"perf report --show-total-period" will be your friend.

BTW, it seems you were using old version of perf (and kernel too, maybe).
I have no idea if your perf wouldn't support the option. :)

The "-l" option was meaningful only if you specified events more than the
actual number of counters in the PMU.

It's not possible now. You should run a number of instances of perf for
that purpose AFAIK.
