NAME
----
perf-annotate - Read perf.data (created by perf record) and display annotated code

SYNOPSIS
--------
[verse]
'perf annotate' [-i <file> | --input=file] [symbol_name]

DESCRIPTION
-----------
This command reads the input file and displays an annotated version of the
code. If the object file has debug symbols then the source code will be
displayed alongside assembly code.

If there is no debug info in the object, then annotated assembly is displayed.

OPTIONS
-------
-i::
--input=::
        Input file name. (default: perf.data)

-d::
--dsos=<dso[,dso...]>::
        Only consider symbols in these dsos.
-s::
--symbol=<symbol>::
        Symbol to annotate.

-f::
--force::
        Don't complain, do it.

-v::
--verbose::
        Be more verbose. (Show symbol address, etc)

-D::
--dump-raw-trace::
        Dump raw trace in ASCII.

-k::
--vmlinux=<file>::
        vmlinux pathname.

-m::
--modules::
        Load module symbols. WARNING: use only with -k and LIVE kernel.

-l::
--print-line::
        Print matching source lines (may be slow).

-P::
--full-paths::
        Don't shorten the displayed pathnames.

--stdio:: Use the stdio interface.

--tui:: Use the TUI interface Use of --tui requires a tty, if one is not
	present, as when piping to other commands, the stdio interface is
	used. This interfaces starts by centering on the line with more
	samples, TAB/UNTAB cycles through the lines with more samples.

-c::
--cpu:: Only report samples for the list of CPUs provided. Multiple CPUs can
	be provided as a comma-separated list with no space: 0,1. Ranges of
	CPUs are specified with -: 0-2. Default is to report samples on all
	CPUs.

--asm-raw::
	Show raw instruction encoding of assembly instructions. They
	are displayed by default, disable with --no-asm-raw.

--source::
	Interleave source code with assembly code. Enabled by default,
	disable with --no-source.

--symfs=<directory>::
        Look for files with symbols relative to this directory.

-M::
--disassembler-style=:: Set disassembler style for objdump.
