perf tools: Cache dso data file descriptor
Caching dso data file descriptors to avoid expensive re-opens especially during DWARF unwind. We keep dsos data file descriptors open until their count reaches the half of the current fd open limit (RLIMIT_NOFILE). In this case we close file descriptor of the first opened dso object. We've got overall speedup (~27% for my workload) of report: 'perf report --stdio -i perf-test.data' (3 runs) (perf-test.data size was around 12GB) current code: 545,640,944,228 cycles ( +- 0.53% ) 785,255,798,320 instructions ( +- 0.03% ) 366.340910010 seconds time elapsed ( +- 3.65% ) after change: 435,895,036,114 cycles ( +- 0.26% ) 636,790,271,176 instructions ( +- 0.04% ) 266.481463387 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.13% ) Acked-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@kernel.org> Cc: Corey Ashford <cjashfor@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: David Ahern <dsahern@gmail.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org> Cc: Jean Pihet <jean.pihet@linaro.org> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1401892622-30848-7-git-send-email-jolsa@kernel.org Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org>
