Subject[RFC perf,bpf 0/5] reveal invisible bpf programs
Date
This is to follow up Alexei's early effort to show bpf programs

https://www.spinics.net/lists/netdev/msg524232.html

In this version, PERF_RECORD_BPF_EVENT is introduced to send real time BPF
load/unload events to user space. In user space, perf-record is modified
to listen to these events (through a dedicated ring buffer) and generate
detailed information about the program (struct bpf_prog_info_event). Then,
perf-report translates these events into proper symbols.

With this set, perf-report will show bpf program as:

18.49% 0.16% test [kernel.vmlinux] [k] ksys_write
18.01% 0.47% test [kernel.vmlinux] [k] vfs_write
17.02% 0.40% test bpf_prog [k] bpf_prog_F
16.97% 0.10% test [kernel.vmlinux] [k] __vfs_write
16.86% 0.12% test [kernel.vmlinux] [k] comm_write
16.67% 0.39% test [kernel.vmlinux] [k] bpf_probe_read

Note that, the program name is still work in progress, it will be cleaner
with function types in BTF.

Please share your comments on this.

Thanks,
Song
