SubjectRe: [patch 05/15] LTTng instrumentation - scheduler (repost)
There were 2 rejects when I ported the patch to linux-next. Sorry. Here
is a repost.


Instrument the scheduler activity (sched_switch, migration, wakeups, wait for a
task, signal delivery) and process/thread creation/destruction (fork, exit,
kthread stop). Actually, kthread creation is not instrumented in this patch
because it is architecture dependent. It allows to connect tracers such as
ftrace which detects scheduling latencies, good/bad scheduler decisions. Tools
like LTTng can export this scheduler information along with instrumentation of
the rest of the kernel activity to perform post-mortem analysis on the scheduler
activity.

About the performance impact of tracepoints (which is comparable to markers),
even without immediate values optimizations, tests done by Hideo Aoki on ia64
show no regression. His test case was using hackbench on a kernel where
scheduler instrumentation (about 5 events in code scheduler code) was added.
See the "Tracepoints" patch header for performance result detail.
