Subject: [PATCH v2 0/8] perf/amd: Zen4 IBS extensions support
Date: Mon, 9 May 2022 10:19:06 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220509044914.1473-1-ravi.bangoria@amd.com> (raw)

IBS support has been enhanced with two new features in upcoming uarch:
1. DataSrc extension and 2. L3 Miss Filtering capability. Both are
indicated by CPUID_Fn8000001B_EAX bit 11.

DataSrc extension provides additional data source details for tagged
load/store operations. Add support for these new bits in perf report/
script raw-dump.

IBS L3 miss filtering works by tagging an instruction on IBS counter
overflow and generating an NMI if the tagged instruction causes an L3
miss. Samples without an L3 miss are discarded and counter is reset
with random value (between 1-15 for fetch pmu and 1-127 for op pmu).
This helps in reducing sampling overhead when user is interested only
in such samples. One of the use case of such filtered samples is to
feed data to page-migration daemon in tiered memory systems.

Add support for L3 miss filtering in IBS driver via new pmu attribute
"l3missonly". Example usage:

  # perf record -a -e ibs_op/l3missonly=1/ --raw-samples sleep 5
  # perf report -D

Some important points to keep in mind while using L3 miss filtering:
1. Hw internally reset sampling period when tagged instruction does
   not cause L3 miss. But there is no way to reconstruct aggregated
   sampling period when this happens.
2. L3 miss is not the actual event being counted. Rather, IBS will
   count fetch, cycles or uOps depending on the configuration. Thus
   sampling period have no direct connection to L3 misses.

1st causes sampling period skew. Thus, I've added warning message at
perf record:

  # perf record -c 10000 -C 0 -e ibs_op/l3missonly=1/
  WARNING: Hw internally resets sampling period when L3 Miss Filtering is enabled
  and tagged operation does not cause L3 Miss. This causes sampling period skew.

User can configure smaller sampling period to get more samples while
using l3missonly.

v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20220425044323.2830-1-ravi.bangoria@amd.com
v1->v2:
 - patch 1 and 2 are new. 1st patch passes on return value of pmu init
   functions. 2nd patch refactors pmu attribute code by using
   ->is_visible() callback.
 - Patch 3 and 4 now also uses ->is_visible() callback for pmu format
   and capability attributes respectively.
 - Other minor improvements suggested by Robert
