2013-06-20ARM: bL_switcher/trace: Add trace trigger for trace bootstrappingDave Martin
When tracing switching, an external tracer needs a way to bootstrap its knowledge of the logical<->physical CPU mapping. This patch adds a sysfs attribute trace_trigger. A write to this attribute will generate a power:cpu_migrate_current event for each online CPU, indicating the current physical CPU for each logical CPU. Activating or deactivating the switcher also generates these events, so that the tracer knows about the resulting remapping of affected CPUs. Signed-off-by: Dave Martin <dave.martin@linaro.org>
2013-06-20ARM: bL_switcher: Basic trace events supportDave Martin
This patch adds simple trace events to the b.L switcher code to allow tracing of CPU migration events. To make use of the trace events, you will need: CONFIG_FTRACE=y CONFIG_ENABLE_DEFAULT_TRACERS=y The following events are added: * power:cpu_migrate_begin * power:cpu_migrate_finish each with the following data: u64 timestamp; u32 cpu_hwid; power:cpu_migrate_begin occurs immediately before the switcher-specific migration operations start. power:cpu_migrate_finish occurs immediately when migration is completed. The cpu_hwid field contains the ID fields of the MPIDR. * For power:cpu_migrate_begin, cpu_hwid is the ID of the outbound physical CPU (equivalent to (from_phys_cpu,from_phys_cluster)). * For power:cpu_migrate_finish, cpu_hwid is the ID of the inbound physical CPU (equivalent to (to_phys_cpu,to_phys_cluster)). By design, the cpu_hwid field is masked in the same way as the device tree cpu node reg property, allowing direct correlation to the DT description of the hardware. The timestamp is added in order to minimise timing noise. An accurate system-wide clock should be used for generating this (hopefully getnstimeofday is appropriate, but it could be changed). It could be any monotonic shared clock, since the aim is to allow accurate deltas to be computed. We don't necessarily care about accurate synchronisation with wall clock time. In practice, each switch takes place on a single logical CPU, and the trace infrastructure should guarantee that events are well-ordered with respect to a single logical CPU.

2013-05-05Merge branch 'timers-nohz-for-linus' of ↵Linus Torvalds
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip Pull 'full dynticks' support from Ingo Molnar: "This tree from Frederic Weisbecker adds a new, (exciting! :-) core kernel feature to the timer and scheduler subsystems: 'full dynticks', or CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y. This feature extends the nohz variable-size timer tick feature from idle to busy CPUs (running at most one task) as well, potentially reducing the number of timer interrupts significantly. This feature got motivated by real-time folks and the -rt tree, but the general utility and motivation of full-dynticks runs wider than that: - HPC workloads get faster: CPUs running a single task should be able to utilize a maximum amount of CPU power. A periodic timer tick at HZ=1000 can cause a constant overhead of up to 1.0%. This feature removes that overhead - and speeds up the system by 0.5%-1.0% on typical distro configs even on modern systems. - Real-time workload latency reduction: CPUs running critical tasks should experience as little jitter as possible. The last remaining source of kernel-related jitter was the periodic timer tick. - A single task executing on a CPU is a pretty common situation, especially with an increasing number of cores/CPUs, so this feature helps desktop and mobile workloads as well. The cost of the feature is mainly related to increased timer reprogramming overhead when a CPU switches its tick period, and thus slightly longer to-idle and from-idle latency. Configuration-wise a third mode of operation is added to the existing two NOHZ kconfig modes: - CONFIG_HZ_PERIODIC: [formerly !CONFIG_NO_HZ], now explicitly named as a config option. This is the traditional Linux periodic tick design: there's a HZ tick going on all the time, regardless of whether a CPU is idle or not. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_IDLE: [formerly CONFIG_NO_HZ=y], this turns off the periodic tick when a CPU enters idle mode. - CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL: this new mode, in addition to turning off the tick when a CPU is idle, also slows the tick down to 1 Hz (one timer interrupt per second) when only a single task is running on a CPU. The .config behavior is compatible: existing !CONFIG_NO_HZ and CONFIG_NO_HZ=y settings get translated to the new values, without the user having to configure anything. CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is turned off by default. This feature is based on a lot of infrastructure work that has been steadily going upstream in the last 2-3 cycles: related RCU support and non-periodic cputime support in particular is upstream already. This tree adds the final pieces and activates the feature. The pull request is marked RFC because: - it's marked 64-bit only at the moment - the 32-bit support patch is small but did not get ready in time. - it has a number of fresh commits that came in after the merge window. The overwhelming majority of commits are from before the merge window, but still some aspects of the tree are fresh and so I marked it RFC. - it's a pretty wide-reaching feature with lots of effects - and while the components have been in testing for some time, the full combination is still not very widely used. That it's default-off should reduce its regression abilities and obviously there are no known regressions with CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y enabled either. - the feature is not completely idempotent: there is no 100% equivalent replacement for a periodic scheduler/timer tick. In particular there's ongoing work to map out and reduce its effects on scheduler load-balancing and statistics. This should not impact correctness though, there are no known regressions related to this feature at this point. - it's a pretty ambitious feature that with time will likely be enabled by most Linux distros, and we'd like you to make input on its design/implementation, if you dislike some aspect we missed. Without flaming us to crisp! :-) Future plans: - there's ongoing work to reduce 1Hz to 0Hz, to essentially shut off the periodic tick altogether when there's a single busy task on a CPU. We'd first like 1 Hz to be exposed more widely before we go for the 0 Hz target though. - once we reach 0 Hz we can remove the periodic tick assumption from nr_running>=2 as well, by essentially interrupting busy tasks only as frequently as the sched_latency constraints require us to do - once every 4-40 msecs, depending on nr_running. I am personally leaning towards biting the bullet and doing this in v3.10, like the -rt tree this effort has been going on for too long - but the final word is up to you as usual.

2013-05-03ext4: fix fio regressionYan, Zheng
We (Linux Kernel Performance project) found a regression introduced by commit: f7fec032aa ext4: track all extent status in extent status tree The commit causes about 20% performance decrease in fio random write test. Profiler shows that rb_next() uses a lot of CPU time. The call stack is: rb_next ext4_es_find_delayed_extent ext4_map_blocks _ext4_get_block ext4_get_block_write __blockdev_direct_IO ext4_direct_IO generic_file_direct_write __generic_file_aio_write ext4_file_write aio_rw_vect_retry aio_run_iocb do_io_submit sys_io_submit system_call_fastpath io_submit td_io_getevents io_u_queued_complete thread_main main __libc_start_main The cause is that ext4_es_find_delayed_extent() doesn't have an upper bound, it keeps searching until a delayed extent is found. When there are a lots of non-delayed entries in the extent state tree, ext4_es_find_delayed_extent() may uses a lot of CPU time.

The typical usage is to spot a specific device and inode (for example /lib/libc.so) to see the eviction cycles, and find out if frequently used code is rather spread across many pages (bad) or coallesced (good).

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace Pull tracing updates from Steven Rostedt: "Along with the usual minor fixes and clean ups there are a few major changes with this pull request. 1) Multiple buffers for the ftrace facility This feature has been requested by many people over the last few years. I even heard that Google was about to implement it themselves. I finally had time and cleaned up the code such that you can now create multiple instances of the ftrace buffer and have different events go to different buffers. This way, a low frequency event will not be lost in the noise of a high frequency event. Note, currently only events can go to different buffers, the tracers (ie function, function_graph and the latency tracers) still can only be written to the main buffer. 2) The function tracer triggers have now been extended. The function tracer had two triggers. One to enable tracing when a function is hit, and one to disable tracing. Now you can record a stack trace on a single (or many) function(s), take a snapshot of the buffer (copy it to the snapshot buffer), and you can enable or disable an event to be traced when a function is hit. 3) A perf clock has been added. A "perf" clock can be chosen to be used when tracing. This will cause ftrace to use the same clock as perf uses, and hopefully this will make it easier to interleave the perf and ftrace data for analysis." * tag 'trace-3.10' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/linux-trace: (82 commits) tracepoints: Prevent null probe from being added tracing: Compare to 1 instead of zero for is_signed_type() tracing: Remove obsolete macro guard _TRACE_PROFILE_INIT ftrace: Get rid of ftrace_profile_bits tracing: Check return value of tracing_init_dentry() tracing: Get rid of unneeded key calculation in ftrace_hash_move() tracing: Reset ftrace_graph_filter_enabled if count is zero tracing: Fix off-by-one on allocating stat->pages kernel: tracing: Use strlcpy instead of strncpy tracing: Update debugfs README file tracing: Fix ftrace_dump() tracing: Rename trace_event_mutex to trace_event_sem tracing: Fix comment about prefix in arch_syscall_match_sym_name() tracing: Convert trace_destroy_fields() to static tracing: Move find_event_field() into trace_events.c tracing: Use TRACE_MAX_PRINT instead of constant tracing: Use pr_warn_once instead of open coded implementation ring-buffer: Add ring buffer startup selftest tracing: Bring Documentation/trace/ftrace.txt up to date tracing: Add "perf" trace_clock ...

2013-04-12kthread: Prevent unpark race which puts threads on the wrong cpuThomas Gleixner
The smpboot threads rely on the park/unpark mechanism which binds per cpu threads on a particular core. Though the functionality is racy: CPU0 CPU1 CPU2 unpark(T) wake_up_process(T) clear(SHOULD_PARK) T runs leave parkme() due to !SHOULD_PARK bind_to(CPU2) BUG_ON(wrong CPU) We cannot let the tasks move themself to the target CPU as one of those tasks is actually the migration thread itself, which requires that it starts running on the target cpu right away. The solution to this problem is to prevent wakeups in park mode which are not from unpark(). That way we can guarantee that the association of the task to the target cpu is working correctly. Add a new task state (TASK_PARKED) which prevents other wakeups and use this state explicitly for the unpark wakeup. Peter noticed: Also, since the task state is visible to userspace and all the parked tasks are still in the PID space, its a good hint in ps and friends that these tasks aren't really there for the moment. The migration thread has another related issue. CPU0 CPU1 Bring up CPU2 create_thread(T) park(T) wait_for_completion() parkme() complete() sched_set_stop_task() schedule(TASK_PARKED) The sched_set_stop_task() call is issued while the task is on the runqueue of CPU1 and that confuses the hell out of the stop_task class on that cpu. So we need the same synchronizaion before sched_set_stop_task().

It's only three patches (the first one was committed to workqueue tree) but the merge strategy is a bit involved due to the dependencies. * Because the conversion needs features from wq/for-3.10, block/for-3.10/core is based on rc3, and wq/for-3.10 has conflicts with rc3, I pulled mainline (rc5) into wq/for-3.10 to prevent those workqueue conflicts from flaring up in block tree. * Resolving the issue that Jan and Dave raised about debugging requires arch-wide changes. The patchset is being worked on[2] but it'll have to go through -mm after these changes show up in -next, and not included in this pull request. The three commits are located in the following git branch. git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git writeback-workqueue Pulling it into block/for-3.10/core produces a conflict in drivers/md/raid5.c between the following two commits. e3620a3ad5 ("MD RAID5: Avoid accessing gendisk or queue structs when not available") 2f6db2a707 ("raid5: use bio_reset()") The conflict is trivial - one removes an "if ()" conditional while the other removes "rbi->bi_next = NULL" right above it. We just need to remove both. The merged branch is available at git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git block-test-merge so that you can use it for verification. The test merge commit has proper merge description.

2013-04-01writeback: replace custom worker pool implementation with unbound workqueueTejun Heo
Writeback implements its own worker pool - each bdi can be associated with a worker thread which is created and destroyed dynamically. The worker thread for the default bdi is always present and serves as the "forker" thread which forks off worker threads for other bdis. there's no reason for writeback to implement its own worker pool when using unbound workqueue instead is much simpler and more efficient. This patch replaces custom worker pool implementation in writeback with an unbound workqueue. The conversion isn't too complicated but the followings are worth mentioning. * bdi_writeback->last_active, task and wakeup_timer are removed. delayed_work ->dwork is added instead. Explicit timer handling is no longer necessary. Everything works by either queueing / modding / flushing / canceling the delayed_work item. * bdi_writeback_thread() becomes bdi_writeback_workfn() which runs off bdi_writeback->dwork. On each execution, it processes bdi->work_list and reschedules itself if there are more things to do. The function also handles low-mem condition, which used to be handled by the forker thread. If the function is running off a rescuer thread, it only writes out limited number of pages so that the rescuer can serve other bdis too. This preserves the flusher creation failure behavior of the forker thread. * INIT_LIST_HEAD(&bdi->bdi_list) is used to tell bdi_writeback_workfn() about on-going bdi unregistration so that it always drains work_list even if it's running off the rescuer. Note that the original code was broken in this regard. Under memory pressure, a bdi could finish unregistration with non-empty work_list. * The default bdi is no longer special. It now is treated the same as any other bdi and bdi_cap_flush_forker() is removed. * BDI_pending is no longer used. Removed. * Some tracepoints become non-applicable. The following TPs are removed - writeback_nothread, writeback_wake_thread, writeback_wake_forker_thread, writeback_thread_start, writeback_thread_stop. Everything, including devices coming and going away and rescuer operation under simulated memory pressure, seems to work fine in my test setup.

2013-03-15tracing: Add a way to soft disable trace eventsSteven Rostedt (Red Hat)
In order to let triggers enable or disable events, we need a 'soft' method for doing so. For example, if a function probe is added that lets a user enable or disable events when a function is called, that change must be done without taking locks or a mutex, and definitely it can't sleep. But the full enabling of a tracepoint is expensive. By adding a 'SOFT_DISABLE' flag, and converting the flags to be updated without the protection of a mutex (using set/clear_bit()), this soft disable flag can be used to allow critical sections to enable or disable events from being traced (after the event has been placed into "SOFT_MODE"). Some caveats though: The comm recorder (to map pids with a comm) can not be soft disabled (yet). If you disable an event with with a "soft" disable and wait a while before reading the trace, the comm cache may be replaced and you'll get a bunch of <...> for comms in the trace. Reading the "enable" file for an event that is disabled will now give you "0*" where the '*' denotes that the tracepoint is still active but the event itself is "disabled".
