SubjectRe: perf probe + uprobes missing events
Hi Arnaldo,

This seems like a perf (perf's ringbuffer?) issue.

Actually, we can not enable perf and ftrace on same uprobe event yet, but the hit counter (uprobe_profile) works.

1) Setup the event.

$ sudo ./perf probe -x ./perf expr__parse expr:string
Added new event:
probe_perf:expr__parse (on expr__parse in /home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/tools/perf/perf with expr:string)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe_perf:expr__parse -aR sleep 1

$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile
/home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/tools/perf/perf expr__parse 0

2) run the test command

$ sudo ./perf trace -e probe_perf:expr_* perf test -F expr
7: Simple expression parser : Ok
0.000 perf/9789 probe_perf:expr__parse(__probe_ip: 94836726971904, expr_string: "1+1")

$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile
/home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/tools/perf/perf expr__parse 12

OK, this shows the perf trace command only shows 1 event, but uprobe_event itself hits 12 times.

3) run the test command again

$ sudo ./perf trace -e probe_perf:expr_* perf test -F expr
7: Simple expression parser : Ok
0.000 perf/9847 probe_perf:expr__parse(__probe_ip: 94778335464960, expr_string: "1+1")
0.014 perf/9847 probe_perf:expr__parse(__probe_ip: 94778335464960, expr_string: "FOO+BAR")
0.018 perf/9847 probe_perf:expr__parse(__probe_ip: 94778335464960, expr_string: "(BAR/2)%2")
$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile
/home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/tools/perf/perf expr__parse 24

Again, the perf trace shows only 3 events, but uprobe event hits +12 times

4) run the test command with ftrace.

$ echo 1 | sudo tee /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/probe_perf/enable
1
$ ./perf test -F expr
7: Simple expression parser : Ok
$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/uprobe_profile
/home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux/tools/perf/perf expr__parse 36

Hit +12 times and the ftrace shows all events correctly.

$ sudo cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace

perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936712: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="1-1 | 1"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936716: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="1-1 & 1"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936719: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="min(1,2) + 1"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936723: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="max(1,2) + 1"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936726: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="1+1 if 3*4 else 0"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936731: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="FOO/0"
perf-9883 [003] d... 9287.936734: expr__parse: (0x55ea35ce9e00) expr_string="BAR/"

It seems that the perf ring buffer returns only early events
(since expr_string="1+1" is always shown), so I guess there is
a timing issue when the ring buffer is read.

Can we delay the read timing?

Thank you,
