7 years agoperf report: Use ui__warning in some more places

perf report: Use ui__warning in some more places

So that we get a proper warning in the TUI in cases like:

 $ perf report --stdio -g fractal,0.5,caller --sort pid
 Selected -g but no callchain data. Did you call 'perf record' without -g?
 $

The --stdio case is ok because it uses fprintf, ui__warning is needed to
figure out if --stdio or --tui is being used.

perf tools: Add missing 'node' alias to the hw_cache[] array

Add "node" as a simple alias for NODE cache events.

The addition of NODE cache events broke the parse_alias
function, so any mismatched event caused the segfault, like:

  # ./perf stat -e krava ls

The hw_cache/hw_cache_op/hw_cache_result arrays needs to follow
PERF_COUNT_HW_CACHE_*MAX enums. Adding those MAXs to be size
of those arrays, so possible ommision in future wil not lead to
segfault.

Support adding probes on offline kernel modules. This enables
perf-probe to trace kernel-module init functions via perf-probe.
If user gives the path of module with -m option, perf-probe
expects the module is offline.
This feature works with --add, --funcs, and --vars.

E.g)
 # perf probe -m /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/fs/btrfs/btrfs.ko \
   -a "extent_io_init:5 extent_state_cache"
 Add new events:
   probe:extent_io_init (on extent_io_init:5 with extent_state_cache)
   probe:extent_io_init_1 (on extent_io_init:5 with extent_state_cache)

 You can now use it on all perf tools, such as:

         perf record -e probe:extent_io_init_1 -aR sleep 1

7 years agoftrace: Fix regression where ftrace breaks when modules are loaded
Steven Rostedt [Fri, 15 Jul 2011 03:02:27 +0000]
ftrace: Fix regression where ftrace breaks when modules are loaded

Enabling function tracer to trace all functions, then load a module and
then disable function tracing will cause ftrace to fail.

This can also happen by enabling function tracing on the command line:

  ftrace=function

and during boot up, modules are loaded, then you disable function tracing
with 'echo nop > current_tracer' you will trigger a bug in ftrace that
will shut itself down.

The reason is, the new ftrace code keeps ref counts of all ftrace_ops that
are registered for tracing. When one or more ftrace_ops are registered,
all the records that represent the functions that the ftrace_ops will
trace have a ref count incremented. If this ref count is not zero,
when the code modification runs, that function will be enabled for tracing.
If the ref count is zero, that function will be disabled from tracing.

To make sure the accounting was working, FTRACE_WARN_ON()s were added
to updating of the ref counts.

If the ref count hits its max (> 2^30 ftrace_ops added), or if
the ref count goes below zero, a FTRACE_WARN_ON() is triggered which
disables all modification of code.

Since it is common for ftrace_ops to trace all functions in the kernel,
instead of creating > 20,000 hash items for the ftrace_ops, the hash
count is just set to zero, and it represents that the ftrace_ops is
to trace all functions. This is where the issues arrise.

If you enable function tracing to trace all functions, and then add
a module, the modules function records do not get the ref count updated.
When the function tracer is disabled, all function records ref counts
are subtracted. Since the modules never had their ref counts incremented,
they go below zero and the FTRACE_WARN_ON() is triggered.

The solution to this is rather simple. When modules are loaded, and
their functions are added to the the ftrace pool, look to see if any
ftrace_ops are registered that trace all functions. And for those,
update the ref count for the module function records.

perf, x86: P4 PMU - Introduce event alias feature

Instead of hw_nmi_watchdog_set_attr() weak function

we introduce even alias mechanism which allow us
to drop this routines completely and isolate quirks
of Netburst architecture inside P4 PMU code only.

The main idea remains the same though -- to allow
nmi-watchdog and perf top run simultaneously.

Note the aliasing mechanism applies to generic
PERF_COUNT_HW_CPU_CYCLES event only because arbitrary
event (say passed as RAW initially) might have some
additional bits set inside ESCR register changing
the behaviour of event and we can't guarantee anymore
that alias event will give the same result.

P.S. Thanks a huge to Don and Steven for for testing
     and early review.

7 years agotracing: Have dynamic size event stack traces

tracing: Have dynamic size event stack traces

Currently the stack trace per event in ftace is only 8 frames.
This can be quite limiting and sometimes useless. Especially when
the "ignore frames" is wrong and we also use up stack frames for
the event processing itself.

Change this to be dynamic by adding a percpu buffer that we can
write a large stack frame into and then copy into the ring buffer.

For interrupts and NMIs that come in while another event is being
process, will only get to use the 8 frame stack. That should be enough
as the task that it interrupted will have the full stack frame anyway.

7 years agoftrace: Fix dynamic selftest failure on some archs
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 13 Jul 2011 19:11:02 +0000]
ftrace: Fix dynamic selftest failure on some archs

Archs that do not implement CONFIG_HAVE_FUNCTION_TRACE_MCOUNT_TEST, will
fail the dynamic ftrace selftest.

The function tracer has a quick 'off' variable that will prevent
the call back functions from being called. This variable is called
function_trace_stop. In x86, this is implemented directly in the mcount
assembly, but for other archs, an intermediate function is used called
ftrace_test_stop_func().

In dynamic ftrace, the function pointer variable ftrace_trace_function is
used to update the caller code in the mcount caller. But for archs that
do not have CONFIG_HAVE_FUNCTION_TRACE_MCOUNT_TEST set, it only calls
ftrace_test_stop_func() instead, which in turn calls __ftrace_trace_function.

When more than one ftrace_ops is registered, the function it calls is
ftrace_ops_list_func(), which will iterate over all registered ftrace_ops
and call the callbacks that have their hash matching.

The issue happens when two ftrace_ops are registered for different functions
and one is then unregistered. The __ftrace_trace_function is then pointed
to the remaining ftrace_ops callback function directly. This mean it will
be called for all functions that were registered to trace by both ftrace_ops
that were registered.

This is not an issue for archs with CONFIG_HAVE_FUNCTION_TRACE_MCOUNT_TEST,
because the update of ftrace_trace_function doesn't happen until after all
functions have been updated, and then the mcount caller is updated. But
for those archs that do use the ftrace_test_stop_func(), the update is
immediate.

The dynamic selftest fails because it hits this situation, and the
ftrace_ops that it registers fails to only trace what it was suppose to
and instead traces all other functions.

The solution is to delay the setting of __ftrace_trace_function until
after all the functions have been updated according to the registered
ftrace_ops. Also, function_trace_stop is set during the update to prevent
function tracing from calling code that is caused by the function tracer
itself.

7 years agoftrace: Balance records when updating the hash
Steven Rostedt [Wed, 13 Jul 2011 19:03:44 +0000]
ftrace: Balance records when updating the hash

Whenever the hash of the ftrace_ops is updated, the record counts
must be balance. This requires disabling the records that are set
in the original hash, and then enabling the records that are set
in the updated hash.

Moving the update into ftrace_hash_move() removes the bug where the
hash was updated but the records were not, which results in ftrace
triggering a warning and disabling itself because the ftrace_ops filter
is updated while the ftrace_ops was registered, and then the failure
happens when the ftrace_ops is unregistered.

The current code will not trigger this bug, but new code will.

ftrace: Do not disable interrupts for modules in mcount update

When I mounted an NFS directory, it caused several modules to be loaded. At the

Looking at the cause (being the ftrace author helped), I found that the
interrupts are disabled before the code modification of mcounts into nops. The
interrupts only need to be disabled on start up around this code, not when

7 years agotracing: Still trace filtered irq functions when irq trace is disabled

tracing: Still trace filtered irq functions when irq trace is disabled

If a function is set to be traced by the set_graph_function, but the
option funcgraph-irqs is zero, and the traced function happens to be
called from a interrupt, it will not be traced.

The point of funcgraph-irqs is to not trace interrupts when we are
preempted by an irq, not to not trace functions we want to trace that
happen to be *in* a irq.

Luckily the current->trace_recursion element is perfect to add a flag
to help us be able to trace functions within an interrupt even when
we are not tracing interrupts that preempt the trace.

7 years agotracing, x86/irq: Do not trace arch_local_{*,irq_*}() functions
Steven Rostedt [Sat, 2 Jul 2011 03:04:36 +0000]
tracing, x86/irq: Do not trace arch_local_{*,irq_*}() functions

I triggered a triple fault with gcc 4.5.1 because it did not
honor the inline annotation to arch_local_save_flags() function
and that function was added to the pool of functions traced by
the function tracer.

When preempt_schedule() called arch_local_save_flags() (called
by irqs_disabled()), it was traced, but the first thing the
function tracer does is disable preemption. When it enables
preemption, the NEED_RESCHED flag will not have been cleared and
the preemption check will trigger the call to preempt_schedule()
again.

Although the dynamic function tracer crashed immediately, the
static version of the function tracer (CONFIG_DYNAMIC_FTRACE is
not set) actually was able to show where the problem was.

 swapper-1       3.N.. 103885us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103886us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103886us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103887us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103887us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103888us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule
 swapper-1       3.N.. 103888us : arch_local_save_flags <-preempt_schedule

It went on for a while before it triple faulted with a corrupted
stack.

The arch_local_save_flags and arch_local_irq_* functions should
not be traced. Even though they are marked as inline, gcc may
still make them a function and enable tracing of them.

The simple solution is to just mark them as notrace. I had to
add the <linux/types.h> for this file to include the notrace
tag.

7 years agotracing: Have "enable" file use refcounts like the "filter" file
Steven Rostedt [Tue, 5 Jul 2011 18:32:51 +0000]
tracing: Have "enable" file use refcounts like the "filter" file

The "enable" file for the event system can be removed when a module
is unloaded and the event system only has events from that module.
As the event system nr_events count goes to zero, it may be freed
if its ref_count is also set to zero.

Like the "filter" file, the "enable" file may be opened by a task and
referenced later, after a module has been unloaded and the events for
that event system have been removed.

Although the "filter" file referenced the event system structure,
the "enable" file only references a pointer to the event system
name. Since the name is freed when the event system is removed,
it is possible that an access to the "enable" file may reference
a freed pointer.

Update the "enable" file to use the subsystem_open() routine that
the "filter" file uses, to keep a reference to the event system
structure while the "enable" file is opened.

7 years agotracing: Fix bug when reading system filters on module removal
Steven Rostedt [Tue, 5 Jul 2011 15:36:06 +0000]
tracing: Fix bug when reading system filters on module removal

The event system is freed when its nr_events is set to zero. This happens
when a module created an event system and then later the module is
removed. Modules may share systems, so the system is allocated when
it is created and freed when the modules are unloaded and all the
events under the system are removed (nr_events set to zero).

The problem arises when a task opened the "filter" file for the
system. If the module is unloaded and it removed the last event for
that system, the system structure is freed. If the task that opened
the filter file accesses the "filter" file after the system has
been freed, the system will access an invalid pointer.

By adding a ref_count, and using it to keep track of what
is using the event system, we can free it after all users
are finished with the event system.

perf report/annotate/script: Add option to specify a CPU range

Add an option to perf report/annotate/script to specify which
CPUs to operate on. This enables us to take a single system wide
profile and analyse each CPU (or group of CPUs) in isolation.

This was useful when profiling a multiprocess workload where the
bottleneck was on one CPU but this was hidden in the overall
profile. Per process and per thread breakdowns didn't help
because multiple processes were running on each CPU and no
single process consumed an entire CPU.

The patch converts the list of CPUs returned by cpu_map__new
into a bitmap for fast lookup. I wanted to use -C to be
consistent with perf top/record/stat, but unfortunately perf
report already uses -C <comms>.

 v2: Incorporate suggestions from David Ahern:
- Added -c to perf script
- Check that SAMPLE_CPU is set when -c is used
- Update documentation

 v3: Create perf_session__cpu_bitmap()

7 years agox86: Don't use frame pointer to save old stack on irq entry
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 2 Jul 2011 14:52:45 +0000]
x86: Don't use frame pointer to save old stack on irq entry

rbp is used in SAVE_ARGS_IRQ to save the old stack pointer
in order to restore it later in ret_from_intr.

It is convenient because we save its value in the irq regs
and it's easily restored using the leave instruction.

However this is a kind of abuse of the frame pointer which
role is to help unwinding the kernel by chaining frames
together, each node following the return address to the
previous frame.

But although we are breaking the frame by changing the stack
pointer, there is no preceding return address before the new
frame. Hence using the frame pointer to link the two stacks
breaks the stack unwinders that find a random value instead of
a return address here.

There is no workaround that can work in every case. We are using
the fixup_bp_irq_link() function to dereference that abused frame
pointer in the case of non nesting interrupt (which means stack
changed).
But that doesn't fix the case of interrupts that don't change the
stack (but we still have the unconditional frame link), which is
the case of hardirq interrupting softirq. We have no way to detect
this transition so the frame irq link is considered as a real frame
pointer and the return address is dereferenced but it is still a
spurious one.

There are two possible results of this: either the spurious return
address, a random stack value, luckily belongs to the kernel text
and then the unwinding can continue and we just have a weird entry
in the stack trace. Or it doesn't belong to the kernel text and
unwinding stops there.

This is the reason why stacktraces (including perf callchains) on
irqs that interrupted softirqs don't work very well.

To solve this, we don't save the old stack pointer on rbp anymore
but we save it to a scratch register that we push on the new
stack and that we pop back later on irq return.

This preserves the whole frame chain without spurious return addresses
in the middle and drops the need for the horrid fixup_bp_irq_link()
workaround.

And finally irqs that interrupt softirq are sanely unwinded.

x86,64: Simplify save_regs()

The save_regs function that saves the regs on low level
irq entry is complicated because of the fact it changes
its stack in the middle and also because it manipulates
data allocated in the caller frame and accesses there
are directly calculated from callee rsp value with the
return address in the middle of the way.

This complicates the static stack offsets calculation and
require more dynamic ones. It also needs a save/restore
of the function's return address.

To simplify and optimize this, turn save_regs() into a
macro.

7 years agox86: Fetch stack from regs when possible in dump_trace()
Frederic Weisbecker [Thu, 30 Jun 2011 17:04:56 +0000]
x86: Fetch stack from regs when possible in dump_trace()

When regs are passed to dump_stack(), we fetch the frame
pointer from the regs but the stack pointer is taken from
the current frame.

Thus the frame and stack pointers may not come from the same
context. For example this can result in the unwinder to
think the context is in irq, due to the current value of
the stack, but the frame pointer coming from the regs points
to a frame from another place. It then tries to fix up
the irq link but ends up dereferencing a random frame
pointer that doesn't belong to the irq stack:

For example right now we output this --repeat information:

 1.164789,task-clock
 8,context-switches
 0,CPU-migrations

With this patch, the output will be appended with an additional
entry for the noise value:

 ./perf stat -r3 -x, sleep 1
 1.164789,task-clock,3.75%
 8,context-switches,75.00%
 0,CPU-migrations,100.00%
 219,page-faults,0.00%

perf: Add context field to perf_event

The perf_event overflow handler does not receive any caller-derived
argument, so many callers need to resort to looking up the perf_event
in their local data structure.  This is ugly and doesn't scale if a
single callback services many perf_events.

Fix by adding a context parameter to perf_event_create_kernel_counter()
(and derived hardware breakpoints APIs) and storing it in the perf_event.
The field can be accessed from the callback as event->overflow_handler_context.
All callers are updated.

perf, arch: Add generic NODE cache events

Add a NODE level to the generic cache events which is used to measure
local vs remote memory accesses. Like all other cache events, an
ACCESS is HIT+MISS, if there is no way to distinguish between reads
and writes do reads only etc..

The below needs filling out for !x86 (which I filled out with
unsupported events).

I'm fairly sure ARM can leave it like that since it doesn't strike me as
an architecture that even has NUMA support. SH might have something since
it does appear to have some NUMA bits.

Sparc64, PowerPC and MIPS certainly want a good look there since they
clearly are NUMA capable.

perf_events: Add Intel Sandy Bridge offcore_response low-level support

This patch adds Intel Sandy Bridge offcore_response support by
providing the low-level constraint table for those events.

On Sandy Bridge, there are two offcore_response events. Each uses
its own dedictated extra register. But those registers are NOT shared
between sibling CPUs when HT is on unlike Nehalem/Westmere. They are
always private to each CPU. But they still need to be controlled within
an event group. All events within an event group must use the same
value for the extra MSR. That's not controlled by the second patch in
this series.

Furthermore on Sandy Bridge, the offcore_response events have NO
counter constraints contrary to what the official documentation
indicates, so drop the events from the contraint table.

Stephane Eranian [Mon, 6 Jun 2011 14:57:08 +0000]
perf_events: Fix validation of events using an extra reg

The validate_group() function needs to validate events with
extra shared regs. Within an event group, only events with
the same value for the extra reg can co-exist. This was not
checked by validate_group() because it was missing the
shared_regs logic.

This patch changes the allocation of the fake cpuc used for
validation to also point to a fake shared_regs structure such
that group events be properly testing.

It modifies __intel_shared_reg_get_constraints() to use
spin_lock_irqsave() to avoid lockdep issues.

This patch improves the code managing the extra shared registers
used for offcore_response events on Intel Nehalem/Westmere. The
idea is to use static allocation instead of dynamic allocation.
This simplifies greatly the get and put constraint routines for
those events.

The patch also renames per_core to shared_regs because the same
data structure gets used whether or not HT is on. When HT is
off, those events still need to coordination because they use
a extra MSR that has to be shared within an event group.

Peter Zijlstra [Mon, 27 Jun 2011 12:41:57 +0000]
perf: Remove the nmi parameter from the swevent and overflow interface

The nmi parameter indicated if we could do wakeups from the current
context, if not, we would set some state and self-IPI and let the
resulting interrupt do the wakeup.

For the various event classes:

  - hardware: nmi=0; PMI is in fact an NMI or we run irq_work_run from
    the PMI-tail (ARM etc.)
  - tracepoint: nmi=0; since tracepoint could be from NMI context.
  - software: nmi=[0,1]; some, like the schedule thing cannot
    perform wakeups, and hence need 0.

As one can see, there is very little nmi=1 usage, and the down-side of
not using it is that on some platforms some software events can have a
jiffy delay in wakeup (when arch_irq_work_raise isn't implemented).

The up-side however is that we can remove the nmi parameter and save a
bunch of conditionals in fast paths.

7 years agoperf, x86: Add hw_watchdog_set_attr() in a sake of nmi-watchdog on P4

perf, x86: Add hw_watchdog_set_attr() in a sake of nmi-watchdog on P4

Due to restriction and specifics of Netburst PMU we need a separated
event for NMI watchdog. In particular every Netburst event
consumes not just a counter and a config register, but also an
additional ESCR register.

Since ESCR registers are grouped upon counters (i.e. if ESCR is occupied
for some event there is no room for another event to enter until its
released) we need to pick up the "least" used ESCR (or the most available
one) for nmi-watchdog purposes -- so MSR_P4_CRU_ESCR2/3 was chosen.

With this patch nmi-watchdog and perf top should be able to run simultaneously.

perf_events: Fix perf buffer watermark setting

Since 2.6.36 (specifically commit d57e34fdd60b ("perf: Simplify the
ring-buffer logic: make perf_buffer_alloc() do everything needed"),
the perf_buffer_init_code() has been mis-setting the buffer watermark
if perf_event_attr.wakeup_events has a non-zero value.

This is because perf_event_attr.wakeup_events is a union with
perf_event_attr.wakeup_watermark.

This commit re-enables the check for perf_event_attr.watermark being
set before continuing with setting a non-default watermark.

This bug is most noticable when you are trying to use PERF_IOC_REFRESH
with a value larger than one and perf_event_attr.wakeup_events is set to
one.  In this case the buffer watermark will be set to 1 and you will
get extraneous POLL_IN overflows rather than POLL_HUP as expected.

[ avoid using attr.wakeup_events when attr.watermark is set ]

So that the parent sort dimension can be registered twice: once
if we add it as an explicit sort dimension (-s parent) and twice
if we request a parent filter (-p foo).

We'll have only one parent sort dimension in the end but this
allows to override the default parent filter with we gave in "-p"
option. The goal of this is to prepare to allow the use of
"-s parent" and "-p foo" at the same time, ie: sort by filtered
parent.

perf tools: Don't display ignored entries on stdio ui

As for newt ui, don't display entries that have been marked
as ignored.

The practical current effect of this is to make parent
filtering really working. Before, entries that were ignored
were given a null parent but were still displayed. This
resulted in some weird effects:

 # Overhead      Command      Shared Object        Symbol
 # ........  ...........  .................  ............
 #

                   --- __lock_acquire

                      |          |
                      |          |--30.75%-- _raw_spin_lock

Discard these from the stdio display.

drm/i915: more struct_mutex locking

When auditing the locking in i915_gem.c (for a prospective change which
I then abandoned), I noticed two places where struct_mutex is not held
across GEM object manipulations that would usually require it.

Since one is in initial setup and the other in driver unload, I'm

it is.

The interface to ->truncate_range is changing very slightly: once "tmpfs:

 For now there is only a slight inefficiency while this remains unapplied,
but it will soon become essential for managing shmem's use of swap.

Change i915_gem_object_truncate() to use shmem_truncate_range() directly:
which should also spare i915 later change if we switch from
inode_operations->truncate_range to file_operations->fallocate.

8 years agomemcg: fix direct softlimit reclaim to be called in limit path
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Mon, 27 Jun 2011 23:18:12 +0000]
memcg: fix direct softlimit reclaim to be called in limit path

Commit d149e3b25d7c ("memcg: add the soft_limit reclaim in global direct
reclaim") adds a softlimit hook to shrink_zones().  By this, soft limit
is called as

   try_to_free_pages()
       do_try_to_free_pages()
           shrink_zones()
               mem_cgroup_soft_limit_reclaim()

Then, direct reclaim is memcg softlimit hint aware, now.

But, the memory cgroup's "limit" path can call softlimit shrinker.

   try_to_free_mem_cgroup_pages()
       do_try_to_free_pages()
           shrink_zones()
               mem_cgroup_soft_limit_reclaim()

This will cause a global reclaim when a memcg hits limit.

This is bug. soft_limit_reclaim() should be called when
scanning_global_lru(sc) == true.

And the commit adds a variable "total_scanned" for counting softlimit
scanned pages....it's not "total".  This patch removes the variable and
update sc->nr_scanned instead of it.  This will affect shrink_slab()'s
scan condition but, global LRU is scanned by softlimit and I think this
change makes sense.

TODO: avoid too much scanning of a zone when softlimit did enough work.

Vasiliy Kulikov [Mon, 27 Jun 2011 23:18:11 +0000]
taskstats: don't allow duplicate entries in listener mode

Currently a single process may register exit handlers unlimited times.
It may lead to a bloated listeners chain and very slow process
terminations.

Eg after 10KK sent TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_REGISTER_CPUMASKs ~300 Mb of
kernel memory is stolen for the handlers chain and "time id" shows 2-7
seconds instead of normal 0.003.  It makes it possible to exhaust all
kernel memory and to eat much of CPU time by triggerring numerous exits
on a single CPU.

The patch limits the number of times a single process may register
itself on a single CPU to one.

One little issue is kept unfixed - as taskstats_exit() is called before
exit_files() in do_exit(), the orphaned listener entry (if it was not
explicitly deregistered) is kept until the next someone's exit() and
implicit deregistration in send_cpu_listeners().  So, if a process
registered itself as a listener exits and the next spawned process gets
the same pid, it would inherit taskstats attributes.

tmpfs: add shmem_read_mapping_page_gfp

Although it is used (by i915) on nothing but tmpfs, read_cache_page_gfp()
is unsuited to tmpfs, because it inserts a page into pagecache before
calling the filesystem's ->readpage: tmpfs may have pages in swapcache
which only it knows how to locate and switch to filecache.

At present tmpfs provides a ->readpage method, and copes with this by
copying pages; but soon we can simplify it by removing its ->readpage.
Provide shmem_read_mapping_page_gfp() now, ready for that transition,

Export shmem_read_mapping_page_gfp() and add it to list in shmem_fs.h,
with shmem_read_mapping_page() inline for the common mapping_gfp case.

(shmem_read_mapping_page_gfp or shmem_read_cache_page_gfp? Generally the
read_mapping_page functions use the mapping's ->readpage, and the
read_cache_page functions use the supplied filler, so I think
read_cache_page_gfp was slightly misnamed.)
