2010-11-10perf trace: update usageTom Zanussi1-1/+5
Update usage to reflect the different perf trace variants. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net>
2010-11-10perf trace: update Documentation with new perf trace variantsTom Zanussi1-8/+49
Add documentation describing new 'perf trace' command changes e.g. <command> handling and live-mode/top variants. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net>
2010-11-10perf trace: live-mode command-line cleanupTom Zanussi1-57/+108
This patch attempts to make the perf trace command-line for live-mode commands more user-friendly and consistent with other perf commands. The main change it makes is to allow <commands> to be run as part of perf trace live-mode commands, as other perf commands do, instead of the system-wide traces they're currently hard-coded to by the shell scripts. With this patch, the following live-mode trace now works as expected: $ perf trace rw-by-pid ls -al The previous system-wide behavior for this command would still be available by explicitly specifying -a: $ perf trace rw-by-pid -a ls -al and if no <command> is specified, the output is also system-wide: $ perf trace rw-by-pid Because live-mode requires both record and report steps to be invoked, it isn't always possible to know which args to send to the report and which to send to the record steps - mainly this is the case for report scripts with optional args - in those cases it would be necessary to use separate 'perf trace record' and 'perf trace report' steps. For example: $ perf trace syscall-counts ls Here we can't decide whether ls should be passed as a param to the syscall-counts script or whether we should invoke ls as a <command>. In these cases, we just say that we'll ignore optional script params and always interpret the extra arguments as a <command>. If the user instead wants the other interpretation, that can be accomplished by using separate record and report commands explicitly: $ perf trace record syscall-counts $ perf trace report syscall-counts ls So the rules that this patch implements, which seem to make the most intuitive sense for live-mode commands: - for commands with optional args and commands with no args, no args are sent to the report script, all are sent to the record step - for 'top' commands i.e. that end with 'top', <commands> can't be used - all extra args are send to the report script as params - for commands with required args, the n required args are taken to be the first n args after the script name and sent to the report script, and the rest are sent to the record step Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net>
2010-11-10perf trace record: handle commands correctlyTom Zanussi1-4/+28
Because the perf-trace shell scripts hard-coded the use of the perf-record system-wide param, a perf trace record session was always system wide, even if it was given a command. If given a command, perf trace record now only records the events for the command, as users expect. If no command is given, or if the '-a' option is used, the recorded events are system-wide, as before. root@tropicana:~# perf trace record syscall-counts ls -al root@tropicana:~# perf trace ls-23152 [000] 39984.890387: sys_enter: NR 12 (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) ls-23152 [000] 39984.890404: sys_enter: NR 9 (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) root@tropicana:~# perf trace record syscall-counts -a ls -al root@tropicana:~# perf trace npviewer.bin-22297 [000] 39831.102709: sys_enter: NR 168 (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) ls-23111 [000] 39831.107679: sys_enter: NR 59 (0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0) Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net>
2010-11-10perf record: make the record options available outside perf recordTom Zanussi1-5/+5
Other perf commands that invoke perf record, such as perf trace, may want to reuse the options used by perf record. This makes them non-static and renames them to avoid clashes with other 'options' variables.

2010-11-10perf: Fix usages of profile_cpu in builtin-top.c to use cpu_listCorey Ashford1-7/+5
profile_cpu was left over from an earlier implementation that supported running perf top on a single CPU. profile_cpu was no longer set by any switch and usages of it resulted in dead code. Instead, convert the code to use cpu_list, which is set by the -C <cpu_list> option. Also improved the printing of nr_cpus and cpu_list by correcting the plurals.

2010-10-04perf trace scripting: Fix extern struct definitionsStephane Eranian1-2/+2
Both python_scripting_ops and perl_scripting_ops have two global definitions. One in trace-event-scripting.c and one in their respective scripting-engine modules. The issue is that depending on the linker order one definition or the other is chosen. One is uninitialized (bss), while the other is initialized. If the uninitialized version is chosen, then perf does not function properly. This patch fixes this by adding the extern prefix to the definitions in trace-event-scripting.c. Cc: David S.

2010-09-07perf: Add a script to show packets processingKoki Sanagi3-0/+477
Add a perf script which shows packets processing and processed time. It helps us to investigate networking or network devices. If you want to use it, install perf and record perf.data like following. If you set script, perf gathers records until it ends. If not, you must Ctrl-C to stop recording. And if you want a report from record, If you use some options, you can limit the output. Option is below. tx: show only tx packets processing rx: show only rx packets processing dev=: show processing on this device debug: work with debug mode. It shows buffer status. For example, if you want to show received packets processing associated with eth4, 106133.171439sec cpu=0 irq_entry(+0.000msec irq=24:eth4) | softirq_entry(+0.006msec) | |---netif_receive_skb(+0.010msec skb=f2d15900 len=100) | | | skb_copy_datagram_iovec(+0.039msec 10291::10291) | napi_poll_exit(+0.022msec eth4) This perf script helps us to analyze the processing time of a transmit/receive sequence.

2010-08-27perf: Initialize callchains roots's childen hitsFrederic Weisbecker1-0/+1
Each histogram entry has a callchain root that stores the callchain samples. However we forgot to initialize the tracking of children hits of these roots, which then got random values on their creation. The root children hits is multiplied by the minimum percentage of hits provided by the user, and the result becomes the minimum hits expected from children branches. If the random value due to the uninitialization is big enough, then this minimum number of hits can be huge and eventually filter every children branches. The end result was invisible callchains. All we need to fix this is to initialize the children hits of the root.
