Subject[PATCH RFC V2 08/10] perf top: implement multithreading for perf_event__synthesize_threads
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

The proc files which is sorted with alphabetical order are evenly
assigned to several synthesize threads to be processed in parallel.

For perf top, the threads number hard code to online CPU number. The
following patch will introduce an option to set it.
For other perf tools, the thread number is 1. Because the process
function is not ready for multithreading, e.g.
process_synthesized_event.
This patch series only support event synthesize multithreading for perf
top. For other tools, it can be done separately later.

With multithread applied, the total processing time can get up to 1.56x
speedup on Knights Mill for perf top.

For specific single event processing, the processing time could increase
because of the lock contention. So proc_map_timeout may need to be
increased. Otherwise some proc maps will be truncated.
Based on my test, increasing the proc_map_timeout has small impact
on the total processing time. The total processing time still get 1.49x
speedup on Knights Mill after increasing the proc_map_timeout.
The patch itself doesn't increase the proc_map_timeout.

Doesn't need to implement multithreading for
perf_event__synthesize_thread_map. It doesn't have performance issue.
