Summary: A miscellaneous collection of in-development and unsupported performance analysis tools for Linux ftrace and perf_events (aka the "perf" command).
A miscellaneous collection of in-development and unsupported
performance analysis tools for Linux ftrace and perf_events (aka the
"perf" command). Both ftrace and perf are core Linux tracing tools,
included in the kernel source. Your system probably has ftrace
already, and perf is often just a package add (see Prerequisites).
These tools are designed to be easy to install (fewest dependencies),
provide advanced performance observability, and be simple to use: do
one thing and do it well. This collection was created by Brendan Gregg
(author of the DTraceToolkit).
Many of these tools employ workarounds so that functionality is
possible on existing Linux kernels. Because of this, many tools have
caveats (see man pages), and their implementation should be considered
a placeholder until future kernel features, or new tracing subsystems,
These are intended for Linux 3.2 and newer kernels. For Linux 2.6.x,
