UART Perf Tools
The UART Perf Tools project is a project to develop a small set of tools to use the Linux perf_event framework. Most of the tools are built to be used for data acquisition in our research projects.
Monitor an application and write performance counter statistics to STDOUT. The tool dumps the statistics on exit or when receiving a SIGUSR1.
We normally use this tool to test performance counter settings and to measure whole-program statistics.
Similar to rawperf, but instead of monitoring a single application, it starts a group of applications and monitors all of the applications.
Just like rawperf, it dumps application statistics on exit and when receiving a SIGUSR1. Unlike rawperf, counter statistics are always printed on STDERR.
Perfgroup automatically pins target applications to OS threads. By default, it pins applications to threads sequentially, starting with thread 0. The '-c'/'--cpu-list' option can be used to specify custom mappings between target applications and OS threads.
Monitor an application and dump the raw perf event ring buffer data to STDOUT or a file.
NOTE: The output file format is not considered stable. There is no guarantee that the output from two different versions of perfrecord will be compatible.
See perf_file.c for a description of the file header. Except for the header, the file is simply a dump of the kernel ring buffer.
Process an output file from perfrecord and create a human readable dump of the file.
