2009-11-08perf tools: Fix permission checksPekka Enberg2-2/+2
The perf_event_open() system call returns EACCES if the user is not root which results in a very confusing error message: $ perf record -A -a -f Error: perfcounter syscall returned with -1 (Permission denied) Fatal: No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured? It turns out that's because perf tools are checking only for EPERM. Fix that up to get a much better error message: $ perf record -A -a -f Fatal: Permission error - are you root?

The present use of -Wcast-align causes the build to blow up on SH due to generating a "cast increases required alignment of target type" error on each invocation of list_for_each_entry(). It seems that this was previously reported and killed off in the ia64 support patch, but nothing seems to have happened with that. Presumably the same problem still remains there, too.

2009-10-01perf timechart: Add a power-only modeArjan van de Ven3-4/+23
For doing work on the Linux power management components, I need to make long (30+ seconds) traces. Currently, this then results in a HUGE svg file, with mostly process data that isn't interesting. This patch adds a --power-only mode to perf timechart that only outputs the CPU power section of the SVG; this significantly reduces the size of the SVG file, making even 30+ second traces viewable with inkscape. As a minor tweak for the same effect, the minimum text size is decreased; current inkscape cannot zoom in deep enough to show text this small, but it reduces inkscape compute time.

Avi Kivity reported 'perf annotate' failures with modules, the requested function was not annotated. If there are no modules currently loaded, or the last module scanned is not loaded, dso__load_modules() steps on the value from dso__load_vmlinux(), so we happily load the kallsyms symbols on top of what we've already loaded. Fix that such that the total count of symbols loaded is returned. Should module symbol load fail after parsing of vmlinux, is's a hard failure, so do not silently fall-back to kallsyms.

2009-09-21perf: Do the big rename: Performance Counters -> Performance EventsIngo Molnar18-155/+155
Bye-bye Performance Counters, welcome Performance Events! In the past few months the perfcounters subsystem has grown out its initial role of counting hardware events, and has become (and is becoming) a much broader generic event enumeration, reporting, logging, monitoring, analysis facility. Naming its core object 'perf_counter' and naming the subsystem 'perfcounters' has become more and more of a misnomer. With pending code like hw-breakpoints support the 'counter' name is less and less appropriate. All in one, we've decided to rename the subsystem to 'performance events' and to propagate this rename through all fields, variables and API names. (in an ABI compatible fashion) The word 'event' is also a bit shorter than 'counter' - which makes it slightly more convenient to write/handle as well. Thanks goes to Stephane Eranian who first observed this misnomer and suggested a rename. User-space tooling and ABI compatibility is not affected - this patch should be function-invariant. (Also, defconfigs were not touched to keep the size down.) This patch has been generated via the following script: FILES=$(find * -type f | grep -vE 'oprofile|[^K]config') sed -i \ -e 's/PERF_EVENT_/PERF_RECORD_/g' \ -e 's/PERF_COUNTER/PERF_EVENT/g' \ -e 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g' \ -e 's/nb_counters/nb_events/g' \ -e 's/swcounter/swevent/g' \ -e 's/tpcounter_event/tp_event/g' \ $FILES for N in $(find . -name perf_counter.[ch]); do M=$(echo $N | sed 's/perf_counter/perf_event/g') mv $N $M done FILES=$(find . -name perf_event.*) sed -i \ -e 's/COUNTER_MASK/REG_MASK/g' \ -e 's/COUNTER/EVENT/g' \ -e 's/\<event\>/event_id/g' \ -e 's/counter/event/g' \ -e 's/Counter/Event/g' \ $FILES ... to keep it as correct as possible. This script can also be used by anyone who has pending perfcounters patches - it converts a Linux kernel tree over to the new naming. We tried to time this change to the point in time where the amount of pending patches is the smallest: the end of the merge window. Namespace clashes were fixed up in a preparatory patch - and some stylistic fallout will be fixed up in a subsequent patch. ( NOTE: 'counters' are still the proper terminology when we deal with hardware registers - and these sed scripts are a bit over-eager in renaming them. I've undone some of that, but in case there's something left where 'counter' would be better than 'event' we can undo that on an individual basis instead of touching an otherwise nicely automated patch. ) Suggested-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Acked-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Reviewed-by: Arjan van de Ven <arjan@linux.intel.com> Cc: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Cc: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Cc: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Cc: Kyle McMartin <kyle@mcmartin.ca> Cc: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com> Cc: "David S.

2009-09-19perf: Add the timechart toolArjan van de Ven4-0/+1129
timechart is a tool to visualize what is going on in the system. The user makes a trace of what is going on with > perf record --timechart /usr/bin/some_command and then can turn the output of this into an svg file > perf timechart which then can be viewed with any SVG view; inkscape works well enough for me. The idea behind timechart is to create a "infinitely zoomable" picture; something that has high level information on a 1:1 zoom level, but which exposes more details every time you zoom into a specific area.

2009-09-19perf: Add a SVG helper library fileArjan van de Ven3-0/+408
The timechart tool writes out SVG format output; this patch adds a set of helper functions to abstract dealing with SVG from the core timechart code.

2009-09-19perf: Allow perf utilities to have "callback" options without argumentsArjan van de Ven1-0/+2
timechart needs to add a "callback" type command line argument that does not take arguments. This patch adds the parse-options.h infrastructure to make this possible.

2009-09-19perf: Store trace event name/id pairs in perf.dataArjan van de Ven3-0/+90
The trace event name<->id mapping is dynamic for each kernel compile. In order for perf.data to be useable outside the actual system, we thus need to store a table of this mapping for later use. This patch adds this table to perf.data, and provides helper functions for lookup up fields from this table. To avoid mistakes, lookup-from-table is kept completely seprate from lookup-from-local-debugfs.

2009-09-19perf: Add a timestamp to fork eventsArjan van de Ven1-0/+1
perf timechart needs to know when a process forked, in order to be able to visualize properly when tasks start. This patch adds a time field to the event structure, and fills it in appropriately.

2009-09-18perf sched: Add --input=file option to builtin-sched.cMike Galbraith1-1/+3
perf sched record passes unparsed args on to perf record, so specifying an output file via perf sched record -o FILE (cmd) just works. Ergo, provide an option to specify input file as well. Also add the missing 'map' command to help.

2009-09-17perf record: Disable profiling before draining the bufferPeter Zijlstra1-1/+12
