9 years agoperf probe: Fix add-probe command syntax without --add option
Masami Hiramatsu [Tue, 8 Dec 2009 22:02:54 +0000]
perf probe: Fix add-probe command syntax without --add option

Fix add-probe command syntax without --add option.
perf-probe supports add-probe command without --add
option. But it treats each argument as an event definition.
e.g.

perf probe func arg1 arg2

 is interpreted as

perf probe --add func --add arg1 --add arg2

But it may be useless in many cases.

This patch fixes this syntax to fold those arguments into
one event definition if there is no --add option. With this
change, above command is interpreted as below;

perf probe --add "func arg1 arg2"

9 years agohw-breakpoints: Fix task-bound breakpoint slot allocation
Frederic Weisbecker [Mon, 7 Dec 2009 05:46:48 +0000]
hw-breakpoints: Fix task-bound breakpoint slot allocation

Whatever the context nature of a breakpoint, we always perform the
following constraint checks before allocating it a slot:

- Check the number of pinned breakpoint bound the concerned cpus
- Check the max number of task-bound breakpoints that are belonging
  to a task.
- Add both and see if we have a reamining slot for the new breakpoint

This is the right thing to do when we are about to register a cpu-only
bound breakpoint. But not if we are dealing with a task bound
breakpoint. What we want in this case is:

- Check the number of pinned breakpoint bound the concerned cpus
- Check the number of breakpoints that already belong to the task
  in which the breakpoint to register is bound to.
- Add both

This fixes a regression that makes the "firefox -g" command fail to
register breakpoints once we deal with a secondary thread.

perf_event: Fix raw event processing

We use 'data.raw_data' parameter to call process_raw_event(),
but data.raw_data buffer not include data size. it can make perf
tool crash.

This bug was introduced by commit 180f95e29a ("perf: Make common
SAMPLE_EVENT parser").

perf tools: Misc small fixes

- util/header.c
"len" is aligned to 64. So, it tries to write the out of
long_name buffer.

So, this use "zero_buf" to write aligned area.

- util/trace-event-read.c
"size" is not including nul byte. So, this allocates it, and set '\0'.

- util/trace-event-parse.c
It needs parens to calc correct size.

perf: Make common SAMPLE_EVENT parser

Currently, sample event data is parsed for each commands, and it
is assuming that the data is not including other data. (E.g.
timechart, trace, etc. can't parse the event if it has
PERF_SAMPLE_CALLCHAIN)

So, even if we record the superset data for multiple commands at
a time, commands can't parse. etc.

To fix it, this makes common sample event parser, and use it to
parse sample event correctly. (PERF_SAMPLE_READ is unsupported
for now though, it seems to be not using.)

9 years agox86: Fixup wrong irq frame link in stacktraces
Frederic Weisbecker [Sun, 6 Dec 2009 04:34:27 +0000]
x86: Fixup wrong irq frame link in stacktraces

When we enter in irq, two things can happen to preserve the link
to the previous frame pointer:

- If we were in an irq already, we don't switch to the irq stack
  as we are inside. We just need to save the previous frame
  pointer and to link the new one to the previous.

- Otherwise we need another level of indirection. We enter the irq with
  the previous stack. We save the previous bp inside and make bp
  pointing to its saved address. Then we switch to the irq stack and
  push bp another time but to the new stack. This makes two levels to
  dereference instead of one.

In the second case, the current stacktrace code omits the second level
and loses the frame pointer accuracy. The stack that follows will then
be considered as unreliable.

Handling that makes the perf callchain happier.

9 years agox86: Fixup wrong debug exception frame link in stacktraces
Frederic Weisbecker [Sat, 5 Dec 2009 23:52:56 +0000]
x86: Fixup wrong debug exception frame link in stacktraces

While dumping a stacktrace, the end of the exception stack won't link
the frame pointer to the previous stack.

The interrupted stack will then be considered as unreliable and ignored
by perf, as the frame pointer is unreliable itself.

This happens because we overwrite the frame pointer that links to the
interrupted frame with the address of the exception stack. This is
done in order to reserve space inside.
But rbp has been chosen here only because it is not a scratch register,
so that the address of the exception stack remains in rbp after calling
do_debug(), we can then release the exception stack space without the
need to retrieve its address again.

But we can pick another non-scratch register to do that, so that we
preserve the link to the interrupted stack frame in the stacktraces.

Just randomly choose r12. Every registers are saved just before and
restored just after calling do_debug(). And r12 is not used in the
middle, which makes it a perfect candidate.

struct perf_event::event callback was called when a breakpoint
triggers. But this is a rather opaque callback, pretty
tied-only to the breakpoint API and not really integrated into perf

We prefer to use overflow_handler() as it fits into the perf events
rules, being called only when we overflow.

hw-breakpoints: Keep track of user disabled breakpoints

When we disable a breakpoint through dr7, we unregister it right
away, making us lose track of its corresponding address
register value.

It means that the following sequence would be unsupported:

 - set address in dr0
 - enable it through dr7
 - disable it through dr7
 - enable it through dr7

because we lost the address register value when we disabled the
breakpoint.

Don't unregister the disabled breakpoints but rather disable
them.

9 years agotracing: Add DEFINE_EVENT(), DEFINE_SINGLE_EVENT() support to docbook
Jason Baron [Tue, 1 Dec 2009 17:18:49 +0000]
tracing: Add DEFINE_EVENT(), DEFINE_SINGLE_EVENT() support to docbook

The introduction of the new 'DECLARE_EVENT_CLASS()' obviates the
need for the 'TRACE_EVENT()' macro in some cases. Thus, docbook
style comments that used to live with 'TRACE_EVENT()' are now
moved to 'DEFINE_EVENT()'. Thus, we need to make the docbook
system understand the new 'DEFINE_EVENT()' macro. In addition
I've tried to futureproof the patch, by also adding support for
'DEFINE_SINGLE_EVENT()', since there has been discussion about
renaming: TRACE_EVENT() -> DEFINE_SINGLE_EVENT().

Without this patch the tracepoint docbook fails to build.

I've verified that this patch correctly builds the tracepoint
docbook which currently covers signals, and irqs.

Changes in v2:
 - properly indent perl 'if' statements

9 years agoperf trace: Add interface to access perf data from Perl handlers
Tom Zanussi [Wed, 25 Nov 2009 07:15:50 +0000]
perf trace: Add interface to access perf data from Perl handlers

The Perl scripting support for perf trace allows most of a trace
event's data to be accessed directly as handler arguments, but
not all of it e.g. the less common fields aren't passed in.  To
give scripts access to the other fields and/or any other data or
metadata in the main perf executable that might be useful, a way
to access the C data in perf from Perl is needed; this patch
uses the Perl XS facility to do it for the common_xxx event
fields not passed to handler functions.

Context.pm exports three functions to Perl scripts that access
fields for the current event by calling back into perf:
common_pc(), common_flags() and common_lock_depth().  Support
for common_flags() field values was added to Core.pm and a
script used to sanity check these and other basic scripting
features, check-perf-trace.pl, was also added.

9 years agoperf trace: Add scripting ops
Tom Zanussi [Wed, 25 Nov 2009 07:15:46 +0000]
perf trace: Add scripting ops

Adds an interface, scripting_ops, that when implemented for a
particular scripting language enables built-in support for trace
stream processing using that language.

The interface is designed to enable full-fledged language
interpreters to be embedded inside the perf executable and
thereby make the full capabilities of the supported languages
available for trace processing.

See below for details on the interface.

This patch also adds a couple command-line options to 'perf
trace':

The -s option option is used to specify the script to be run.
Script names that can be used with -s take the form:

[language spec:]scriptname[.ext]

Scripting languages register a set of 'language specs' that can
be used to specify scripts for the registered languages.  The
specs can be used either as prefixes or extensions.

If [language spec:] is used, the script is taken as a script of
the matching language regardless of any extension it might have.
 If [language spec:] is not used, [.ext] is used to look up the
language it corresponds to.  Language specs are case
insensitive.

e.g. Perl scripts can be specified in the following ways:

Perl:scriptname
pl:scriptname.py # extension ignored
PL:scriptname
scriptname.pl
scriptname.perl

The -g [language spec] option gives users an easy starting point
for writing scripts in the specified language.  Scripting
support for a particular language can implement a
generate_script() scripting op that outputs an empty (or
near-empty) set of handlers for all the events contained in a
given perf.data trace file - this option gives users a direct
way to access that.

Adding support for a scripting language
---------------------------------------

The main thing that needs to be done do add support for a new
language is to implement the scripting_ops interface:

It consists of the following four functions:

    start_script()
    stop_script()
    process_event()
    generate_script()

start_script() is called before any events are processed, and is
meant to give the scripting language support an opportunity to
set things up to receive events e.g. create and initialize an
instance of a language interpreter.

stop_script() is called after all events are processed, and is
meant to give the scripting language support an opportunity to
clean up e.g. destroy the interpreter instance, etc.

process_event() is called once for each event and takes as its
main parameter a pointer to the binary trace event record to be
processed. The implementation is responsible for picking out the
binary fields from the event record and sending them to the
script handler function associated with that event e.g. a
function derived from the event name it's meant to handle e.g.
'sched::sched_switch()'.  The 'format' information for trace
events can be used to parse the binary data and map it into a
form usable by a given scripting language; see the Perl
implemention in subsequent patches for one possible way to
leverage the existing trace format parsing code in perf and map
that info into specific scripting language types.

generate_script() should generate a ready-to-run script for the
current set of events in the trace, preferably with bodies that
print out every field for each event.  Again, look at the Perl
implementation for clues as to how that can be done.  This is an
optional, but very useful op.

Support for a given language should also add a language-specific
setup function and call it from setup_scripting().  The
language-specific setup function associates the the scripting
ops for that language with one or more 'language specifiers'
(see below) using script_spec_register().  When a script name is
specified on the command line, the scripting ops associated with
the specified language are used to instantiate and use the
appropriate interpreter to process the trace stream.

In general, it should be relatively easy to add support for a
new language, especially if the language implementation supports
an interface allowing an interpreter to be 'embedded' inside
another program (in this case the containing program will be
'perf trace'). If so, it should be relatively straightforward to
translate trace events into invocations of user-defined script
functions where e.g. the function name corresponds to the event
type and the function parameters correspond to the event fields.
 The event and field type information exported by the event
tracing infrastructure (via the event 'format' files) should be
enough to parse and send any piece of trace data to the user
script.  The easiest way to see how this can be done would be to
look at the Perl implementation contained in
perf/util/trace-event-perl.c/.h.

There are a couple of other things that aren't covered by the
scripting_ops or setup interface and are technically optional,
but should be implemented if possible.  One of these is support
for 'flag' and 'symbolic' fields e.g. being able to use more
human-readable values such as 'GFP_KERNEL' or
HI/BLOCK_IOPOLL/TASKLET in place of raw flag values.  See the
Perl implementation to see how this can be done. The other thing
is support for 'calling back' into the perf executable to access
e.g. uncommon fields not passed by default into handler
functions, or any metadata the implementation might want to make
available to users via the language interface.  Again, see the
Perl implementation for examples.

9 years agoperf tools: Consolidate symbol resolving across all tools
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Fri, 27 Nov 2009 18:29:23 +0000]
perf tools: Consolidate symbol resolving across all tools

Now we have a very high level routine for simple tools to
process IP sample events:

int event__preprocess_sample(const event_t *self,
     struct addr_location *al,
     symbol_filter_t filter)

It receives the event itself and will insert new threads in the
global threads list and resolve the map and symbol, filling all
this info into the new addr_location struct, so that tools like
annotate and report can further process the event by creating
hist_entries in their specific way (with or without callgraphs,
etc).

It in turn uses the new next layer function:

void thread__find_addr_location(struct thread *self, u8 cpumode,
enum map_type type, u64 addr,
struct addr_location *al,
symbol_filter_t filter)

This one will, given a thread (userspace or the kernel kthread
one), will find the given type (MAP__FUNCTION now, MAP__VARIABLE
too in the near future) at the given cpumode, taking vdsos into
account (userspace hit, but kernel symbol) and will fill all
these details in the addr_location given.

Tools that need a more compact API for plain function
resolution, like 'kmem', can use this other one:

struct symbol *thread__find_function(struct thread *self, u64 addr,
     symbol_filter_t filter)

So, to resolve a kernel symbol, that is all the 'kmem' tool
needs, its just a matter of calling:

sym = thread__find_function(kthread, addr, NULL);

The 'filter' parameter is needed because we do lazy
parsing/loading of ELF symtabs or /proc/kallsyms.

With this we remove more code duplication all around, which is
always good, huh? :-)

9 years agoperf tools: Reorganize event processing routines, lotsa dups killed

perf tools: Reorganize event processing routines, lotsa dups killed

While implementing event__preprocess_sample, that will do all of
the symbol lookup in one convenient function, I noticed that
util/process_event.[ch] were not being used at all, then started
looking if there were other functions that could be shared
and...

All those functions really don't need to receive offset + head,
the only thing they did was common to all of them, so do it at
one place instead.

Stats about number of each type of event processed now is done
in a central place.

perf symbols: Support multiple symtabs in struct thread

Making the routines that were so far specific to the kernel maps
useful for all threads.

This is done by making the kernel maps be contained in a kernel
"thread".

This gets the kernel specific routines closer to the userspace
counterparts, which will help in reducing the boilerplate for
resolving a symbol, as will be demonstrated in the next patches.
