Subject[PATCH 78/83] perf tools: Optimize sample parsing for ordered events
Date
From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org>

Currently when using ordered events we parse the sample twice (the
perf_evlist__parse_sample function). Once before we queue the sample for
sorting:

perf_session__process_event
perf_evlist__parse_sample(sample)
perf_session__queue_event(sample.time)

And then when we deliver the sorted sample:

ordered_events__deliver_event
perf_evlist__parse_sample
perf_session__deliver_event

We can skip the initial full sample parsing by using
perf_evlist__parse_sample_timestamp function, which got introduced
earlier. The new path looks like:

perf_session__process_event
perf_evlist__parse_sample_timestamp
perf_session__queue_event

ordered_events__deliver_event
perf_session__deliver_event
perf_evlist__parse_sample

It saves some instructions and is slightly faster:

Before:
Performance counter stats for './perf.old report --stdio' (5 runs):

64,396,007,225 cycles:u ( +- 0.97% )
105,882,112,735 instructions:u # 1.64 insn per cycle ( +- 0.00% )

21.618103465 seconds time elapsed ( +- 1.12% )

After:
Performance counter stats for './perf report --stdio' (5 runs):

60,567,807,182 cycles:u ( +- 0.40% )
104,853,333,514 instructions:u # 1.73 insn per cycle ( +- 0.00% )

20.168895243 seconds time elapsed ( +- 0.32% )
