Subject[PATCH v4] perf stat: Show percore counts in per CPU output
Date
We have supported the event modifier "percore" which sums up the
event counts for all hardware threads in a core and show the counts
per core.

For example,

# perf stat -e cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/ -a -A -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

S0-D0-C0 395,072 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
S0-D0-C1 851,248 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
S0-D0-C2 954,226 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
S0-D0-C3 1,233,659 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/

This patch provides a new option "--percore-show-thread". It is
used with event modifier "percore" together to sum up the event counts
for all hardware threads in a core but show the counts per hardware
thread.

This is essentially a replacement for the any bit (which is gone in
Icelake). Per core counts are useful for some formulas, e.g. CoreIPC.
The original percore version was inconvenient to post process. This
variant matches the output of the any bit.

With this patch, for example,

# perf stat -e cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/ -a -A --percore-show-thread -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

CPU0 2,453,061 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU1 1,823,921 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU2 1,383,166 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU3 1,102,652 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU4 2,453,061 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU5 1,823,921 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU6 1,383,166 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU7 1,102,652 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/

We can see counts are duplicated in CPU pairs
(CPU0/CPU4, CPU1/CPU5, CPU2/CPU6, CPU3/CPU7).

The interval mode also works. For example,

# perf stat -e cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/ -a -A --percore-show-thread -I 1000
# time CPU counts unit events
1.000425421 CPU0 925,032 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU1 430,202 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU2 436,843 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU3 1,192,504 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU4 925,032 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU5 430,202 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU6 436,843 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
1.000425421 CPU7 1,192,504 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/

If we offline CPU5, the result is:

# perf stat -e cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/ -a -A --percore-show-thread -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

CPU0 2,752,148 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU1 1,009,312 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU2 2,784,072 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU3 2,427,922 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU4 2,752,148 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU6 2,784,072 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/
CPU7 2,427,922 cpu/event=cpu-cycles,percore/

v4:
---
Ravi Bangoria reports an issue in v3. Once we offline a CPU,
the output is not correct. The issue is we should use the cpu
idx in print_percore_thread rather than using the cpu value.

v3:
---
1. Fix the interval mode output error
2. Use cpu value (not cpu index) in config->aggr_get_id().
3. Refine the code according to Jiri's comments.

v2:
---
Add the explanation in change log. This is essentially a replacement
for the any bit. No code change.
