You can instead compress the same info as:

-------------------------------
With the timehist option 'perf report --timehist' displays the same
sample as (some fields removed/compressed to make it fit under 80 columns)

It allows you to see each schedule out point, where the process is when
it gets scheduled out and, with additional processing on the timehist
output, time between schedule-in events and time on the processor.

-----------------------------
changing the PID and addresses on the 'perf record -D' output to match the
shorter PID, etc, helps too.

will continue reviewing later, thanks
