SubjectRe: [PATCH] Provide additional sample information to Python scripts
Date
Hi Joseph,

Sorry for late review, this looks very useful.. But please send a
separate email for each patch and make it inlined (not attached) in the
next version.

But this makes the script not runnable anymore due to argument number
mismatch:

$ perf script -s perf-script.py
...
TypeError: sched__sched_wakeup() takes exactly 12 arguments (13 given)
Fatal Python error: problem in Python trace event handler
Aborted (core dumped)


So you need to change to pass callchain when generating the handler.

Also I think it's very useful to generate code to print callchain by
default if exists - something like below?

for node in callchain:
if 'sym' in node:
print "\t[%x] %s" % (node['ip'], node['sym']['name'])
else:
print "\t[%x]" % (node['ip'])

And I think this part should be a separate patch.

It seems like an unnecessary change.

It looks like the handler_call_die() is never returned. So we can get
rid of the 'else' (like in the last hunk) for simplicity.

Thanks,
