Subject: [PATCH V2 00/10] perf script: Add API for filtering via dynamically loaded shared object
Date: Sun, 27 Jun 2021 16:18:08 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210627131818.810-1-adrian.hunter@intel.com> (raw)

Hi
 
In some cases, users want to filter very large amounts of data (e.g. from
AUX area tracing like Intel PT) looking for something specific. While
scripting such as Python can be used, Python is 10 to 20 times slower than
C. So define a C API so that custom filters can be written and loaded.

This is V2.

The main patch is patch 1.

The other patches add more functionality, except for patch 5 which installs
the C API header file.


Changes in V2:
    perf script: Move filter_cpu() earlier
    perf script: Move filtering before scripting
    perf script: Share addr_al between functions
	Dropped because they have now been applied.

    perf script: Add API for filtering via dynamically loaded shared object
	Move 2 members of struct perf_dlfilter_sample
	Add 'ctx' as an argument to 'start' and 'stop'
	Find dlfilter .so files in current directory or exec-path/dlfilters

    perf script: Add option to list dlfilters
	New patch

    perf script: Add option to pass arguments to dlfilters
	New patch

      perf script: Add API for filtering via dynamically loaded shared object
      perf script: Add dlfilter__filter_event_early()
