2014-09-25PCI/AER: Rename PCI_ERR_UNC_TRAIN to PCI_ERR_UNC_UNDChen, Gong1-1/+1
In PCIe r1.0, sec 5.10.2, bit 0 of the Uncorrectable Error Status, Mask, and Severity Registers was for "Training Error." In PCIe r1.1, sec 7.10.2, bit 0 was redefined to be "Undefined." Rename PCI_ERR_UNC_TRAIN to PCI_ERR_UNC_UND to reflect this change. No functional change.

2014-09-25trace, RAS: Add additional PCIe AER error stringsChen, Gong1-13/+22
Add all AER error bits defined in PCIe r3.0. [bhelgaas: changelog] Signed-off-by: Chen, Gong <gong.chen@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com>
2014-09-25trace, RAS: Replace bare numbers with #defines for PCIe AER error stringsChen, Gong1-16/+17
Replace bare numbers like "BIT(0)" with the existing #defines, e.g., PCI_ERR_COR_RCVR, to improve maintainability. This way grep will find more uses of the #defines. No functional change.

2014-06-25trace, RAS: Add eMCA trace event interfaceChen, Gong1-0/+64
Add trace interface to elaborate all H/W error related information. Signed-off-by: Chen, Gong <gong.chen@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
2014-06-23trace, AER: Move trace into unified interfaceChen, Gong1-0/+64
AER uses a separate trace interface by now. To make it consistent, move it into unified RAS trace interface. Signed-off-by: Chen, Gong <gong.chen@linux.intel.com> Acked-by: Borislav Petkov <bp@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Tony Luck <tony.luck@intel.com>
2013-02-21edac: add support for error type "Info"Mauro Carvalho Chehab1-3/+1
The CPER spec defines a forth type of error: informational logs. Add support for it at the edac API and at the trace event interface. Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>
2012-06-11RAS: Add a tracepoint for reporting memory controller eventsMauro Carvalho Chehab1-0/+102
Add a new tracepoint-based hardware events report method for reporting Memory Controller events. Part of the description bellow is shamelessly copied from Tony Luck's notes about the Hardware Error BoF during LPC 2010 [1]. Tony, thanks for your notes and discussions to generate the h/w error reporting requirements. [1] http://lwn.net/Articles/416669/ We have several subsystems & methods for reporting hardware errors: 1) EDAC ("Error Detection and Correction"). In its original form this consisted of a platform specific driver that read topology information and error counts from chipset registers and reported the results via a sysfs interface. 2) mcelog - x86 specific decoding of machine check bank registers reporting in binary form via /dev/mcelog. Recent additions make use of the APEI extensions that were documented in version 4.0a of the ACPI specification to acquire more information about errors without having to rely reading chipset registers directly. A user level programs decodes into somewhat human readable format. 3) drivers/edac/mce_amd.c - this driver hooks into the mcelog path and decodes errors reported via machine check bank registers in AMD processors to the console log using printk(); Each of these mechanisms has a band of followers ... and none of them appear to meet all the needs of all users. As part of a RAS subsystem, let's encapsulate the memory error hardware events into a trace facility. The tracepoint printk will be displayed like: mc_event: [quant] (Corrected|Uncorrected|Fatal) error:[error msg] on [label] ([location] [edac_mc detail] [driver_detail] Where: [quant] is the quantity of errors [error msg] is the driver-specific error message (e. g. "memory read", "bus error", ...); [location] is the location in terms of memory controller and branch/channel/slot, channel/slot or csrow/channel; [label] is the memory stick label; [edac_mc detail] describes the address location of the error and the syndrome; [driver detail] is driver-specifig error message details, when needed/provided (e. g. "area:DMA", ...) For example: mc_event: 1 Corrected error:memory read on memory stick DIMM_1A (mc:0 location:0:0:0 page:0x586b6e offset:0xa66 grain:32 syndrome:0x0 area:DMA) Of course, any userspace tools meant to handle errors should not parse the above data. They should, instead, use the binary fields provided by the tracepoint, mapping them directly into their Management Information Base. NOTE: The original patch was providing an additional mechanism for MCA-based trace events that also contained MCA error register data. However, as no agreement was reached so far for the MCA-based trace events, for now, let's add events only for memory errors. A latter patch is planned to change the tracepoint, for those types of event.
