Subject: [PATCH 3/3] perf script: Improve man page description of metrics
Date: Thu, 11 Jul 2019 11:19:22 -0700
Message-ID: <20190711181922.18765-3-andi@firstfloor.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190711181922.18765-1-andi@firstfloor.org>

From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Clarify that a metric is based on events, not referring
to itself. Also some improvements with the sentences.
