2013-01-26PM / tracing: remove deprecated power trace APIPaul Gortmaker
The text in Documentation said it would be removed in 2.6.41; the text in the Kconfig said removal in the 3.1 release. Either way you look at it, we are well past both, so push it off a cliff. Note that the POWER_CSTATE and the POWER_PSTATE are part of the legacy tracing API. Remove all tracepoints which use these flags. As can be seen from context, most already have a trace entry via trace_cpu_idle anyways. Also, the cpufreq/cpufreq.c PSTATE one is actually unpaired, as compared to the CSTATE ones which all have a clear start/stop. As part of this, the trace_power_frequency also becomes orphaned, so it too is deleted.

Commit f3f096cfe ("tracing: Provide trace events interface for uprobes") throws a warning about unmet dependencies. The exact warning message is: warning: (UPROBE_EVENT) selects UPROBES which has unmet direct dependencies (UPROBE_EVENTS && PERF_EVENTS) This is due to a typo in arch/Kconfig file. Fix similar typos in the uprobetracer documentation. Also add sample format of a uprobe event in the uprobetracer documentation as suggested by Masami Hiramatsu.

Implements trace_event support for uprobes.

2011-07-15tracing/kprobes: Support module init function probingMasami Hiramatsu
To support probing module init functions, kprobe-tracer allows user to define a probe on non-existed function when it is given with a module name. This also enables user to set a probe on a function on a specific module, even if a same name (but different) function is locally defined in another module. The module name must be in the front of function name and separated by a ':'. e.g. btrfs:btrfs_init_sysfs Signed-off-by: Masami Hiramatsu <masami.hiramatsu.pt@hitachi.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20110627072656.6528.89970.stgit@fedora15 Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>

2011-03-09tracing: Add an 'overwrite' trace_option.David Sharp
Add an "overwrite" trace_option for ftrace to control whether the buffer should be overwritten on overflow or not. The default remains to overwrite old events when the buffer is full. This patch adds the option to instead discard newest events when the buffer is full. This is useful to get a snapshot of traces just after enabling traces. Dropping the current event is also a simpler code path.

2010-12-22mm: vmscan: tracepoint: account for scanned pages similarly for both ftrace ↵Mel Gorman
and vmstat When correlating ftrace results with /proc/vmstat, I noticed that the reporting scripts value for "pages scanned" differed significantly. Both values were "right" depending on how you look at it. The difference is due to vmstat only counting scanning of the inactive list towards pages scanned. The analysis script for the tracepoint counts active and inactive list yielding a far higher value than vmstat. The resulting scanning/reclaim ratio looks much worse. The tracepoint is ok but this patch updates the reporting script so that the report values for scanned are similar to vmstat.

2010-10-26tracing, vmscan: add trace events for LRU list shrinkingMel Gorman
There have been numerous reports of stalls that pointed at the problem being somewhere in the VM. There are multiple roots to the problems which means dealing with any of the root problems in isolation is tricky to justify on their own and they would still need integration testing. This patch series puts together two different patch sets which in combination should tackle some of the root causes of latency problems being reported. Patch 1 adds a tracepoint for shrink_inactive_list. For this series, the most important results is being able to calculate the scanning/reclaim ratio as a measure of the amount of work being done by page reclaim. Patch 2 accounts for time spent in congestion_wait. Patches 3-6 were originally developed by Kosaki Motohiro but reworked for this series. It has been noted that lumpy reclaim is far too aggressive and trashes the system somewhat. As SLUB uses high-order allocations, a large cost incurred by lumpy reclaim will be noticeable. It was also reported during transparent hugepage support testing that lumpy reclaim was trashing the system and these patches should mitigate that problem without disabling lumpy reclaim. Patch 7 adds wait_iff_congested() and replaces some callers of congestion_wait(). wait_iff_congested() only sleeps if there is a BDI that is currently congested. Patch 8 notes that any BDI being congested is not necessarily a problem because there could be multiple BDIs of varying speeds and numberous zones. It attempts to track when a zone being reclaimed contains many pages backed by a congested BDI and if so, reclaimers wait on the congestion queue. I ran a number of tests with monitoring on X86, X86-64 and PPC64. Each machine had 3G of RAM and the CPUs were X86: Intel P4 2-core X86-64: AMD Phenom 4-core PPC64: PPC970MP Each used a single disk and the onboard IO controller. Dirty ratio was left at 20. I'm just going to report for X86-64 and PPC64 in a vague attempt to keep this report short. Four kernels were tested each based on v2.6.36-rc4 traceonly-v2r2: Patches 1 and 2 to instrument vmscan reclaims and congestion_wait lowlumpy-v2r3: Patches 1-6 to test if lumpy reclaim is better waitcongest-v2r3: Patches 1-7 to only wait on congestion waitwriteback-v2r4: Patches 1-8 to detect when a zone is congested nocongest-v1r5: Patches 1-3 for testing wait_iff_congestion nodirect-v1r5: Patches 1-10 to disable filesystem writeback for better IO The tests run were as follows kernbench compile-based benchmark.

Will be re-run in the future as read-write micro-mapped-file-stream This is a micro-benchmark from Johannes Weiner that accesses a large sparse-file through mmap(). It was configured to run in only single-CPU mode but can be indicative of how well page reclaim identifies suitable pages. stress-highalloc Tries to allocate huge pages under heavy load. kernbench, iozone and sysbench did not report any performance regression on any machine. sysbench did pressure the system lightly and there was reclaim activity but there were no difference of major interest between the kernels.

The ratio of scanning/reclaimed remains roughly similar. The downside is that kswapd and direct reclaim was awake longer and for a larger percentage of the overall workload. It's possible there were big differences in the amount of time spent reclaiming slab pages between the different kernels which is plausible considering that the micro tests runs after fsmark and sysbench.

2010-04-21tracing: Dump either the oops's cpu source or all cpus buffersFrederic Weisbecker
The ftrace_dump_on_oops kernel parameter, sysctl and sysrq let one dump every cpu buffers when an oops or panic happens. It's nice when you have few cpus but it may take ages if have many, plus you miss the real origin of the problem in all the cpu traces. Sometimes, all you need is to dump the cpu buffer that triggered the opps, most of the time it is our main interest. This patch modifies ftrace_dump_on_oops to handle this choice. The ftrace_dump_on_oops kernel parameter, when it comes alone, has the same behaviour than before. But ftrace_dump_on_oops=orig_cpu will only dump the buffer of the cpu that oops'ed. Similarly, sysctl kernel.ftrace_dump_on_oops=1 and echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/ftrace_dump_on_oops keep their previous behaviour. But setting 2 jumps into cpu origin dump mode. v2: Fix double setup v3: Fix spelling issues reported by Randy Dunlap v4: Also update __ftrace_dump in the selftests Signed-off-by: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Acked-by: David S.

2010-04-14tracing/kprobes: Support basic types on dynamic eventsMasami Hiramatsu
Support basic types of integer (u8, u16, u32, u64, s8, s16, s32, s64) in kprobe tracer. With this patch, users can specify above basic types on each arguments after ':'. If omitted, the argument type is set as unsigned long (u32 or u64, arch-dependent). e.g. echo 'p account_system_time+0 hardirq_offset=%si:s32' > kprobe_events adds a probe recording hardirq_offset in signed-32bits value on the entry of account_system_time.

Most implementations of arch_syscall_addr() are the same, so create a default version in common code and move the one piece that differs (the syscall table) to asm/syscall.h. New arch ports don't have to waste time copying & pasting this simple function. The s390/sparc versions need to be different, so document why.
