9 years agoperf top: Exit if specified --vmlinux can't be used
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Wed, 27 Jan 2010 23:05:49 +0000]
perf top: Exit if specified --vmlinux can't be used

As we do lazy loading of symtabs we only will know if the
specified vmlinux file is invalid when we actually have a hit in
kernel space and then try to load it. So if we get kernel hits
and there are _no_ symbols in the DSO backing the kernel map,
bail out.

9 years agoperf_events: Fix sample_period transfer on inherit
Peter Zijlstra [Fri, 29 Jan 2010 08:04:26 +0000]
perf_events: Fix sample_period transfer on inherit

One problem with frequency driven counters is that we cannot
predict the rate at which they trigger, therefore we have to
start them at period=1, this causes a ramp up effect. However,
if we fail to propagate the stable state on fork each new child
will have to ramp up again. This can lead to significant
artifacts in sample data.

Stephane Eranian [Mon, 18 Jan 2010 08:58:01 +0000]
perf_events, x86: Improve x86 event scheduling

This patch improves event scheduling by maximizing the use of PMU
registers regardless of the order in which events are created in a group.

The algorithm takes into account the list of counter constraints for each
event. It assigns events to counters from the most constrained, i.e.,
works on only one counter, to the least constrained, i.e., works on any
counter.

Intel Fixed counter events and the BTS special event are also handled via
this algorithm which is designed to be fairly generic.

The patch also updates the validation of an event to use the scheduling
algorithm. This will cause early failure in perf_event_open().

The 2nd version of this patch follows the model used by PPC, by running
the scheduling algorithm and the actual assignment separately. Actual
assignment takes place in hw_perf_enable() whereas scheduling is
implemented in hw_perf_group_sched_in() and x86_pmu_enable().

9 years agoperf: Fix inconsistency between IP and callchain sampling
Anton Blanchard [Mon, 18 Jan 2010 05:47:07 +0000]
perf: Fix inconsistency between IP and callchain sampling

When running perf across all cpus with backtracing (-a -g), sometimes we
get samples without associated backtraces:

    23.44%         init  [kernel]                     [k] restore
    11.46%         init                       eeba0c  [k] 0x00000000eeba0c
     6.77%      swapper  [kernel]                     [k] .perf_ctx_adjust_freq
     5.73%         init  [kernel]                     [k] .__trace_hcall_entry
     4.69%         perf  libc-2.9.so                  [.] 0x0000000006bb8c
                       |
                       |--11.11%-- 0xfffa941bbbc

It turns out the backtrace code has a check for the idle task and the IP
sampling does not. This creates problems when profiling an interrupt
heavy workload (in my case 10Gbit ethernet) since we get no backtraces
for interrupts received while idle (ie most of the workload).

Right now x86 and sh check that current is not NULL, which should never
happen so remove that too.

Idle task's exclusion must be performed from the core code, on top
of perf_event_attr:exclude_idle.

9 years agoperf: Reimplement frequency driven sampling
Peter Zijlstra [Tue, 26 Jan 2010 17:50:16 +0000]
perf: Reimplement frequency driven sampling

There was a bug in the old period code that caused intel_pmu_enable_all()
or native_write_msr_safe() to show up quite high in the profiles.

In staring at that code it made my head hurt, so I rewrote it in a
hopefully simpler fashion. Its now fully symetric between tick and
overflow driven adjustments and uses less data to boot.

The only complication is that it basically wants to do a u128 division.
The code approximates that in a rather simple truncate until it fits
fashion, taking care to balance the terms while truncating.

This version does not generate that sampling artefact.

When a task gets scheduled in. We don't touch the cpu bound events
so the priority order becomes:

So schedule out cpu flexibles when a new task context gets in

task pinned, cpu flexible, task flexible.

getline() is considered as undeclared in util/util.c because
it includes string.h, that in turn includes stdio.h, without
having defined _GNU_SOURCE.

But util.c also includes util.h that handles the _GNU_SOURCE and
all the needed inclusions already. Let's include only util.h
and sys/mman.h which is the only one header not handled by
util.h

9 years agoperf: Export software-only event group characteristic as a flag
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 10 Jan 2010 00:25:51 +0000]
perf: Export software-only event group characteristic as a flag

Before scheduling an event group, we first check if a group can go
on. We first check if the group is made of software only events
first, in which case it is enough to know if the group can be
scheduled in.

For that purpose, we iterate through the whole group, which is
wasteful as we could do this check when we add/delete an event to
a group.

So we create a group_flags field in perf event that can host
characteristics from a group of events, starting with a first
PERF_GROUP_SOFTWARE flag that reduces the check on the fast path.

Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 9 Jan 2010 19:04:47 +0000]
perf/core: Split context's event group list into pinned and non-pinned lists

Split-up struct perf_event_context::group_list into pinned_groups
and flexible_groups (non-pinned).

This first appears to be useless as it duplicates various loops around
the group list handlings.

But it scales better in the fast-path in perf_sched_in(). We don't
anymore iterate twice through the entire list to separate pinned and
non-pinned scheduling. Instead we interate through two distinct lists.

The another desired effect is that it makes easier to define distinct
scheduling rules on both.

Changes in v2:
- Respectively rename pinned_grp_list and
  volatile_grp_list into pinned_groups and flexible_groups as per
  Ingo suggestion.
- Various cleanups

9 years agoperf buildid-list: Introduce --with-hits option
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Fri, 15 Jan 2010 01:45:30 +0000]
perf buildid-list: Introduce --with-hits option

Using this option 'perf buildid-list' will process all samples,
marking the DSOs that had some hits to list just them.

This in turn will be used by a new porcelain, 'perf archive',
that will be just a shell script to create a tarball from the
'perf buildid-list --with-hits' output and the files cached by
'perf record' in ~/.debug.

9 years agoperf record: Encode the domain while synthesizing MMAP events
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Fri, 15 Jan 2010 01:45:28 +0000]
perf record: Encode the domain while synthesizing MMAP events

In the past 'perf record' had to process only userspace MMAP
events, the ones generated in the kernel, but after we reused
the MMAP events to encode the module mapings we ended up adding
them first to the list of userspace DSOs (dsos__user) and to the
kernel one (dsos__kernel).

Fix this by encoding the header.misc field and then using it,
like other parts to decide the right DSOs list to insert/find.

The gotcha here is that since the kernel puts zero in .misc,
which isn't PERF_RECORD_MISC_KERNEL (1 << 1), to differentiate,
we put 1 in .misc.

but those are unrelated to the feature implemented in this
patch, so will get fixed in the next patches, but here are some
results:

1. collect perf.data file on a Fedora 12 machine, x86_64, 64-bit

2. transfer it to a Debian Testing machine, PARISC64, 32-bit

There are some things to fix tho, like the bitmap on the header,
but things are looking good.

9 years agoperf tools: Encode kernel module mappings in perf.data
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Wed, 13 Jan 2010 15:22:17 +0000]
perf tools: Encode kernel module mappings in perf.data

We were always looking at the running machine /proc/modules,
even when processing a perf.data file, which only makes sense
when we're doing 'perf record' and 'perf report' on the same
machine, and in close sucession, or if we don't use modules at
all, right Peter? ;-)

Now, at 'perf record' time we read /proc/modules, find the long
path for modules, and put them as PERF_MMAP events, just like we
did to encode the reloc reference symbol for vmlinux. Talking
about that now it is encoded in .pgoff, so that we can use
.{start,len} to store the address boundaries for the kernel so
that when we reconstruct the kmaps tree we can do lookups right
away, without having to fixup the end of the kernel maps like we
did in the past (and now only in perf record).

One more step in the 'perf archive' direction when we'll finally
be able to collect data in one machine and analyse in another.

Masami Hiramatsu [Wed, 6 Jan 2010 14:45:34 +0000]
perf probe: Support --line option to show probable source-code lines

Add --line option to support showing probable source-code lines.

  perf probe --line SRC:LN[-LN|+NUM]
   or
  perf probe --line FUNC[:LN[-LN|+NUM]]

This option shows source-code with line number if the line can
be probed. Lines without line number (and blue color) means that
the line can not be probed, because debuginfo doesn't have the
information of those lines.

The argument specifies the range of lines, "source.c:100-120"
shows lines between 100th to l20th in source.c file. And
"func:10+20" shows 20 lines from 10th line of func function.

e.g.
 # ./perf probe --line kernel/sched.c:1080

9 years agoperf tools: Handle relocatable kernels
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Tue, 5 Jan 2010 18:50:31 +0000]
perf tools: Handle relocatable kernels

DSOs don't have this problem because the kernel emits a
PERF_MMAP for each new executable mapping it performs on
monitored threads.

To fix the kernel case we simulate the same behaviour, by having
'perf record' to synthesize a PERF_MMAP for the kernel, encoded
like this:

[root@doppio ~]# perf record -a -f sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.344 MB perf.data (~15038 samples) ]
[root@doppio ~]# perf report -D | head -10

0xd0 [0x40]: event: 1
.
. ... raw event: size 64 bytes
.  0000:  01 00 00 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ......@........
.  0010:  00 00 00 81 ff ff ff ff 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ...............
.  0020:  00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 5b 6b 65 72 6e 65 6c 2e ........  [kernel
.  0030:  6b 61 6c 6c 73 79 6d 73 2e 5f 74 65 78 74 5d 00  kallsyms._text]
.  0xd0
[0x40]: PERF_RECORD_MMAP 0/0: [0xffffffff81000000((nil)) @ (nil)]: [kernel.kallsyms._text]

I.e. we identify such event as having:

 .pid      = 0
 .filename = [kernel.kallsyms.REFNAME]
 .start    = REFNAME addr in /proc/kallsyms at 'perf record' time

and use now a hardcoded value of '.text' for REFNAME.

Then, later, in 'perf report', if there are any kernel hits and
thus we need to resolve kernel symbols, we search for REFNAME
and if its address changed, relocation happened and we thus must
change the kernel mapping routines to one that uses .pgoff as
the relocation to apply.

This way we use the same mechanism used for the other DSOs and
don't have to do a two pass in all the kernel symbols.

To avoid the funny:

 [root@doppio ~]# perf record -a -f sleep 2s
 [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
 [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.334 MB perf.data (~14572 samples) ]
 [root@doppio ~]# perf report --no-call-graph
 selected -g but no callchain data. Did you call perf record without -g?

And fix the bug reported by peterz when we do indeed record with
callchains and then ask for a report without:

[root@doppio ~]# perf record -a -g -f sleep 2s
[root@doppio ~]# perf report --no-call-graph

While processing kernel perf callchains, an bad entry can be

In this case, we hang in an endless loop. This can happen in an
x86-32 kernel after processing the last entry in a kernel
stacktrace.

Just stop the stack frame walking after we encounter an invalid

[SCSI] megaraid_sas: remove sysfs poll_mode_io world writeable permissions

/sys/bus/pci/drivers/megaraid_sas/poll_mode_io defaults to being
world-writable, which seems bad (letting any user affect kernel driver
behavior).

This turns off group and user write permissions, so that on typical
production systems only root can write to it.

lib: Introduce generic list_sort function

There are two copies of list_sort() in the tree already, one in the DRM
code, another in ubifs.  Now XFS needs this as well.  Create a generic
list_sort() function from the ubifs version and convert existing users
to it so we don't end up with yet another copy in the tree.
