I've been working on trace-cmd this month and came up with a new
"profile" command. I don't have cma_alloc but doing something like this
with kmalloc.


# trace-cmd profile -S -p function_graph -l __kmalloc -l '__kmalloc:stacktrace' --stderr workload 2>profile.out

and this gives me in profile.out, something like this:

If you want better names, I would add "-e sched_switch", as that will
record the comms of the tasks and you don't end up with a bunch of
"<...>".

Is this something you are looking for. The profile command does not
save to disk, thus it does the analysis live, and you don't need to
worry about running out of disk space. Although, since it is live, it
may tend to drop more events (see the "overrun values").

You can get trace-cmd from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rostedt/trace-cmd.git

You'll need the latest from the master branch, as even 2.5 doesn't have
the --stderr yet.

Make sure to do a make install and make install_doc, then you can do:

man trace-cmd-record
man trace-cmd-profile

to read about all the options.
