Ok, I guess this wasn't actually tested with Python3 as itervalues() is Python2 only. Any scripts need to work with both Python2.6+ and Python3.

# perf script -i /tmp/perf.out -s page-reclaim.py -- -p
...

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "page-reclaim.py", line 305, in trace_end
i.display_proc(),
File "page-reclaim.py", line 268, in display_proc
print_proc_latency(sorted(self.stat.stats['latency'].itervalues(),
AttributeError: 'dict' object has no attribute 'itervalues'
Fatal Python error: problem in Python trace event handler

Use a try/except to handle this.

Thanks

Tony
