2015-10-07perf python: Support the PERF_RECORD_SWITCH eventArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-3/+20
To test it check tools/perf/python/twatch.py, after following the instructions there to enable context_switch, output looks like: [root@zoo linux]# tools/perf/python/twatch.py cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 2, pid: 31463, tid: 31496 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31496, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 2, pid: 31463, tid: 31496 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31496, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 3, pid: 31463, tid: 31527 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31527, switch_out: 0 } cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 3, pid: 31463, tid: 31527 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31527, switch_out: 1 } cpu: 1, pid: 31463, tid: 31463 { type: context_switch, next_prev_pid: 31463, next_prev_tid: 31463, switch_out: 0 } ^CTraceback (most recent call last): File "tools/perf/python/twatch.py", line 67, in <module> main(context_switch = 1, thread = 31463) File "tools/perf/python/twatch.py", line 40, in main evlist.poll(timeout = -1) KeyboardInterrupt [root@zoo linux]# Cc: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com> Cc: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Guy Streeter <streeter@redhat.com> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Cc: Wang Nan <wangnan0@huawei.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/n/tip-1ukistmpamc5z717k80ctcp2@git.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
2015-07-29perf python: Make twatch.py use soft dummy event, freq=0Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-1/+11
To not sample, what we want are just the PERF_RECORD_ lifetime events for threads, using the default, PERF_TYPE_HARDWARE + PERF_COUNT_HW_CYCLES and freq=1 (the default), makes perf reenable irq_vectors:local_timer_entry, disabling nohz, not good for some use cases where all we want is to get notifications when threads comes and goes... Fix it by using PERF_TYPE_SOFTWARE (no counter rotation) and PERF_COUNT_SW_DUMMY (created by Adrian so that we could have access to those PERF_RECORD_ goodies).

2012-01-30perf python: Use attr.watermark in twatch.pyArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-1/+1
We want to be woken up for every PERF_RECORD_ event, attr.wakeup_events is only for PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE, so also use attr.watermark = 1 to fix that.

2011-01-31perf evlist: Store pointer to the cpu and thread mapsArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-2/+2
So that we don't have to pass it around to the several methods that needs it, simplifying usage. There is one case where we don't have the thread/cpu map in advance, which is in the parsing routines used by top, stat, record, that we have to wait till all options are parsed to know if a cpu or thread list was passed to then create those maps. For that case consolidate the cpu and thread map creation via perf_evlist__create_maps() out of the code in top and record, while also providing a perf_evlist__set_maps() for cases where multiple evlists share maps or for when maps that represent CPU sockets, for instance, get crafted out of topology information or subsets of threads in a particular application are to be monitored, providing more granularity in specifying which cpus and threads to monitor.

2011-01-30perf tools: Initial python bindingArnaldo Carvalho de Melo1-0/+41
First clarifying that this kind of binding is not a replacement or an equivalent to the 'perf script' way of using python with perf. The 'perf script' way is to process events and look at a given script for some python function that matches the events to pass each event for processing. This is a python module, i.e. everything is driven from the python script, that merely uses "import perf" or "from perf import". perf script is focused on tracepoints, this binding is focused on profiling as an initial target. More work is needed to make available tracepoint specific variables as event variables accessible via this binding. There is one example of such usage model, in tools/perf/python/twatch.py, a tool to watch "cycles" events together with task (fork, exit) and comm perf events. For now, due to me not being able to grok how python distutils cope with building C extensions outside the sources dir the install target just builds it, I'm using it as: [root@emilia linux]# export PYTHONPATH=~acme/git/build/perf/lib.linux-x86_64-2.6/ [root@emilia linux]# tools/perf/python/twatch.py cpu: 4, pid: 30126, tid: 30126 { type: mmap, pid: 30126, tid: 30126, start: 0x4, length: 0x82e9ca03, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 6, pid: 47, tid: 47 { type: mmap, pid: 47, tid: 47, start: 0x6, length: 0xbef87c36, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 1, pid: 0, tid: 0 { type: mmap, pid: 0, tid: 0, start: 0x1, length: 0x775d1904, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 7, pid: 0, tid: 0 { type: mmap, pid: 0, tid: 0, start: 0x7, length: 0xc750aeb6, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 5, pid: 2255, tid: 2255 { type: mmap, pid: 2255, tid: 2255, start: 0x5, length: 0x76669635, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 0, pid: 0, tid: 0 { type: mmap, pid: 0, tid: 0, start: 0, length: 0x6422ef6b, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 2, pid: 2255, tid: 2255 { type: mmap, pid: 2255, tid: 2255, start: 0x2, length: 0xe078757a, offset: 0, filename: } cpu: 1, pid: 5769, tid: 5769 { type: fork, pid: 30127, ppid: 5769, tid: 30127, ptid: 5769, time: 103893991270534} cpu: 6, pid: 30127, tid: 30127 { type: comm, pid: 30127, tid: 30127, comm: ls } cpu: 6, pid: 30127, tid: 30127 { type: exit, pid: 30127, ppid: 30127, tid: 30127, ptid: 30127, time: 103893993273024} The first 8 mmap events in this 8 way machine are a mistery that is still being investigated. More of the tools/perf/util/ APIs will be exposed via this python binding as the need arises. For now the focus is on creating events and processing them, symbol resolution is an obvious next step, with tracepoint variables as a close second step.
