Hi Arnaldo,

The timestamp boundary information is saved in perf file header.

So if we want to look at them, we need to add '--header' in perf report.

For example,

root@skl:/tmp# perf report -D --header | grep 'time of'
# time of first sample : 248333.706656
# time of last sample : 248357.215328

Thanks
Jin Yao
