Subject: [PATCH 67/73] perf intel-pt: Fix instructions sampling rate
Date: Fri, 17 May 2019 16:36:05 -0300
Message-ID: <20190517193611.4974-68-acme@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190517193611.4974-1-acme@kernel.org>

From: Adrian Hunter <adrian.hunter@intel.com>

The timestamp used to determine if an instruction sample is made, is an
estimate based on the number of instructions since the last known
timestamp. A consequence is that it might go backwards, which results in
extra samples. Change it so that a sample is only made when the
timestamp goes forwards.

Note this does not affect a sampling period of 0 or sampling periods
specified as a count of instructions.

Example:

 Before:

 $ perf script --itrace=i10us
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222583:       3270 instructions:u:      7fac71e2e494 __GI___tunables_init+0xf4 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:      30902 instructions:u:      7fac71e2da0f _dl_cache_libcmp+0x2f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:         10 instructions:u:      7fac71e2d9ff _dl_cache_libcmp+0x1f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:          8 instructions:u:      7fac71e2d9ea _dl_cache_libcmp+0xa (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:         14 instructions:u:      7fac71e2d9ea _dl_cache_libcmp+0xa (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)

 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:         14 instructions:u:      7fac71e2d9ff _dl_cache_libcmp+0x1f (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222667:          4 instructions:u:      7fac71e2dab2 _dl_cache_libcmp+0xd2 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222728:      16423 instructions:u:      7fac71e2477a _dl_map_object_deps+0x1ba (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222734:      12731 instructions:u:      7fac71e27938 _dl_name_match_p+0x68 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
 ...

 After:
 $ perf script --itrace=i10us
 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222583:       3270 instructions:u:      7fac71e2e494 __GI___tunables_init+0xf4 (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)

 ls 13812 [003] 2167315.222728:      16479 instructions:u:      7fac71e2477a _dl_map_object_deps+0x1ba (/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ld-2.28.so)
