Subject[PATCH 5/6] perf trace/scripting: add 'record' and 'report' options
Date
Allow scripts to be recorded/executed by simply specifying the script
root name (the script name minus extension) along with 'record' or
'report' to 'perf trace'.

The script names shown by 'perf trace -l' can be directly used to run
the command-line contained within the corresponding '-record' and
'-report' versions of scripts in the scripts/*/bin directories.
For example, to record the trace data needed to run the
wakeup-latency.pl script, the user can easily find the name of the
corresponding script from the script list and invoke it using 'perf
trace record', without having to remember the details of how to do the
same thing using the lower-level perf trace command-line options:

root@tropicana:~# perf trace -l
List of available trace scripts:
workqueue-stats workqueue stats (ins/exe/create/destroy)
wakeup-latency system-wide min/max/avg wakeup latency
rw-by-file <comm> r/w activity for a program, by file
check-perf-trace useless but exhaustive test script
rw-by-pid system-wide r/w activity

root@tropicana:~# perf trace record wakeup-latency
^C[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.296 MB perf.data (~12931 samples) ]

To run the wakeup-latency.pl script using the captured data, change
'record' to 'report' in the command-line:

root@tropicana:~# perf trace report wakeup-latency

wakeup_latency stats:

total_wakeups: 65
avg_wakeup_latency (ns): 22417
min_wakeup_latency (ns): 3470
max_wakeup_latency (ns): 223311

perf trace Perl script stopped

If the script takes options, thay can be simply added to the end of
the 'report' invocation:

root@tropicana:~# perf trace record rw-by-file
^C[ perf record: Woken up 2 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.782 MB perf.data (~34171 samples) ]

root@tropicana:~# perf trace report rw-by-file perf

file read counts for perf:

fd # reads bytes_requested
------ ---------- -----------
122 1934 1980416
120 1 32
file write counts for perf:

fd # writes bytes_written
------ ---------- -----------
3 4006 280568
