Subject[RFCv2 0/8] perf tool: Add new event group management
Date
hi,
adding support for creating event groups based on the way they
are specified on the command line.

- added 'group=...' syntax to group events (patches 1-5).
I think this part is quite ready.

- added 'group:1=...' syntax to specify which event to sample (leader)
and use PERF_SAMPLE_READ and PERF_FORMAT_GROUP to read all siblings
on every leader's events (patches 6-8).
Currently it is only possible to display siblings values by
'perf report -D' PERF_SAMPLE_READ dump output containing only perf
internal IDs displayed.. so not very usefull. But I was hoping to
straighten up the data design/directions before I touch the gui.


Attached patches:
1/8 perf, tool: Add support to parse event group syntax
2/8 perf, tool: Enable grouping logic for parsed events
3/8 perf: Add PERF_EVENT_IOC_ID ioctl to return event ID
4/8 perf, tool: Use PERF_EVENT_IOC_ID perf ioctl to read event id
5/8 perf, tool: Separate 'mem:' event scanner bits
6/8 perf, tool: Add modifier support to group event syntax
7/8 perf, tool: Add support for parsing PERF_SAMPLE_READ
8/8 perf, tool: Enable sampling on specified event group leader

thanks for comments,
jirka
