Subject: [PATCH 0/7] Profiling sleep times (v2)
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 7th November 2011 12:54:10 UTC (over 4 years ago)
The problem is that events sched_stat_* contain call-chains of
non-target tasks.
About month ago I sent series of patches:

[PATCH 0/3] trace: add ability to collect call chains of non current task.

Peter and Frederic explained me, that this solve isn't good and will be
better to make it in userspace.

Now it's in userspace. This series expands "perf inject" to be able to
merge sched_switch events and sched_stat* events. sched_switch events
contain correct call-chains and sched_stat contains a correct time
slices.

v2:
* Removed all known issues. Now it works completely.
* Improved usability of sched-stat scripts according with Arun's comments.

Andrew Vagin (7):
  perf: use event_name() to get an event name
  event: don't divide events if it has field period
  perf: add ability to record event period
  perf: add ability to change event according to sample
  perf: teach "perf inject" to work with files
  perf: teach perf inject to merge sched_stat_* and sched_switch events
  perf: add scripts for profiling sleep times
