Subject[PATCH] perf_events: Enable idle state tracing for pseries (ppc64)
Hi,

Please find below a patch, which has perf_events added for pseries (ppc64)
platform in order to emit the trace required for perf timechart.
It essentially enables perf timechart for pseries platfrom to analyse
power savings events like cpuidle states.

Steps to enable and disable the trace;
1) Mount debugfs;
mount -t debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug
2) Then, enable the event using;
echo 1 > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/power/cpu_idle/enable
3) The output of the trace can be seen in /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
4) To disable the trace use;
echo 0 > sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/power/cpu_idle/enable

Trace .svg o/p can be viewed for pseries (ppc64) systems showing various
cpu-idle states as a part of perf timechart tool.
References: http://blog.fenrus.org/?p=5

Issue command 'perf timechart record' to enable tracing.
This generates the trace and records in perf.data file by default.
One can generate output.svg file by issuing 'perf timechart'.

Sample o/p from the trace file:
===============================

State 1 -> Snooze
State 2 -> Cede

<idle>-0 [000] 292.514205: cpu_idle: state=4294967295 cpu_id=0

This patch applies on 2.6.39 and tested on a IBM POWER7 machine.
