Ok, as root try 'perf top', here I get, with this patch:

[root@sandy ~]# perf top --stdio
Warning:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument).
/bin/dmesg may provide additional information.
No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured?
[root@sandy ~]#

Skipping this one, will look again later.
