Subject[PATCH 00/17] perf tools: Factor ordered samples queue
Date
hi,
this patchset factors session's ordered samples queue,
and allows to limit the size of this queue.

The report command queues events till any of following
conditions is reached:
- PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND event is processed
- end of the file is reached

Any of above conditions will force the queue to flush some
events while keeping all allocated memory for next events.

If PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND is missing the queue will
allocate memory for every single event in the perf.data.
This could lead to enormous memory consuption and speed
degradation of report command for huge perf.data files.

With the quue allocation limit of 100 MB, I've got around
15% speedup on reporting of ~10GB perf.data file.

current code:
Performance counter stats for './perf.old report --stdio -i perf-test.data' (3 runs):

621,685,704,665 cycles ( +- 0.52% )
873,397,467,969 instructions ( +- 0.00% )

286.133268732 seconds time elapsed ( +- 1.13% )

with patches:
Performance counter stats for './perf report --stdio -i perf-test.data' (3 runs):

603,933,987,185 cycles ( +- 0.45% )
869,139,445,070 instructions ( +- 0.00% )

245.337510637 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.49% )


The speed up seems to be mainly in less cycles spent in servicing
page faults:

current code:
4.44% 0.01% perf.old [kernel.kallsyms] [k] page_fault

with patches:
1.45% 0.00% perf [kernel.kallsyms] [k] page_fault

current code (faults event):
6,643,807 faults ( +- 0.36% )

with patches (faults event):
2,214,756 faults ( +- 3.03% )


Also now we have one of our big memory spender under control
and the ordered events queue code is put in separated object
with clear interface ready to be used by another command
like script.

Also reachable in here:
