2016-01-08perf tools: Do not show trace command if it's not compiled inJiri Olsa1-1/+1
The trace command still appears in help message when you run simple 'perf' command. It's because the generate-cmdlist.sh does not care about the HAVE_LIBAUDIT_SUPPORT dependency of trace command and puts it into generated common_cmds array. Wrapping trace command under HAVE_LIBAUDIT_SUPPORT dependency, which will exclude it from common_cmds array if HAVE_LIBAUDIT_SUPPORT is not set.

2015-11-23perf tools: Add 'perf config' commandTaeung Song1-0/+1
The perf configuration file contains many variables to change various aspects of each of its tools, including output, disk usage, etc. But looking at the state of configuration is difficult and there's no documentation about config variables except for the variables in perfconfig.example exist. So this patch adds a 'perf-config' command with a '--list' option. perf config [options] display current perf config variables. # perf config -l | --list Signed-off-by: Taeung Song <treeze.taeung@gmail.com> Acked-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1447768424-17327-1-git-send-email-treeze.taeung@gmail.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

2012-09-26perf trace: New toolArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+1
Initially should look loosely like the venerable 'strace' tool, but using the infrastructure in the perf tools to allow tracing extra targets: [acme@sandy linux]$ perf trace --hell Error: unknown option `hell' usage: perf trace <PID> -p, --pid <pid> trace events on existing process id --tid <tid> trace events on existing thread id --all-cpus system-wide collection from all CPUs --cpu <cpu> list of cpus to monitor --no-inherit child tasks do not inherit counters --mmap-pages <n> number of mmap data pages --uid <user> user to profile [acme@sandy linux]$ Those should have the same semantics as when using with 'perf record'. It gets stuck sometimes, but hey, it works sometimes too! In time it should support perf.data based workloads, i.e. it should have a: -o filename Command line option that will produce a perf.data file that can then be used with 'perf trace' or any of the other perf tools (script, report, etc). It will also eventually have the set of functionalities described in the previous 'trace' prototype by Thomas Gleixner: "Announcing a new utility: 'trace'" http://lwn.net/Articles/415728/ Also planned is to have some of the features suggested in the comments of that LWN article.

2012-08-09perf symbols: Support minimal build without libelfNamhyung Kim1-1/+1
Now we have isolated all ELF-specific stuff, it's possible to build without libelf. The output binary can do most of jobs but lacks (user level) symbol information - kernel symbols are still accessable thanks to the kallsyms. To build perf without libelf (elfutils), give NO_LIBELF=1 to make. For now, only 'perf probe' command is removed since it depends on libelf/libdw heavily.

2010-04-29perf test: Initial regression testing commandArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+1
First an example with the first internal test: [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf test 1: vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: Ok So it run just one test, that is "vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms", and it was successful. If we run it in verbose mode, we'll see details about errors and extra warnings for non-fatal problems: [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf test -v 1: vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: --- start --- Looking at the vmlinux_path (5 entries long) No build_id in vmlinux, ignoring it No build_id in /boot/vmlinux, ignoring it No build_id in /boot/vmlinux-2.6.34-rc4-tip+, ignoring it Using /lib/modules/2.6.34-rc4-tip+/build/vmlinux for symbols Maps only in vmlinux: ffffffff81cb81b1-ffffffff81e1149b 0 [kernel].init.text ffffffff81e1149c-ffffffff9fffffff 0 [kernel].exit.text ffffffffff600000-ffffffffff6000ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_0 ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_fn ffffffffff600400-ffffffffff6007ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_1 ffffffffff600800-ffffffffffffffff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_2 Maps in vmlinux with a different name in kallsyms: ffffffffff600000-ffffffffff6000ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_0 in kallsyms as [kernel].0 ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_fn in kallsyms as: *ffffffffff600100-ffffffffff60012f 0 [kernel].2 ffffffffff600400-ffffffffff6007ff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_1 in kallsyms as [kernel].6 ffffffffff600800-ffffffffffffffff 0 [kernel].vsyscall_2 in kallsyms as [kernel].8 Maps only in kallsyms: ffffffffff600130-ffffffffff6003ff 0 [kernel].4 ---- end ---- vmlinux symtab matches kallsyms: Ok [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ In the above case we only know the name of the non contiguous kernel ranges in the address space when reading the symbol information from the ELF symtab in vmlinux. The /proc/kallsyms file lack this, we only notice they are separate because there are modules after the kernel and after that more kernel functions, so we need to have a module rbtree backed by the module .ko path to get symtabs in the vmlinux case. The tool uses it to match by address to emit appropriate warning, but don't considers this fatal. The .init.text and .exit.text ines, of course, aren't in kallsyms, so I left these cases just as extra info in verbose mode. The end of the sections also aren't in kallsyms, so we the symbols layer does another pass and sets the end addresses as the next map start minus one, which sometimes pads, causing harmless mismatches. But at least the symbols match, tested it by copying /proc/kallsyms to /tmp/kallsyms and doing changes to see if they were detected. This first test also should serve as a first stab at documenting the symbol library by providing a self contained example that exercises it together with comments about what is being done. More tests to check if actions done on a monitored app, like doing mmaps, etc, makes the kernel generate the expected events should be added next.

2010-02-27perf lock: Fix and add misc documentally thingsHitoshi Mitake1-0/+1
I've forgot to add 'perf lock' line to command-list.txt, so users of perf could not find perf lock when they type 'perf'. Fixing command-list.txt requires document (tools/perf/Documentation/perf-lock.txt). But perf lock is too much "under construction" to write a stable document, so this is something like pseudo document for now. And I wrote description of perf lock at help section of CONFIG_LOCK_STAT, this will navigate users of lock trace events.

2010-01-21perf buildid-cache: Add new command to manage build-id cacheArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+1
For now it just has operations to examine a given file, find its build-id and add or remove it to/from the cache. Useful, for instance, when adding binaries sent together with a perf.data file, so that we can add them to the cache and have the tools find it when resolving symbols. It'll also manage the size of the cache like 'ccache' does.

For volatile environments, stay tuned for the next perf tool feature: a buildid cache populated by 'perf record', managed by 'perf buildid-cache' a-la ccache, and used by all the report tools.

2009-11-16perf buildid-list: New plumbing commandArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+1
With this we can list the buildids in a perf.data file so that we can pipe them to other, distro specific tools that from the buildids can figure out separate packages (foo-debuginfo) where we can find the matching symtabs so that perf report can do its job. E.g: [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf buildid-list | head -5 8e08b117e5458ad3f85da16d42d0fc5cd21c5869 520c2387a587cc5acfcf881e27dba1caaeab4b1f ec8dd400904ddfcac8b1c343263a790f977159dc 7caedbca5a6d8ab39a7fe44bd28c07d3e14a3f3f 379bb828fd08859dbea73279f04abefabc95a6a3 [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ perf buildid-list -v | head -5 8e08b117e5458ad3f85da16d42d0fc5cd21c5869 /sbin/init 520c2387a587cc5acfcf881e27dba1caaeab4b1f /lib64/ld-2.10.1.so ec8dd400904ddfcac8b1c343263a790f977159dc /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so 7caedbca5a6d8ab39a7fe44bd28c07d3e14a3f3f /sbin/udevd 379bb828fd08859dbea73279f04abefabc95a6a3 /lib64/libdl-2.10.1.so [acme@doppio linux-2.6-tip]$ Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> LKML-Reference: <1258396365-29217-5-git-send-email-acme@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2009-11-10perf bench: Modify command-list.txt for the entry of perf-benchHitoshi Mitake1-0/+1
This patch modifies command-list.txt for the entry of perf-bench. So perf will show 'bench' in command list. Example: % perf usage: perf [--version] [--help] COMMAND [ARGS] The most commonly used perf commands are: annotate Read perf.data (created by perf record) and display annotated code bench General framework for benchmark suites ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ list List all symbolic event types probe Define new dynamic tracepoints record Run a command and record its profile into perf.data report Read perf.data (created by perf record) and display the profile sched Tool to trace/measure scheduler properties (latencies) stat Run a command and gather performance counter statistics timechart Tool to visualize total system behavior during a workload top System profiling tool. trace Read perf.data (created by perf record) and display trace output See 'perf help COMMAND' for more information on a specific command.

2009-09-13perf: Add 'perf sched' toolIngo Molnar1-0/+2
This turn-key tool allows scheduler measurements to be conducted and the results be displayed numerically. First baby step towards that goal: clone the new command off of perf trace. Fix a few other details along the way: - add (minimal) perf trace documentation - reorder a few places - list perf trace in the mainporcelain list as well as it's a very useful utility.
