* perf report: Report number of events, not samplesArnaldo Carvalho de Melo2010-05-141-3/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Number of samples is meaningless after we switched to auto-freq, so report the number of events, i.e. not the sum of the different periods, but the number PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE emitted by the kernel. While doing this I noticed that naming "count" to the sum of all the event periods can be confusing, so rename it to .period, just like in struct sample.data, so that we become more consistent. This helps with the next step, that was to record in struct hist_entry the number of sample events for each instance, we need that because we use it to generate the number of events when applying filters to the tree of hist entries like it is being done in the TUI report browser.

* perf hist: Clarify events_stats fields usageArnaldo Carvalho de Melo2010-05-141-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The events_stats.total field is too generic, rename it to .total_period, and also add a comment explaining that it is the sum of all the .period fields in samples, that is needed because we use auto-freq to avoid sampling artifacts. Ditto for events_stats.lost, that is the sum of all lost_event.lost fields, i.e. the number of events the kernel dropped. Looking at the users, builtin-sched.c can make use of these fields and stop doing it again.

* perf hist: Introduce hists class and move lots of methods to itArnaldo Carvalho de Melo2010-05-101-27/+23
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | In cbbc79a we introduced support for multiple events by introducing a new "event_stat_id" struct and then made several perf_session methods receive a point to it instead of a pointer to perf_session, and kept the event_stats and hists rb_tree in perf_session. While working on the new newt based browser, I realised that it would be better to introduce a new class, "hists" (short for "histograms"), renaming the "event_stat_id" struct and the perf_session methods that were really "hists" methods, as they manipulate only struct hists members, not touching anything in the other perf_session members. Other optimizations, such as calculating the maximum lenght of a symbol name present in an hists instance will be possible as we add them, avoiding a re-traversal just for finding that information. The rationale for the name "hists" to replace "event_stat_id" is that we may have multiple sets of hists for the same event_stat id, as, for instance, the 'perf diff' tool has, so event stat id is not what characterizes what this struct and the functions that manipulate it do.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | And with that fix at least one bug: The first hit for an entry, the one that calls malloc to create a new instance in __perf_session__add_hist_entry, wasn't adding the count to the per cpumode (PERF_RECORD_MISC_USER, etc) total variable.

* perf: add perf-inject builtinTom Zanussi2010-05-021-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Currently, perf 'live mode' writes build-ids at the end of the session, which isn't actually useful for processing live mode events. What would be better would be to have the build-ids sent before any of the samples that reference them, which can be done by processing the event stream and retrieving the build-ids on the first hit. Doing that in perf-record itself, however, is off-limits. This patch introduces perf-inject, which does the same job while leaving perf-record untouched. Normal mode perf still records the build-ids at the end of the session as it should, but for live mode, perf-inject can be injected in between the record and report steps e.g.: perf record -o - ./hackbench 10 | perf inject -v -b | perf report -v -i - perf-inject reads a perf-record event stream and repipes it to stdout. At any point the processing code can inject other events into the event stream - in this case build-ids (-b option) are read and injected as needed into the event stream. Build-ids are just the first user of perf-inject - potentially anything that needs userspace processing to augment the trace stream with additional information could make use of this facility.

* perf: Fix endianness argument compatibility with OPT_BOOLEAN() and introduce ↵Ian Munsie2010-04-141-2/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | OPT_INCR() Parsing an option from the command line with OPT_BOOLEAN on a bool data type would not work on a big-endian machine due to the manner in which the boolean was being cast into an int and incremented. For example, running 'perf probe --list' on a PowerPC machine would fail to properly set the list_events bool and would therefore print out the usage information and terminate. This patch makes OPT_BOOLEAN work as expected with a bool datatype. For cases where the original OPT_BOOLEAN was intentionally being used to increment an int each time it was passed in on the command line, this patch introduces OPT_INCR with the old behaviour of OPT_BOOLEAN (the verbose variable is currently the only such example of this). I have reviewed every use of OPT_BOOLEAN to verify that a true C99 bool was passed. Where integers were used, I verified that they were only being used for boolean logic and changed them to bools to ensure that they would not be mistakenly used as ints. The major exception was the verbose variable which now uses OPT_INCR instead of OPT_BOOLEAN. Signed-off-by: Ian Munsie <imunsie@au.ibm.com> Acked-by: David S.

* perf diff: Fix support for all --sort combinationsArnaldo Carvalho de Melo2009-12-301-31/+21
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | When we finish creating the hist_entries we _already_ have them sorted "by name", in fact by what is in --sort, that is exactly how we can find the pairs in perf_session__match_hists as 'comm', 'dso' & 'symbol' all are strings we need to find the matches in the baseline session. So only do the sort by hits followed by a resort by --sort if we need to find the position for shwowing the --displacement of hist entries. Now all these modes work correctly: Example is a simple 'perf record -f find / > /dev/null' ran twice then followed by the following commands: $ perf diff -f --sort comm # Baseline Delta Command # ........ .......... ....... # 0.00% +100.00% find $ perf diff -f --sort dso # Baseline Delta Shared Object # ........ .......... .................. # 59.97% -0.44% [kernel] 21.17% +0.28% libc-2.5.so 18.49% +0.16% [ext3] 0.37% find $ perf diff -f --sort symbol | head -8 # Baseline Delta Symbol # ........ .......... ...... # 6.21% +0.36% [k] ext3fs_dirhash 3.43% +0.41% [.] __GI_strlen 3.53% +0.16% [k] __kmalloc 3.17% +0.49% [k] system_call 3.06% +0.37% [k] ext3_htree_store_dirent $ perf diff -f --sort dso,symbol | head -8 # Baseline Delta Shared Object Symbol # ........ .......... .................. ...... # 6.21% +0.36% [ext3] [k] ext3fs_dirhash 3.43% +0.41% libc-2.5.so [.] __GI_strlen 3.53% +0.16% [kernel] [k] __kmalloc 3.17% +0.49% [kernel] [k] system_call 3.06% +0.37% [ext3] [k] ext3_htree_store_dirent $ And we don't have to do two expensive resorts in the common, non --displacement case.

I guess it is enough to show some examples: [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# rm -f perf.data* [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# ls -la perf.data* ls: cannot access perf.data*: No such file or directory [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf record -f find / > /dev/null [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.062 MB perf.data (~2699 samples) ] [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# ls -la perf.data* -rw------- 1 root root 74440 2009-12-14 20:03 perf.data [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf record -f find / > /dev/null [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ] [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.062 MB perf.data (~2692 samples) ] [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# ls -la perf.data* -rw------- 1 root root 74280 2009-12-14 20:03 perf.data -rw------- 1 root root 74440 2009-12-14 20:03 perf.data.old [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf diff | head -5 1 -34994580 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _IO_vfprintf_internal 2 -15307806 [kernel.kallsyms] __kmalloc 3 +1 +3665941 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so __GI_memmove 4 +4 +23508995 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _int_malloc 5 +7 +38538813 [kernel.kallsyms] __d_lookup [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf diff -p | head -5 1 +1.00% /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _IO_vfprintf_internal 2 [kernel.kallsyms] __kmalloc 3 +1 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so __GI_memmove 4 +4 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _int_malloc 5 +7 -1.00% [kernel.kallsyms] __d_lookup [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf diff -v | head -5 1 361449551 326454971 -34994580 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _IO_vfprintf_internal 2 151009241 135701435 -15307806 [kernel.kallsyms] __kmalloc 3 +1 101805328 105471269 +3665941 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so __GI_memmove 4 +4 78041440 101550435 +23508995 /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _int_malloc 5 +7 59536172 98074985 +38538813 [kernel.kallsyms] __d_lookup [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# perf diff -vp | head -5 1 9.00% 8.00% +1.00% /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _IO_vfprintf_internal 2 3.00% 3.00% [kernel.kallsyms] __kmalloc 3 +1 2.00% 2.00% /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so __GI_memmove 4 +4 2.00% 2.00% /lib64/libc-2.10.1.so _int_malloc 5 +7 1.00% 2.00% -1.00% [kernel.kallsyms] __d_lookup [root@doppio linux-2.6-tip]# This should be enough for diffs where the system is non volatile, i.e. when one doesn't updates binaries. 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.
