From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

This patchset introduces a new kernel module for practical monitoring of
data accesses, namely DAMON.

The patches are organized in the following sequence.  The first four
patches implements the core logic of DAMON one by one.  After that, the
second patch allow users to use DAMON by implementing a debugfs based
low level interface.  To provide a minimal reference to the low level
interfaces and for more convenient test of the DAMON itself, the third
patch implements an user space tool for the DAMON.  The fourth patch
adds a document for administrators of DAMON, and finally the fifth patch
provides DAMON's unit tests, which is using the kunit framework.

The patches are based on the v5.4 plus the back-ported kunit, which
retrieved from v5.5-rc1.  You can also clone the complete git tree by:

----

DAMON is a kernel module that allows users to monitor the actual memory
access pattern of specific user-space processes.  It aims to be 1)
accurate enough to be useful for performance-centric domains, and 2)
sufficiently light-weight so that it can be applied online.

For the goals, DAMON utilizes its two core mechanisms, called
region-based sampling and adaptive regions adjustment.  The region-based
sampling allows users to make their own trade-off between the quality
and the overhead of the monitoring and set the upperbound of the
monitoring overhead.  Further, the adaptive regions adjustment mechanism
makes DAMON to maximize the quality and minimize the overhead with its
best efforts while preserving the users configured trade-off.

Please note that the term 'memory' in this document means 'main memory'.
It also assumes that it would usually utilizes the middle level speed
memory devices such as DRAMs or NVRAMs.  CPU caches or storage devices
are not our concern, as those are too fast or too slow to be in DAMON's
scope.


Background
==========

For performance-centric analysis and optimizations of memory management
schemes (either that of kernel space or user space), the actual data
access pattern of the workloads is highly useful.  The information need
to be only reasonable rather than strictly correct, because some level
of incorrectness can be handled in many performance-centric domains.  It
also need to be taken within reasonably short time with only
light-weight overhead.

Manually extracting such data is not easy and time consuming if the
target workload is huge and complex, even for the developers of the
programs.  There are a range of tools and techniques developed for
general memory access investigations, and some of those could be
partially used for this purpose.  However, most of those are not
practical or unscalable, mainly because those are designed with no
consideration about the trade-off between the accuracy of the output and
the overhead.

The memory access instrumentation techniques which is applied to many
tools such as Intel PIN is essential for correctness required cases such
as invalid memory access bug detections.  However, those usually incur
high overhead which is unacceptable for many of the performance-centric
domains.  Periodic access checks based on H/W or S/W access counting
features (e.g., the Accessed bits of PTEs or the PG_Idle flags of pages)
can dramatically decrease the overhead by forgiving some of the quality,
compared to the instrumentation based techniques.  The reduced quality
is still reasonable for many of the domains, but the overhead can
arbitrarily increase as the size of the target workload grows.
Miniature-like static region based sampling can set the upperbound of
the overhead, but it will now decrease the quality of the output as the
size of the workload grows.


Related Works
=============

There are a number of researches[1,2,3,4,5,6] optimizing memory
management mechanisms based on the actual memory access patterns that
shows impressive results.  However, most of those has no deep
consideration about the monitoring of the accesses itself.  Some of
those focused on the overhead of the monitoring, but does not consider
the accuracy scalability[6] or has additional dependencies[7].  Indeed,
one recent research[5] about the proactive reclamation has also
proposed[8] to the kernel community but the monitoring overhead was
considered a main problem.

Expected Use-cases
==================

A straightforward usecase of DAMON would be the program behavior
analysis.  With the DAMON output, users can confirm whether the program
is running as intended or not.  This will be useful for debuggings and
tests of design points.

The monitored results can also be useful for counting the dynamic
working set size of workloads.  For the administration of memory
overcommitted systems or selection of the environments (e.g., containers
providing different amount of memory) for your workloads, this will be
useful.

If you are a programmer, you can optimize your program by managing the
memory based on the actual data access pattern.  For example, you can
identify the dynamic hotness of your data using DAMON and call
``mlock()`` to keep your hot data in DRAM, or call ``madvise()`` with
``MADV_PAGEOUT`` to proactively reclaim cold data.  Even though your
program is guaranteed to not encounter memory pressure, you can still
improve the performance by applying the DAMON outputs for call of
``MADV_HUGEPAGE`` and ``MADV_NOHUGEPAGE``.  More creative optimizations
would be possible.  Our evaluations of DAMON includes a straightforward
optimization using the ``mlock()``.  Please refer to the below
Evaluation section for more detail.

As DAMON incurs very low overhead, such optimizations can be applied not
only offline, but also online.  Also, there is no reason to limit such
optimizations to the user space.  Several parts of the kernel's memory
management mechanisms could be also optimized using DAMON. The
reclamation, the THP (de)promotion decisions, and the compaction would
be such a candidates.  Nevertheless, current version of DAMON is not
highly optimized for the online/in-kernel uses.


A Future Plan: Data Access Based Optimizations Support
------------------------------------------------------

As described in the above section, DAMON could be helpful for actual
access based memory management optimizations.  Nevertheless, users who
want to do such optimizations should run DAMON, read the traced data
(either online or offline), analyze it, plan a new memory management
scheme, and apply the new scheme by themselves.  It must be easier than
the past, but could still require some level of efforts.  In its next
development stage, DAMON will reduce some of such efforts by allowing
users to specify some access based memory management rules for their
specific processes.

Because this is just a plan, the specific interface is not fixed yet,
but for example, users will be allowed to write their desired memory
management rules to a special file in a DAMON specific format.  The
rules will be something like 'if a memory region of size in a range is
keeping a range of hotness for more than a duration, apply specific
memory management rule using madvise() or mlock() to the region'.  For
example, we can imagine rules like below:

    $ cat <debugfs>/damon/rules
    # format is: <min/max size> <min/max frequency> <duration> <action>
    # Below rules assume the frequency score is in [0,20].

    # if a region of a size keeps a very high access frequency for more
    # than 100ms, lock the region in the main memory (call mlock()).
    # But, if the region is larger than 500 MiB, skip it.  The exception
    # might be helpful if the system has only, say, 600 MiB of DRAM, a
    # region of size larger than 600 MiB cannot be locked in the DRAM at
    # all.
    na 500M 15 20 100ms mlock

    # if a region keeps a high access frequency for more than 100ms, put
    # the region in the head of the LRU list (call madvise() with
    # MADV_WILLNEED).
    na na 12 15 100ms madv_willneed

    # if a region keeps a low access frequency for more than 100ms, put
    # the region in the tail of the LRU list (call madvise() with
    # MADV_COLD).
    na na 3  5  100ms madv_cold

    # if a region keeps a very low access frequency for more than 100ms,
    # swap out the region immediately (call madvise() with
    # MADV_PAGEOUT).
    na na 0  3  100ms madv_pageout

    # if a region of size bigger than 2MB keeps a very high access
    # frequency for more than 100ms, let the region to use huge pages
    # (call madvise() with MADV_HUGEPAGE).
    2M na 15 20 100ms madv_hugepage

    # If a regions of size bigger than > 2MB keeps no high access
    # frequency for more than 100ms, avoid the region from using huge
    # pages (call madvise() with MADV_NOHUGEPAGE).
    2M na 0 15 100ms madv_nohugepage


Mechanisms of DAMON
===================


Basic Access Check
------------------

DAMON basically reports what pages are how frequently accessed.  The
report is passed to users in binary format via a ``result file`` which
users can set it's path.  Note that the frequency is not an absolute
number of accesses, but a relative frequency among the pages of the
target workloads.

Users can also control the resolution of the reports by setting two time
intervals, ``sampling interval`` and ``aggregation interval``.  In
detail, DAMON checks access to each page per ``sampling interval``,
aggregates the results (counts the number of the accesses to each page),
and reports the aggregated results per ``aggregation interval``.  For
the access check of each page, DAMON uses the Accessed bits of PTEs.

This is thus similar to the previously mentioned periodic access checks
based mechanisms, which overhead is increasing as the size of the target
process grows.


Region Based Sampling
---------------------

To avoid the unbounded increase of the overhead, DAMON groups a number
of adjacent pages that assumed to have same access frequencies into a
region.  As long as the assumption (pages in a region have same access
frequencies) is kept, only one page in the region is required to be
checked.  Thus, for each ``sampling interval``, DAMON randomly picks one
page in each region and clears its Accessed bit.  After one more
``sampling interval``, DAMON reads the Accessed bit of the page and
increases the access frequency of the region if the bit has set
meanwhile.  Therefore, the monitoring overhead is controllable by
setting the number of regions.  DAMON allows users to set the minimal
and maximum number of regions for the trade-off.

Except the assumption, this is almost same with the above-mentioned
miniature-like static region based sampling.  In other words, this
scheme cannot preserve the quality of the output if the assumption is
not guaranteed.


Adaptive Regions Adjustment
---------------------------

At the beginning of the monitoring, DAMON constructs the initial regions
by evenly splitting the memory mapped address space of the process into
the user-specified minimal number of regions.  In this initial state,
the assumption is normally not kept and thus the quality could be low.
To keep the assumption as much as possible, DAMON adaptively merges and
splits each region.  For each ``aggregation interval``, it compares the
access frequencies of adjacent regions and merges those if the frequency
difference is small.  Then, after it reports and clears the aggregated
access frequency of each region, it splits each region into two regions
if the total number of regions is smaller than the half of the
user-specified maximum number of regions.

In this way, DAMON provides its best-effort quality and minimal overhead
while keeping the bounds users set for their trade-off.


Applying Dynamic Memory Mappings
--------------------------------

Only a number of small parts in the super-huge virtual address space of
the processes is mapped to physical memory and accessed.  Thus, tracking
the unmapped address regions is just wasteful.  However, tracking every
memory mapping change might incur an overhead.  For the reason, DAMON
applies the dynamic memory mapping changes to the tracking regions only
for each of an user-specified time interval (``regions update
interval``).


Evaluations
===========

A prototype of DAMON has evaluated on an Intel Xeon E7-8837 machine
using 20 benchmarks that picked from SPEC CPU 2006, NAS, Tensorflow
Benchmark, SPLASH-2X, and PARSEC 3 benchmark suite.  Nonethless, this
section provides only summary of the results.  For more detail, please
refer to the slides used for the introduction of DAMON at the Linux
Plumbers Conference 2019[1] or the MIDDLEWARE'19 industrial track
paper[2].


Quality
-------

We first traced and visualized the data access pattern of each workload.
We were able to confirm that the visualized results are reasonably
accurate by manually comparing those with the source code of the
workloads.

To see the usefulness of the monitoring, we optimized 9 memory intensive
workloads among them for memory pressure situations using the DAMON
outputs.  In detail, we identified frequently accessed memory regions in
each workload based on the DAMON results and protected them with
``mlock()`` system calls.  The optimized versions consistently show
speedup (2.55x in best case, 1.65x in average) under memory pressure
situation.


Overhead
--------

We also measured the overhead of DAMON.  It was not only under the
upperbound we set, but was much lower (0.6 percent of the bound in best
case, 13.288 percent of the bound in average).  This reduction of the
overhead is mainly resulted from the adaptive regions adjustment.  We
also compared the overhead with that of the straightforward periodic
Accessed bit check-based monitoring, which checks the access of every
page frame.  DAMON's overhead was much smaller than the straightforward
mechanism by 94,242.42x in best case, 3,159.61x in average.

This commit introduces a new kernel module named DAMON.  Note that this
commit is implementing only the stub for the module load/unload, basic
data structures, and simple manipulation functions of the structures to
keep the size of commit small.  The core mechanisms of DAMON will be
implemented one by one by following commits.

Brief Introduction
==================

DAMON is a kernel module that would allow users to monitor the actual
memory access pattern of specific user-space processes.  It aims to be
1) accurate enough to be useful for performance-centric domains, and 2)
sufficiently light-weight so that it can be applied online.

For the goals, DAMON will utilize its two core mechanisms, called
region-based sampling and adaptive regions adjustment.  The region-based
sampling allows users to make their own trade-off between the quality
and the overhead of the monitoring and set the upperbound of the
monitoring overhead.  Further, the adaptive regions adjustment mechanism
makes DAMON to maximize the quality and minimize the overhead with its
best efforts while preserving the users configured trade-off.

Please note that the term 'memory' in this context means 'main memory'.
It also assumes that it would usually utilizes the middle level speed
memory devices such as DRAMs or NVRAMs.  CPU caches or storage devices
are not DAMON's concern, as those are too fast or too slow to be in
DAMON's scope.

Expected Use-cases
==================

A straightforward usecase of DAMON would be the program behavior
analysis.  With the DAMON output, users can confirm whether the program
is running as intended or not.  This will be useful for debuggings and
tests of design points.

The monitored results can also be useful for counting the dynamic
working set size of workloads.  For the administration of memory
overcommitted systems or selection of the environments (e.g., containers
providing different amount of memory) for your workloads, this will be
useful.

If you are a programmer, you can optimize your program by managing the
memory based on the actual data access pattern.  For example, you can
identify the dynamic hotness of your data using DAMON and call
``mlock()`` to keep your hot data in DRAM, or call ``madvise()`` with
``MADV_PAGEOUT`` to proactively reclaim cold data.  Even though your
program is guaranteed to not encounter memory pressure, you can still
improve the performance by applying the DAMON outputs for call of
``MADV_HUGEPAGE`` and ``MADV_NOHUGEPAGE``.  More creative optimizations
would be possible.  Our evaluations of DAMON includes a straightforward
optimization using the ``mlock()``.  Please refer to the below
Evaluation section for more detail.

As DAMON incurs very low overhead, such optimizations can be applied not
only offline, but also online.  Also, there is no reason to limit such
optimizations to the user space.  Several parts of the kernel's memory
management mechanisms could be also optimized using DAMON. The
reclamation, the THP (de)promotion decisions, and the compaction would
be such a candidates.  Nevertheless, current version of DAMON is not
highly optimized for the online/in-kernel uses.

This commit implements DAMON's basic access check and region based
sampling mechanisms.

Basic Access Check
------------------

DAMON basically reports what pages are how frequently accessed.  Note
that the frequency is not an absolute number of accesses, but a relative
frequency among the pages of the target workloads.

Users can control the resolution of the reports by setting two time
intervals, ``sampling interval`` and ``aggregation interval``.  In
detail, DAMON checks access to each page per ``sampling interval``,
aggregates the results (counts the number of the accesses to each page),
and reports the aggregated results per ``aggregation interval``.  For
the access check of each page, DAMON uses the Accessed bits of PTEs.

This is thus similar to common periodic access checks based access
tracking mechanisms, which overhead is increasing as the size of the
target process grows.

Region Based Sampling
---------------------

To avoid the unbounded increase of the overhead, DAMON groups a number
of adjacent pages that assumed to have same access frequencies into a
region.  As long as the assumption (pages in a region have same access
frequencies) is kept, only one page in the region is required to be
checked.  Thus, for each ``sampling interval``, DAMON randomly picks one
page in each region and clears its Accessed bit.  After one more
``sampling interval``, DAMON reads the Accessed bit of the page and
increases the access frequency of the region if the bit has set
meanwhile.  Therefore, the monitoring overhead is controllable by
setting the number of regions.

Nonetheless, this scheme cannot preserve the quality of the output if
the assumption is not kept.

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

At the beginning of the monitoring, DAMON constructs the initial regions
by evenly splitting the memory mapped address space of the process into
the user-specified minimal number of regions.  In this initial state,
the assumption of the regions (pages in same region have similar access
frequencies) is normally not kept and thus the monitoring quality could
be low.  To keep the assumption as much as possible, DAMON adaptively
merges and splits each region.

For each ``aggregation interval``, it compares the access frequencies of
adjacent regions and merges those if the frequency difference is small.
Then, after it reports and clears the aggregated access frequency of
each region, it splits each region into two regions if the total number
of regions is smaller than the half of the user-specified maximum number
of regions.

In this way, DAMON provides its best-effort quality and minimal overhead
while keeping the bounds users set for their trade-off.

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

Only a number of parts in the virtual address space of the processes is
mapped to physical memory and accessed.  Thus, tracking the unmapped
address regions is just wasteful.  However, tracking every memory
mapping change might incur an overhead.  For the reason, DAMON applies
the dynamic memory mapping changes to the tracking regions only for each
of a user-specified time interval (``regions update interval``).

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

This commit adds a debugfs interface for DAMON.

DAMON exports three files, ``attrs``, ``pids``, and ``monitor_on`` under
its debugfs directory, ``<debugfs>/damon/``.

Attributes
----------

Users can read and write the ``sampling interval``, ``aggregation
interval``, ``regions update interval``, min/max number of regions, and
the path to ``result file`` by reading from and writing to the ``attrs``
file.  For example, below commands set those values to 5 ms, 100 ms,
1,000 ms, 10, 1000, and ``/damon.data`` and check it again::

    # cd <debugfs>/damon
    # echo 5000 100000 1000000 10 1000 /damon.data > attrs

Target PIDs
-----------

Users can read and write the pids of current monitoring target processes
by reading from and writing to the `pids` file.  For example, below
commands set processes having pids 42 and 4242 as the processes to be
monitored and check it again::

    # cd <debugfs>/damon
    # echo 42 4242 > pids
    # cat pids
    42 4242

Note that setting the pids doesn't starts the monitoring.

Turning On/Off
--------------

You can check current status, start and stop the monitoring by reading
from and writing to the ``monitor_on`` file.  Writing ``on`` to the file
starts DAMON to monitor the target processes with the attributes.
Writing ``off`` to the file stops DAMON.  DAMON also stops if every
target processes is be terminated.  Below example commands turn on, off,
and check status of DAMON::

    # cd <debugfs>/damon
    # echo on > monitor_on
    # echo off > monitor_on
    # cat monitor_on
    off

Please note that you cannot write to the ``attrs`` and ``pids`` files
while the monitoring is turned on.  If you write to the files while
DAMON is running, ``-EINVAL`` will be returned.

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

This commit adds a shallow wrapper python script, ``/tools/damon/damo``
that provides more convenient interface.  Note that it is only aimed to
be used for minimal reference of the DAMON's raw interfaces and for
debugging of the DAMON itself.  Based on the debugfs interface, you can
create another cool and more convenient user space tools.

Quick Tutorial
--------------

1. Ensure your kernel is built with CONFIG_DAMON turned on, and debugfs
   is mounted at ``/sys/kernel/debug/``.
2. ``<your kernel source tree>/tools/damon/damo -h``

+==========================
+DAMON: Data Access MONitor
+==========================
+
+
+Too Long; Don't Read
+====================
+
+DAMON is a kernel module that allows users to monitor the actual memory access
+pattern of specific user-space processes.  It aims to be 1) accurate enough to
+be useful for performance-centric domains, and 2) sufficiently light-weight so
+that it can be applied online.
+
+For the goals, DAMON utilizes its two core mechanisms, called region-based
+sampling and adaptive regions adjustment.  The region-based sampling allows
+users to make their own trade-off between the quality and the overhead of the
+monitoring and set the upperbound of the monitoring overhead.  Further, the
+adaptive regions adjustment mechanism makes DAMON to maximize the quality and
+minimize the overhead with its best efforts while preserving the users
+configured trade-off.
+
+Please note that the term 'memory' in this document means 'main memory'.  It
+also assumes that it would usually utilizes the middle level speed memory
+devices such as DRAMs or NVRAMs.  CPU caches or storage devices are not our
+concern, as those are too fast or too slow to be in DAMON's scope.
+
+
+Background
+==========
+
+For performance-centric analysis and optimizations of memory management schemes
+(either that of kernel space or user space), the actual data access pattern of
+the workloads is highly useful.  The information need to be only reasonable
+rather than strictly correct, because some level of incorrectness can be
+handled in many performance-centric domains.  It also need to be taken within
+reasonably short time with only light-weight overhead.
+
+Manually extracting such data is not easy and time consuming if the target
+workload is huge and complex, even for the developers of the programs.  There
+are a range of tools and techniques developed for general memory access
+investigations, and some of those could be partially used for this purpose.
+However, most of those are not practical or unscalable, mainly because those
+are designed with no consideration about the trade-off between the accuracy of
+the output and the overhead.
+
+The memory access instrumentation techniques which is applied to many tools
+such as Intel PIN is essential for correctness required cases such as invalid
+memory access bug detections.  However, those usually incur high overhead which
+is unacceptable for many of the performance-centric domains.  Periodic access
+checks based on H/W or S/W access counting features (e.g., the Accessed bits of
+PTEs or the PG_Idle flags of pages) can dramatically decrease the overhead by
+forgiving some of the quality, compared to the instrumentation based
+techniques.  The reduced quality is still reasonable for many of the domains,
+but the overhead can arbitrarily increase as the size of the target workload
+grows.  Miniature-like static region based sampling can set the upperbound of
+the overhead, but it will now decrease the quality of the output as the size of
+the workload grows.
+
+
+Expected Use-cases
+==================
+
+A straightforward usecase of DAMON would be the program behavior analysis.
+With the DAMON output, users can confirm whether the program is running as
+intended or not.  This will be useful for debuggings and tests of design
+points.
+
+The monitored results can also be useful for counting the dynamic working set
+size of workloads.  For the administration of memory overcommitted systems or
+selection of the environments (e.g., containers providing different amount of
+memory) for your workloads, this will be useful.
+
+If you are a programmer, you can optimize your program by managing the memory
+based on the actual data access pattern.  For example, you can identify the
+dynamic hotness of your data using DAMON and call ``mlock()`` to keep your hot
+data in DRAM, or call ``madvise()`` with ``MADV_PAGEOUT`` to proactively
+reclaim cold data.  Even though your program is guaranteed to not encounter
+memory pressure, you can still improve the performance by applying the DAMON
+outputs for call of ``MADV_HUGEPAGE`` and ``MADV_NOHUGEPAGE``.  More creative
+optimizations would be possible.  Our evaluations of DAMON includes a
+straightforward optimization using the ``mlock()``.  Please refer to the below
+Evaluation section for more detail.
+
+As DAMON incurs very low overhead, such optimizations can be applied not only
+offline, but also online.  Also, there is no reason to limit such optimizations
+to the user space.  Several parts of the kernel's memory management mechanisms
+could be also optimized using DAMON. The reclamation, the THP (de)promotion
+decisions, and the compaction would be such a candidates.
+
+
+Mechanisms of DAMON
+===================
+
+
+Basic Access Check
+------------------
+
+DAMON basically reports what pages are how frequently accessed.  The report is
+passed to users in binary format via a ``result file`` which users can set it's
+path.  Note that the frequency is not an absolute number of accesses, but a
+relative frequency among the pages of the target workloads.
+
+Users can also control the resolution of the reports by setting two time
+intervals, ``sampling interval`` and ``aggregation interval``.  In detail,
+DAMON checks access to each page per ``sampling interval``, aggregates the
+results (counts the number of the accesses to each page), and reports the
+aggregated results per ``aggregation interval``.  For the access check of each
+page, DAMON uses the Accessed bits of PTEs.
+
+This is thus similar to the previously mentioned periodic access checks based
+mechanisms, which overhead is increasing as the size of the target process
+grows.
+
+
+Region Based Sampling
+---------------------
+
+To avoid the unbounded increase of the overhead, DAMON groups a number of
+adjacent pages that assumed to have same access frequencies into a region.  As
+long as the assumption (pages in a region have same access frequencies) is
+kept, only one page in the region is required to be checked.  Thus, for each
+``sampling interval``, DAMON randomly picks one page in each region and clears
+its Accessed bit.  After one more ``sampling interval``, DAMON reads the
+Accessed bit of the page and increases the access frequency of the region if
+the bit has set meanwhile.  Therefore, the monitoring overhead is controllable
+by setting the number of regions.  DAMON allows users to set the minimal and
+maximum number of regions for the trade-off.
+
+Except the assumption, this is almost same with the above-mentioned
+miniature-like static region based sampling.  In other words, this scheme
+cannot preserve the quality of the output if the assumption is not guaranteed.
+
+
+Adaptive Regions Adjustment
+---------------------------
+
+At the beginning of the monitoring, DAMON constructs the initial regions by
+evenly splitting the memory mapped address space of the process into the
+user-specified minimal number of regions.  In this initial state, the
+assumption is normally not kept and thus the quality could be low.  To keep the
+assumption as much as possible, DAMON adaptively merges and splits each region.
+For each ``aggregation interval``, it compares the access frequencies of
+adjacent regions and merges those if the frequency difference is small.  Then,
+after it reports and clears the aggregated access frequency of each region, it
+splits each region into two regions if the total number of regions is smaller
+than the half of the user-specified maximum number of regions.
+
+In this way, DAMON provides its best-effort quality and minimal overhead while
+keeping the bounds users set for their trade-off.
+
+
+Applying Dynamic Memory Mappings
+--------------------------------
+
+Only a number of small parts in the super-huge virtual address space of the
+processes is mapped to physical memory and accessed.  Thus, tracking the
+unmapped address regions is just wasteful.  However, tracking every memory
+mapping change might incur an overhead.  For the reason, DAMON applies the
+dynamic memory mapping changes to the tracking regions only for each of an
+user-specified time interval (``regions update interval``).
+
+
+User Interface
+==============
+
+DAMON exports three files, ``attrs``, ``pids``, and ``monitor_on`` under its
+debugfs directory, ``<debugfs>/damon/``.
+
+
+Attributes
+----------
+
+Users can read and write the ``sampling interval``, ``aggregation interval``,
+``regions update interval``, min/max number of regions, and the path to
+``result file`` by reading from and writing to the ``attrs`` file.  For
+example, below commands set those values to 5 ms, 100 ms, 1,000 ms, 10, 1000,
+and ``/damon.data`` and check it again::
+
+    # cd <debugfs>/damon
+    # echo 5000 100000 1000000 10 1000 /damon.data > attrs
+    # cat attrs
+    5000 100000 1000000 10 1000 /damon.data
+
+
+Target PIDs
+-----------
+
+Users can read and write the pids of current monitoring target processes by
+reading from and writing to the `pids` file.  For example, below commands set
+processes having pids 42 and 4242 as the processes to be monitored and check
+it again::
+
+    # cd <debugfs>/damon
+    # echo 42 4242 > pids
+    # cat pids
+    42 4242
+
+Note that setting the pids doesn't starts the monitoring.
+
+
+Turning On/Off
+--------------
+
+You can check current status, start and stop the monitoring by reading from and
+writing to the ``monitor_on`` file.  Writing ``on`` to the file starts DAMON to
+monitor the target processes with the attributes.  Writing ``off`` to the file
+stops DAMON.  DAMON also stops if every target processes is be terminated.
+Below example commands turn on, off, and check status of DAMON::
+
+    # cd <debugfs>/damon
+    # echo on > monitor_on
+    # echo off > monitor_on
+    # cat monitor_on
+    off
+
+Please note that you cannot write to the ``attrs`` and ``pids`` files while the
+monitoring is turned on.  If you write to the files while DAMON is running,
+``-EINVAL`` will be returned.
+
+
+User Space Wrapper
+------------------
+
+DAMON has a shallow wrapper python script, ``/tools/damon/damo`` that provides
+more convenient interface.  Note that it is only aimed to be used for minimal
+reference of the DAMON's raw interfaces and for debugging of the DAMON itself.
+Based on the debugfs interface, you can create another cool and more convenient
+user space tools.
+
+
+Quick Tutorial
+--------------
+
+To test DAMON on your system,
+
+1. Ensure your kernel is built with CONFIG_DAMON turned on, and debugfs is
+   mounted at ``/sys/kernel/debug/``.
+2. ``<your kernel source tree>/tools/damon/damo -h``

Looks like it's not integrated with perf at all right? Why?
Correlating measurements from different domains would help to see the
bigger picture.

Right, it's not integrated with perf.  DAMON provides only its debugfs
interface.  Also I agree that correlating measurments will be helpful.  I do
not integrate DAMON with perf with this patchset for following reasons.

First of all, I think I have no deep understanding of perf, yet.  Partly for
the reason, I couldn't figure out the best way to integrate DAMON with perf.
Especially, I couldn't straightforwardly classify DAMON providing information
into one of the categories of the perf events I know.

Therefore, rather than integrating DAMON with perf in my arguable way and
increasing the complexity of the code, I decided to keep the interface as
simple and flexible as it can be for the first stage.  That said, I believe it
would be not too hard to integrate DAMON with perf in a future.


Thanks,
SeongJae Park

Yunjae has personally pointed me out that this could interfere with reclamation
logic because page_referenced_one() checks the pte Accessed bits.  As the
function also checks PG_Young, we agreed to adjust PG_Young in addition to the
PG_Idle here, as below:

This change will be merged into this patch by next spin.  Also, adding CC for
page_idle.c related people.

I think I was unnecessarily worry about the best way.  I added a tracepoint to
the monitoring result writing logic of DAMON.  Other tracers including perf
would easily integrate DAMON using it, though the tracepoint is not highly
optimized yet.  Will post next version soon.
