2013-02-14perf buildid-cache: Add --update optionNamhyung Kim
When adding vmlinux file to build-id cache, it'd be fail since kallsyms dso with a same build-id was already added by perf record. So one needs to remove the kallsyms first to add vmlinux into the cache. Add --update option for doing it at once.

2013-02-08uprobes/perf: Avoid uprobe_apply() whenever possibleOleg Nesterov
uprobe_perf_open/close call the costly uprobe_apply() every time, we can avoid it if: - "nr_systemwide != 0" is not changed. - There is another process/thread with the same ->mm. - copy_proccess() does inherit_event(). dup_mmap() preserves the inserted breakpoints. - event->attr.enable_on_exec == T, we can rely on uprobe_mmap() called by exec/mmap paths. - tp_target is exiting. Only _close() checks PF_EXITING, I don't think TRACE_REG_PERF_OPEN can hit the dying task too often. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>
2013-02-08uprobes/perf: Teach trace_uprobe/perf code to use UPROBE_HANDLER_REMOVEOleg Nesterov
Change uprobe_trace_func() and uprobe_perf_func() to return "int". Change uprobe_dispatcher() to return "trace_ret | perf_ret" although this is not needed, currently TP_FLAG_TRACE/TP_FLAG_PROFILE are mutually exclusive. The only functional change is that uprobe_perf_func() checks the filtering too and returns UPROBE_HANDLER_REMOVE if nobody wants to trace current. Testing: # perf probe -x /lib/libc.so.6 syscall # perf record -e probe_libc:syscall -i perl -e 'fork; syscall -1 for 1..10; wait' # perf report --show-total-period 100.00% 10 perl libc-2.8.so [.] syscall Before this patch: # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile /lib/libc.so.6 syscall 20 A child process doesn't have a counter, but still it hits this breakoint "copied" by dup_mmap(). After the patch: # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile /lib/libc.so.6 syscall 11 The child process hits this int3 only once and does unapply_uprobe().

2013-02-08uprobes/perf: Teach trace_uprobe/perf code to pre-filterOleg Nesterov
Finally implement uprobe_perf_filter() which checks ->nr_systemwide or ->perf_events to figure out whether we need to insert the breakpoint. uprobe_perf_open/close are changed to do uprobe_apply(true/false) when the new perf event comes or goes away. Note that currently this is very suboptimal: - uprobe_register() called by TRACE_REG_PERF_REGISTER becomes a heavy nop, consumer->filter() always returns F at this stage. As it was already discussed we need uprobe_register_only() to avoid the costly register_for_each_vma() when possible. - uprobe_apply() is oftenly overkill. Unless "nr_systemwide != 0" changes we need uprobe_apply_mm(), unapply_uprobe() is almost what we need. - uprobe_apply() can be simply avoided sometimes, see the next changes. Testing: # perf probe -x /lib/libc.so.6 syscall # perl -e 'syscall -1 while 1' & [1] 530 # perf record -e probe_libc:syscall perl -e 'syscall -1 for 1..10; sleep 1' # perf report --show-total-period 100.00% 10 perl libc-2.8.so [.] syscall Before this patch: # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile /lib/libc.so.6 syscall 79291 A huge ->nrhit == 79291 reflects the fact that the background process 530 constantly hits this breakpoint too, even if doesn't contribute to the output. After the patch: # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile /lib/libc.so.6 syscall 10 This shows that only the target process was punished by int3. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>
2013-02-08uprobes/perf: Teach trace_uprobe/perf code to track the active perf_event'sOleg Nesterov
Introduce "struct trace_uprobe_filter" which records the "active" perf_event's attached to ftrace_event_call. For the start we simply use list_head, we can optimize this later if needed. For example, we do not really need to record an event with ->parent != NULL, we can rely on parent->child_list. And we can certainly do some optimizations for the case when 2 events have the same ->tp_target or tp_target->mm. Change trace_uprobe_register() to process TRACE_REG_PERF_OPEN/CLOSE and add/del this perf_event to the list. We can probably avoid any locking, but lets start with the "obvioulsy correct" trace_uprobe_filter->rwlock which protects everything. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>
2013-02-08uprobes: Introduce uprobe_apply()Oleg Nesterov
Currently it is not possible to change the filtering constraints after uprobe_register(), so a consumer can not, say, start to trace a task/mm which was previously filtered out, or remove the no longer needed bp's. Introduce uprobe_apply() which simply does register_for_each_vma() again to consult uprobe_consumer->filter() and install/remove the breakpoints. The only complication is that register_for_each_vma() can no longer assume that uprobe->consumers should be consulter if is_register == T, so we change it to accept "struct uprobe_consumer *new" instead. Unlike uprobe_register(), uprobe_apply(true) doesn't do "unregister" if register_for_each_vma() fails, it is up to caller to handle the error. Note: we probably need to cleanup the current interface, it is strange that uprobe_apply/unregister need inode/offset. We should either change uprobe_register() to return "struct uprobe *", or add a private ->uprobe member in uprobe_consumer. And in the long term uprobe_apply() should take a single argument, uprobe or consumer, even "bool add" should go away. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>
2013-02-08perf: Introduce hw_perf_event->tp_target and ->tp_listOleg Nesterov
sys_perf_event_open()->perf_init_event(event) is called before find_get_context(event), this means that event->ctx == NULL when class->reg(TRACE_REG_PERF_REGISTER/OPEN) is called and thus it can't know if this event is per-task or system-wide. This patch adds hw_perf_event->tp_target for PERF_TYPE_TRACEPOINT, this is analogous to PERF_TYPE_BREAKPOINT/bp_target we already have. The patch also moves ->bp_target up so that it can overlap with the new member, this can help the compiler to generate the better code. trace_uprobe_register() will use it for prefiltering to avoid the unnecessary breakpoints in mm's we do not want to trace. ->tp_target doesn't have its own reference, but we can rely on the fact that either sys_perf_event_open() holds a reference, or it is equal to event->ctx->task. So this pointer is always valid until free_event(). Also add the "struct list_head tp_list" into this union. It is not strictly necessary, but it can simplify the next changes and we can add it for free. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>
2013-02-08uprobes/perf: Always increment trace_uprobe->nhitOleg Nesterov
Move tu->nhit++ from uprobe_trace_func() to uprobe_dispatcher(). ->nhit counts how many time we hit the breakpoint inserted by this uprobe, we do not want to loose this info if uprobe was enabled by sys_perf_event_open().

trace_uprobe trace_uprobe->consumer and "struct uprobe_trace_consumer" add the unnecessary indirection and complicate the code for no reason.

2013-02-08uprobes/tracing: Introduce is_trace_uprobe_enabled()Oleg Nesterov
probe_event_enable/disable() check tu->consumer != NULL to avoid the wrong uprobe_register/unregister(). We are going to kill this pointer and "struct uprobe_trace_consumer", so we add the new helper, is_trace_uprobe_enabled(), which can rely on TP_FLAG_TRACE/TP_FLAG_PROFILE instead. Note: the current logic doesn't look optimal, it is not clear why TP_FLAG_TRACE/TP_FLAG_PROFILE are mutually exclusive, we will probably change this later. Also kill the unused TP_FLAG_UPROBE.

2013-02-08uprobes/tracing: Ensure inode != NULL in create_trace_uprobe()Oleg Nesterov
probe_event_enable/disable() check tu->inode != NULL at the start. This is ugly, if igrab() can fail create_trace_uprobe() should not succeed and "postpone" the failure. And S_ISREG(inode->i_mode) check added by d24d7dbf is not safe. Note: alloc_uprobe() should probably check igrab() != NULL as well.

2013-02-08uprobes/tracing: Fully initialize uprobe_trace_consumer before uprobe_register()Oleg Nesterov
probe_event_enable() does uprobe_register() and only after that sets utc->tu and tu->consumer/flags. This can race with uprobe_dispatcher() which can miss these assignments or see them out of order. Nothing really bad can happen, but this doesn't look clean/safe. And this does not allow to use uprobe_consumer->filter() we are going to add, it is called by uprobe_register() and it needs utc->tu. Change this code to initialize everything before uprobe_register(), and reset tu->consumer/flags if it fails. We can't race with event_disable(), the caller holds event_mutex, and if we could the code would be wrong anyway. In fact I think uprobe_trace_consumer should die, it buys nothing but complicates the code. We can simply add uprobe_consumer into trace_uprobe.

2013-02-08uprobes: Add exports for module useJosh Stone
The original pull message for uprobes (commit 654443e2) noted: This tree includes uprobes support in 'perf probe' - but SystemTap (and other tools) can take advantage of user probe points as well. In order to actually be usable in module-based tools like SystemTap, the interface needs to be exported. This patch first adds the obvious exports for uprobe_register and uprobe_unregister. Then it also adds one for task_user_regset_view, which is necessary to get the correct state of userspace registers.

2013-02-08uprobes: Do not allocate current->utask unnecessaryOleg Nesterov
handle_swbp() does get_utask() before can_skip_sstep() for no reason, we do not need ->utask if can_skip_sstep() succeeds. Move get_utask() to pre_ssout() who actually starts to use it.

Change handle_swbp() to set regs->ip = bp_vaddr in advance, this is what consumer->handler() needs but uprobe_get_swbp_addr() is not exported.

2013-02-08uprobes: Teach handler_chain() to filter out the probed taskOleg Nesterov
Currrently the are 2 problems with pre-filtering: 1. It is not possible to add/remove a task (mm) after uprobe_register() 2. A forked child inherits all breakpoints and uprobe_consumer can not control this. This patch does the first step to improve the filtering. handler_chain() removes the breakpoints installed by this uprobe from current->mm if all handlers return UPROBE_HANDLER_REMOVE. Note that handler_chain() relies on ->register_rwsem to avoid the race with uprobe_register/unregister which can add/del a consumer, or even remove and then insert the new uprobe at the same address. Perhaps we will add uprobe_apply_mm(uprobe, mm, is_register) and teach copy_mm() to do filter(UPROBE_FILTER_FORK), but I think this change makes sense anyway. Note: instead of checking the retcode from uc->handler, we could add uc->filter(UPROBE_FILTER_BPHIT). But I think this is not optimal to call 2 hooks in a row. This buys nothing, and if handler/filter do something nontrivial they will probably do the same work twice.

2013-02-08uprobes: Reintroduce uprobe_consumer->filter()Oleg Nesterov
Finally add uprobe_consumer->filter() and change consumer_filter() to actually call this method. Note that ->filter() accepts mm_struct, not task_struct. Because: 1. We do not have for_each_mm_user(mm, task). 2. Even if we implement for_each_mm_user(), ->filter() can use it itself. 3. It is not clear who will actually need this interface to do the "nontrivial" filtering. Another argument is "enum uprobe_filter_ctx", consumer->filter() can use it to figure out why/where it was called. For example, perhaps we can add UPROBE_FILTER_PRE_REGISTER used by build_map_info() to quickly "nack" the unwanted mm's. In this case consumer should know that it is called under ->i_mmap_mutex. See the previous discussion at http://marc.info/?t=135214229700002 Perhaps we should pass more arguments, vma/vaddr? Note: this patch obviously can't help to filter out the child created by fork(), this will be addressed later.

2013-02-08uprobes: Rationalize the usage of filter_chain()Oleg Nesterov
filter_chain() was added into install_breakpoint/remove_breakpoint to simplify the initial changes but this is sub-optimal. This patch shifts the callsite to the callers, register_for_each_vma() and uprobe_mmap(). This way: - It will be easier to add the new arguments. This is the main reason, we can do more optimizations later. - register_for_each_vma(is_register => true) can be optimized, we only need to consult the new consumer. The previous consumers were already asked when they called uprobe_register(). This patch also moves the MMF_HAS_UPROBES check from remove_breakpoint(), this allows to avoid the potentionally costly filter_chain(). Note that register_for_each_vma(is_register => false) doesn't really need to take ->consumer_rwsem, but I don't think it makes sense to optimize this and introduce filter_chain_lockless().

2013-02-08uprobes: Kill uprobes_mutex[], separate alloc_uprobe() and __uprobe_register()Oleg Nesterov
uprobe_register() and uprobe_unregister() are the only users of mutex_lock(uprobes_hash(inode)), and the only reason why we can't simply remove it is that we need to ensure that delete_uprobe() is not possible after alloc_uprobe() and before consumer_add(). IOW, we need to ensure that when we take uprobe->register_rwsem this uprobe is still valid and we didn't race with _unregister() which called delete_uprobe() in between. With this patch uprobe_register() simply checks uprobe_is_active() and retries if it hits this very unlikely race. uprobes_mutex[] is no longer needed and can be removed. There is another reason for this change, prepare_uprobe() should be folded into alloc_uprobe() and we do not want to hold the extra locks around read_mapping_page/etc. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Acked-by: Anton Arapov <anton@redhat.com> Acked-by: Srikar Dronamraju <srikar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2013-02-08uprobes: Introduce uprobe_is_active()Oleg Nesterov
The lifetime of uprobe->rb_node and uprobe->inode is not refcounted, delete_uprobe() is called when we detect that uprobe has no consumers, and it would be deadly wrong to do this twice. Change delete_uprobe() to WARN() if it was already called. We use RB_CLEAR_NODE() to mark uprobe "inactive", then RB_EMPTY_NODE() can be used to detect this case.

2013-02-08uprobes: Introduce uprobe->register_rwsemOleg Nesterov
Introduce uprobe->register_rwsem. It is taken for writing around __uprobe_register/unregister. Change handler_chain() to use this sem rather than consumer_rwsem. The main reason for this change is that we have the nasty problem with mmap_sem/consumer_rwsem dependency. filter_chain() needs to protect uprobe->consumers like handler_chain(), but they can not use the same lock. filter_chain() can be called under ->mmap_sem (currently this is always true), but we want to allow ->handler() to play with the probed task's memory, and this needs ->mmap_sem. Alternatively we could use srcu, but synchronize_srcu() is very slow and ->register_rwsem allows us to do more. In particular, we can teach handler_chain() to do remove_breakpoint() if this bp is "nacked" by all consumers, we know that we can't race with the new consumer which does uprobe_register(). See also the next patches. uprobes_mutex[] is almost ready to die. Signed-off-by: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com> Acked-by: Srikar Dronamraju <srikar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
2013-02-08uprobes: _register() should always do register_for_each_vma(true)Oleg Nesterov
To support the filtering uprobe_register() should do register_for_each_vma(true) every time the new consumer comes, we need to install the previously nacked breakpoints. Note: - uprobes_mutex[] should die, what it actually protects is alloc_uprobe(). - UPROBE_RUN_HANDLER should die too, obviously it can't work unless uprobe has a single consumer. The consumer should serialize with _register/_unregister itself. Or this flag should live in uprobe_consumer->state. - Perhaps we can do some optimizations later. For example, if filter_chain() never returns false uprobe can record this fact and avoid the unnecessary register_for_each_vma().

uprobe_unregister() removes the breakpoints only if the last consumer goes away. To support the filtering it should do this every time, we want to remove the breakpoints which nobody else want to keep. Note: given that filter_chain() is not actually implemented, this patch itself doesn't change the behaviour yet, register_for_each_vma(false) is a heavy "nop" unless there are no more consumers.

Add the new helper filter_chain(). Currently it is only placeholder, the comment explains what is should do. We will change it later to consult every consumer to decide whether we need to install the swbp. Until then it works as if any consumer returns true, this matches the current behavior. Change install_breakpoint() to call filter_chain() instead of checking uprobe->consumers != NULL. We obviously need this, and this equally closes the race with _unregister(). Change remove_breakpoint() to call this helper too. Currently this is pointless because remove_breakpoint() is only called when the last consumer goes away, but we will change this.

2013-02-08uprobes: Kill the pointless inode/uc checks in register/unregisterOleg Nesterov
register/unregister verifies that inode/uc != NULL. For what? This really looks like "hide the potential problem", the caller should pass the valid data. register() also checks uc->next == NULL, probably to prevent the double-register but the caller can do other stupid/wrong things. If we do this check, then we should document that uc->next should be cleared before register() and add BUG_ON(). Also add the small comment about the i_size_read() check.

2013-02-06perf tools: Fix calloc argument orderingPaul Gortmaker
A sweep of the kernel for regex "kcalloc(sizeof" turned up 2 reversed args, fixed in commit d3d09e18203dba16a9dbdb2b4cc673d90748cdd1 ("EDAC: Fix kcalloc argument order") and also fixed in the networking commit a1b1add07fa794974573d93483d68e373edfe7bd ("gro: Fix kcalloc argument order"). I know that was the regex used, because on seeing the 1st of these changes, I wondered "how many other instances of this are there" and I happened to just use "calloc(sizeof" as a regex and it in turn found these additional reversed args instances in the perf code. In the kcalloc cases, the changes are cosmetic, since the numbers are simply multiplied. I had no desire to go data mining in userspace to see if the same thing held true there, however.

2013-02-06perf hists browser: Add support to display whole group data for raw columnsJiri Olsa
Currently we don't display group members' values for raw columns like 'Samples' and 'Period' when in group report mode. Uniting '__hpp__percent_fmt' and '__hpp__raw_fmt' function under new function __hpp__fmt. It's basically '__hpp__percent_fmt' code with new 'fmt_percent' bool parameter added saying whether raw number or percentage should be printed. This way raw columns print out all the group members when in group report mode, like: $ perf record -e '{cycles,cache-misses}' ls ... $ perf report --group --show-total-period --stdio ... # Overhead Period Command Shared Object Symbol # ................ ........................ ....... ................. ................................. # 23.63% 11.24% 3331335 317 ls [kernel.kallsyms] [k] __lock_acquire 12.72% 0.00% 1793100 0 ls [kernel.kallsyms] [k] native_sched_clock 9.72% 0.00% 1369920 0 ls libc-2.14.90.so [.] _nl_find_locale 0.03% 0.07% 4476 2 ls [kernel.kallsyms] [k] intel_pmu_enable_all 0.00% 11.73% 0 331 ls ld-2.14.90.so [.] _dl_cache_libcmp 0.00% 11.06% 0 312 ls [kernel.kallsyms] [k] vma_interval_tree_insert Signed-off-by: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Acked-by: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Corey Ashford <cjashfor@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung@kernel.org> Cc: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1359981185-16819-2-git-send-email-jolsa@redhat.com Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
2013-02-06perf stat: Add per processor socket count aggregationStephane Eranian
This patch adds per-processor socket count aggregation for system-wide mode measurements. This is a useful mode to detect imbalance between sockets. To enable this mode, use --aggr-socket in addition to -a. (system-wide). The output includes the socket number and the number of online processors on that socket. This is useful to gauge the amount of aggregation. # ./perf stat -I 1000 -a --aggr-socket -e cycles sleep 2 # time socket cpus counts events 1.000097680 S0 4 5,788,785 cycles 2.000379943 S0 4 27,361,546 cycles 2.001167808 S0 4 818,275 cycles Signed-off-by: Stephane Eranian <eranian@google.com> Cc: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Cc: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com> Cc: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/1360161962-9675-3-git-send-email-eranian@google.com [ committer note: Added missing man page entry based on above comments ] Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>
