perf: Add cgroup support
This kernel patch adds the ability to filter monitoring based on container groups (cgroups). This is for use in per-cpu mode only. The cgroup to monitor is passed as a file descriptor in the pid argument to the syscall. The file descriptor must be opened to the cgroup name in the cgroup filesystem. For instance, if the cgroup name is foo and cgroupfs is mounted in /cgroup, then the file descriptor is opened to /cgroup/foo. Cgroup mode is activated by passing PERF_FLAG_PID_CGROUP in the flags argument to the syscall. For instance to measure in cgroup foo on CPU1 assuming cgroupfs is mounted under /cgroup: struct perf_event_attr attr; int cgroup_fd, fd; cgroup_fd = open("/cgroup/foo", O_RDONLY); fd = perf_event_open(&attr, cgroup_fd, 1, -1, PERF_FLAG_PID_CGROUP); close(cgroup_fd); Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> [ added perf_cgroup_{exit,attach} ] Signed-off-by: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> LKML-Reference: <4d590250.114ddf0a.689e.4482@mx.google.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
