+3. User space creating a trigger
+--------------------------------
+
+Writing into /sys/kernel/tracing/trace_marker writes into the ftrace
+ring buffer. This can also act like an event, by writing into the trigger
+file located in /sys/kernel/tracing/events/ftrace/print/
+
+Modifying cyclictest to write into the trace_marker file before it sleeps
+and after it wakes up, something like this:
+
+static void traceputs(char *str)
+{
+ /* tracemark_fd is the trace_marker file descriptor */
+ if (tracemark_fd < 0)
+ return;
+ /* write the tracemark message */
+ write(tracemark_fd, str, strlen(str));
+}
+
+And later add something like:
+
+ traceputs("start");
+ clock_nanosleep(...);
+ traceputs("end");
+
+We can make a histogram from this:
+
+ # cd /sys/kernel/tracing
+ # echo 'latency u64 lat' > synthetic_events
+ # echo 'hist:keys=common_pid:ts0=common_timestamp.usecs if buf == "start"' > events/ftrace/print/trigger
+ # echo 'hist:keys=common_pid:lat=common_timestamp.usecs-$ts0:onmatch(ftrace.print).latency($lat) if buf == "end"' >> events/ftrace/print/trigger
+ # echo 'hist:keys=lat,common_pid:sort=lat' > events/synthetic/latency/trigger
+
+The above created a synthetic event called "latency" and two histograms
+against the trace_marker, one gets triggered when "start" is written into the
+trace_marker file and the other when "end" is written. If the pids match, then
+it will call the "latency" synthetic event with the calculated latency as its
+parameter. Finally, a histogram is added to the latency synthetic event to
+record the calculated latency along with the pid.
+
+Now running cyclictest with:
+
+ # ./cyclictest -p80 -d0 -i250 -n -a -t --tracemark -b 1000
+
+ -p80 : run threads at priority 80
+ -d0 : have all threads run at the same interval
+ -i250 : start the interval at 250 microseconds (all threads will do this)
+ -n : sleep with nanosleep
+ -a : affine all threads to a separate CPU
+ -t : one thread per available CPU
+ --tracemark : enable trace mark writing
+ -b 1000 : stop if any latency is greater than 1000 microseconds
+
+Note, the -b 1000 is used just to make --tracemark available.
+
+Then we can see the histogram created by this with:
+
+ # cat events/synthetic/latency/hist
+# event histogram
+#
+# trigger info: hist:keys=lat,common_pid:vals=hitcount:sort=lat:size=2048 [active]

+
+Note, the writes are around the sleep, so ideally they will all be of 250
+microseconds. If you are wondering how there are several that are under
+250 microseconds, that is because the way cyclictest works, is if one
+iteration comes in late, the next one will set the timer to wake up less that
+250. That is, if an iteration came in 50 microseconds late, the next wake up
+will be at 200 microseconds.
+
+But this could easily be done in userspace. To make this even more
+interesting, we can mix the histogram between events that happened in the
+kernel with trace_marker.
+
+ # cd /sys/kernel/tracing
+ # echo 'latency u64 lat' > synthetic_events
+ # echo 'hist:keys=pid:ts0=common_timestamp.usecs' > events/sched/sched_waking/trigger
+ # echo '!hist:keys=common_pid:vals=hitcount:lat=common_timestamp.usecs-$ts0:sort=hitcount:size=2048:clock=global:onmatch(sched.sched_switch).latency($lat) if buf == "end"' > events/ftrace/print/trigger
+ # echo 'hist:keys=common_pid:lat=common_timestamp.usecs-$ts0:onmatch(sched.sched_waking).latency($lat) if buf == "end"' > events/ftrace/print/trigger
+ # echo 'hist:keys=lat,common_pid:sort=lat' > events/synthetic/latency/trigger
+
+The difference this time is that instead of using the trace_marker to start
+the latency, the sched_waking event is used, matching the common_pid for the
+trace_marker write with the pid that is being woken by sched_waking.
+
+After running cyclictest again with the same parameters, we now have:
+
+ # cat events/synthetic/latency/hist
+# event histogram
+#
+# trigger info: hist:keys=lat,common_pid:vals=hitcount:sort=lat:size=2048 [active]

+the time that cyclictest was woken to the time it made it into user space.
