Subject: [PATCH 2/3] tracing/hwlat: Don't ignore outer-loop duration when calculating max_latency
Date: Thu, 10 Oct 2019 11:51:01 -0700
Message-ID: <157073345463.17189.18124025522664682811.stgit@srivatsa-ubuntu> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <157073343544.17189.13911783866738671133.stgit@srivatsa-ubuntu>

From: Srivatsa S. Bhat (VMware) <>

max_latency is intended to record the maximum ever observed hardware
latency, which may occur in either part of the loop (inner/outer). So
we need to also consider the outer-loop sample when updating

Fixes: e7c15cd8a113 ("tracing: Added hardware latency tracer")
