Subject[RFCv2 00/48] perf tools: Add threads to record command
Date
hi,
sending *RFC* for threads support in perf record command.

In big picture this patchset adds perf record --threads
option that allows to create threads in following modes:

1) single thread mode (current)

$ perf record ...
$ perf record --threads=1 ...

- all maps are read/stored under process thread

2) mode with specific (X) number of threads

$ perf record --threads=X ...

- maps are spread equaly among threads

3) mode that creates thread for every monitored memory map

$ perf record --threads ...

- which in perf record is equal to number of CPUs, and
it pins each thread to its map's cpu:

4) TODO - NUMA aware threads/maps separation
...

The perf.data stays as a single file.

v2 changes:
- rebased to current Arnaldo's perf/core
(also based on few fixes from my perf/core, see the branch details below)

This patchset contains lot of preparation changes to make
threaded record possible:

- Namhyung's changes to create multiple data streams in
perf data file, which allows having each thread data
being stored in separate files and merged into single
perf data after

- Namhyung's changes to create track mmaps for auxiliary
events

- Namhyung's changes to search for threads/mmaps/comms
using the time. This is needed because we have now
multiple data streams which are processed separately,
but they all need access to complete auxiliary events
data (threads/mmaps/comms). That's also a reason why
the auxiliary events are stored into separate data
stream, which is processed before real data.

- the rest of the code that adds threads abstraction into
record command allows to create them and distribute maps
among them

- other preparational changes

The threaded monitoring currently can't monitor backward maps
and there are probably more limitations which I haven't spotted
yet.

So far I tested on laptop:
http://people.redhat.com/~jolsa/record_threads/test-4CPU.txt

and a one bigger server:
http://people.redhat.com/~jolsa/record_threads/test-208CPU.txt

I can see decrease in recorded LOST events, but both the benchmark
and the monitoring must be carefully configured wrt:
- number of events (frequency)
- size of the memory maps
- size of events (callchains)
- final perf.data size

It's also available in:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jolsa/perf.git
perf/record_threads

thoughts? ;-) thanks
