Unfortunately this does not seem to fix my issue.

So for that patch, you say you fix metric expression for DRAM_BW_Use,
which is:

{
"BriefDescription": "Average external Memory Bandwidth Use for reads
and writes [GB / sec]",
"MetricExpr": "( 64 * ( uncore_imc@cas_count_read@ +
uncore_imc@cas_count_write@ ) / 1000000000 ) / duration_time",
"MetricGroup": "Memory_BW",
"MetricName": "DRAM_BW_Use"
},

But this metric expression does not include any alias events; rather I
think it is just cas_count_write + cas_count_read event count for PMU
uncore_imc / duration_time.

When I say alias, I mean - as an example, we have event:

{
"BriefDescription": "write requests to memory controller.
Derived from unc_m_cas_count.wr",
"Counter": "0,1,2,3",
"EventCode": "0x4",
"EventName": "LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE",
"PerPkg": "1",
"ScaleUnit": "64Bytes",
"UMask": "0xC",
"Unit": "iMC"
},

And then reference LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE in a metric expression:

"MetricExpr": "LLC_MISSES.MEM_WRITE / duration_time",

This is what seems to be broken for when the alias matches > 1 PMU.

Please check this.

Thanks,
John
