Subject: [PATCH v2 2/2] perf record: Add --synth option
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 21:01:29 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210724040129.2268452-2-namhyung@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210724040129.2268452-1-namhyung@kernel.org>

Add an option to control synthesize behavior.

    --synth <no|all|task|mmap|cgroup>
                      Fine-tune event synthesis: default=all

This can be useful when we know it doesn't need some synthesis like
in a specific usecase and/or when using pipe:

  $ perf record -a --all-cgroups --synth cgroup -o- sleep 1 | \
  > perf report -i- -s cgroup

+Collect and synthesize given type of events (comma separated).
+Available types are:
+  'task'    - synthesize FORK and COMM events for each task
+  'mmap'    - synthesize MMAP events for each process (implies 'task')
+  'cgroup'  - synthesize CGROUP events for each cgroup
+  'all'     - synthesize all events (default)
+  'no'      - do not synthesize any of the above events

 --tail-synthesize::
 Instead of collecting non-sample events (for example, fork, comm, mmap) at
 the beginning of record, collect them during finalizing an output file.
