Thanks for the testing!

Hi Leo,

I think this is not true in piped mode because there is no auxtrace index.
In that mode, events are processed only in file order and cs_etm__process_auxtrace_event()
is called for each buffer.

You can reproduce this with something like this:

./perf record -o - ls > stdio.data
cat stdio.data | ./perf report -i -

There are some other Coresight features that don't work as expected in this mode, like
sorting timestamps between CPUs. The aux split patchset won't work either because random
access isn't possible. And the TRBE patch that I'm working on now won't work, because it
also requires the random access to lookup the flags on the AUX record to configure the
decoder for unformatted trace.


Thanks
James
