Subject[PATCH V2 0/3] perf tool: perf diff sort changes
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@intel.com>

Current perf diff has some issues. E.g. the default sort key is
symbol, but it doesn't work well. It sorts as address. Furthermore,
the old perf diff can only work on perf.data from the same binary.

This patch set fixes the symbol issue and extends it to compare the
perf.data from different binaries and different kernels. It's useful
for debugging the regression issue.
Current perf diff can do address compare, the patch set also keep
this feature. A new sort key "addr" is introduced. It can let the user
sort differential profile by the address. It should be useful for
debugging the scaling issue, if the user think function level diff is
too high granularity.

Here is an example.

v1_1_6perf.data is perf record result of version one tchain on 1.6 kernel.
v2_1_8perf.data is perf record result of version two tchain on 1.8 kernel.
They are from different binaries.

v1_1_8_1perf.data and v1_1_8_2perf.data are perf record result of version
one tchain on 1.8 kernel. I run perf record twice.
They are from same binary.

Old perf diff with default sort key "dso,symbol" for different binary
./perf diff -s dso,symbol v1_1_6perf.data v2_1_8perf.data

Changes from V1:
- mmap2 as default of tool's definition
- Using se_collapse to match symbol name.
- Sort key "addr" is introduced to compare address from same binary.


Kan Liang (3):
perf tool: Fix perf diff symble sort issue
perf tool:perf diff support for different binaries
perf tool: Add sort key addr for perf diff
