Hi Pintu,

Could you run it with --vv?

Without it, you can not probe source-level probe nor trace local variable.

That doesn't work.
CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO option enables gcc to compile kernel with extra debuginfo.
Without that option, debuginfo is not generated with vmlinux.

Could you also ensure that you run perf by root user?

Thank you,
