sorting of events in chunks instead of having to sort all events altogether. AUX area tracing events contain data that can span back to the very beginning of the recording period. i.e. they do not obey the rules of PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND. By adding an index, AUX area tracing events can be found in advance and the PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND approach works as usual. The index is recorded with the auxtrace feature in the perf.data file. A session reads the index but does not process it. An AUX area decoder can queue all the AUX area data in advance using auxtrace_queues__process_index() or otherwise process the index in some custom manner.

Right now the report support is not great, but at least report -D already supports it.

2015-02-18perf tools: Enable LBR call stack supportKan Liang1-3/+3
Currently, there are two call chain recording options, fp and dwarf. Haswell has a new feature that utilizes the existing LBR facility to record call chains. Kernel side LBR support code provides this as a third option to record call chains. This patch enables the lbr call stack support on the tooling side. LBR call stack has some limitations: - It reuses current LBR facility, so LBR call stack and branch record can not be enabled at the same time. - It is only available for user-space callchains. However, it also offers some advantages: - LBR call stack can work on user apps which don't have frame-pointers or dwarf debug info compiled. It is a good alternative when nothing else works.

2015-01-29perf record: Show precise number of samplesNamhyung Kim1-12/+39
After perf record finishes, it prints file size and number of samples in the file but this info is wrong since it assumes typical sample size of 24 bytes and divides file size by the value. However as we post-process recorded samples for build-id, it can show correct number like below. If build-id post-processing is not requested just omit the wrong number of samples. $ perf record noploop 1 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.159 MB perf.data (3989 samples) ] $ perf report --stdio -n # To display the perf.data header info, please use --header/--header-only options. # # Samples: 3K of event 'cycles' # Event count (approx.): 3771330663 # # Overhead Samples Command Shared Object Symbol # ........ ............ ....... ................ .......................... # 99.90% 3982 noploop noploop [.] main 0.09% 1 noploop ld-2.17.so [.] _dl_check_map_versions 0.01% 1 noploop [kernel.vmlinux] [k] setup_arg_pages 0.00% 5 noploop [kernel.vmlinux] [k] intel_pmu_enable_all Reported-by: Milian Wolff <mail@milianw.de> Signed-off-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Reviewed-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org> Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <andi@firstfloor.org> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1422518843-25818-4-git-send-email-namhyung@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
2015-01-29perf tools: Do not use __perf_session__process_events() directlyNamhyung Kim1-4/+3
It's only used for perf record to process build-id because its file size it's not fixed at this time due to remaining header features. However data offset and size is available so that we can use the perf_session__process_events() once we set the file size as the current offset like for now.
