perf kmem: Analyze page allocator events also

The perf kmem command records and analyze kernel memory allocation only
for SLAB objects.  This patch implement a simple page allocator analyzer
using kmem:mm_page_alloc and kmem:mm_page_free events.

It adds two new options of --slab and --page.  The --slab option is for
analyzing SLAB allocator and that's what perf kmem currently does.

The new --page option enables page allocator events and analyze kernel
memory usage in page unit.  Currently, 'stat --alloc' subcommand is
implemented only.

If none of these --slab nor --page is specified, --slab is implied.

First run 'perf kmem record' to generate a suitable perf.data file:

  # perf kmem record --page sleep 5

Then run 'perf kmem stat' to postprocess the perf.data file:

  # perf kmem stat --page --alloc --line 10

tracing, mm: Record pfn instead of pointer to struct page

The struct page is opaque for userspace tools, so it'd be better to save
pfn in order to identify page frames.

The textual output of $debugfs/tracing/trace file remains unchanged and
only raw (binary) data format is changed - but thanks to libtraceevent,
userspace tools which deal with the raw data (like perf and trace-cmd)
can parse the format easily.  So impact on the userspace will also be
minimal.

superfluous.

Another problem is the inconsistent mixing of label based and
direct return error handling.

Add modern, label based error handling instead and clean up the code
a bit as well.

Note that we'll still do a kfree(NULL) in the normal case - this does

7 years agoperf sched replay: Fix the EMFILE error caused by the limitation of the maximum open...
Yunlong Song [Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:46:34 +0000 (21:46 +0800)]
perf sched replay: Fix the EMFILE error caused by the limitation of the maximum open files

The soft maximum number of open files for a calling process is 1024,
which is defined as INR_OPEN_CUR in include/uapi/linux/fs.h, and the
hard maximum number of open files for a calling process is 4096, which
is defined as INR_OPEN_MAX in include/uapi/linux/fs.h.

Both INR_OPEN_CUR and INR_OPEN_MAX are used to limit the value of
RLIMIT_NOFILE in include/asm-generic/resource.h.

And the soft maximum number finally decides the limitation of the
maximum files which are allowed to be opened.

That is to say a process can use at most 1024 file descriptors for its
o pened files, or an EMFILE error will happen.

This error can be fixed by increasing the soft maximum number, under the
constraint that the soft maximum number can not exceed the hard maximum
number, or both soft and hard maximum number should be increased
simultaneously with privilege.

For perf sched replay, it uses sys_perf_event_open to create the file
descriptor for each of the tasks in order to handle information of perf
events.

That is to say each task needs a unique file descriptor. In x86_64,
there may be over 1024 or 4096 tasks correspoinding to the record in
perf.data, which causes that no enough file descriptors can be used.

As a result, EMFILE error happens and stops the replay process. To solve
this problem, we adaptively increase the soft and hard maximum number of
open files with a '-f' option.

Example:

Test environment: x86_64 with 160 cores

 $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max
 163840
 $ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max

perf sched replay: Handle the dead halt of sem_wait when create_tasks() fails for any task

Since there is sem_wait for each task in the wait_for_tasks(), e.g.
sem_wait(&task->work_done_sem).

The sem_wait can continue only when work_done_sem is greater than 0, or
it will be blocked.

For perf sched replay, one task may sem_post the work_done_sem of
another task, which causes the work_done_sem of that task processed in a
reasonable sequence, e.g. sem_post, sem_wait, sem_wait, sem_post...

This sequence simulates the sched process of the running tasks at the
time when perf sched record runs.

As a result, all the tasks are required and their threads must be

If any one (task A) of the tasks fails to create its thread, then
another task (task B), whose work_done_sem needs sem_post from that
failed task A, may likely block itself due to seg_wait.

And this is a dead halt, since task B's thread_func cannot continue at
all.

To solve this problem, perf sched replay should exit once any task fails
to create its thread.

Example:

Test environment: x86_64 with 160 cores

Before this patch:

 $ perf sched replay
 ...
 Error: sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with -1 (Too many open

 Error: sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with -1 (Too many open

 $

As shown above, perf sched replay finishes the process after printing an
error message and does not block itself.

7 years agoperf sched replay: Fix the segmentation fault problem caused by pr_err in threads
Yunlong Song [Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:46:32 +0000 (21:46 +0800)]
perf sched replay: Fix the segmentation fault problem caused by pr_err in threads

The pr_err in self_open_counters() prints error message to stderr.
Unlike stdout, stderr uses memory buffer on the stack of each calling
process.

The pr_err in self_open_counters() works in a thread called thread_func
created in function create_tasks, which concurrently creates
sched->nr_tasks threads.

If the error happens and pr_err prints the error message in each of
these threads, the stack size of the perf process (default is 8192
kbytes) will quickly run out and the segmentation fault will happen
then.

To solve this problem, pr_err with self_open_counters() should be moved
from newly created threads to the old main thread of the perf process.
Then the pr_err can work in a stable situation without the strange
segmentation fault problem.

Example:

Test environment: x86_64 with 160 cores

Before this patch:

 $ perf sched replay
 ...
 task   1549 (             :163132:    163132), nr_events: 1

 task   1551 (           <unknown>:         0), nr_events: 10
 Segmentation fault

After this patch:

 $ perf sched replay

 task   1551 (           <unknown>:         0), nr_events: 10

As shown above, the result continues without any segmentation fault.

perf sched replay: Alloc the memory of pid_to_task dynamically to adapt to the unexpected change of pid_max

The current memory allocation of struct task_desc *pid_to_task[MAX_PID]
is in a permanent and preset way, and it has two problems:

Problem 1: If the pid_max, which is the max number of pids in the
system, is much smaller than MAX_PID (1024*1000), then it causes a waste
of stack memory. This may happen in the case where the number of cpu
cores is much smaller than 1000.

Problem 2: If the pid_max is changed from the default value to a value
larger than MAX_PID, then it will cause assertion failure problem. The
maximum value of pid_max can be set to pid_max_max (see pidmap_init
defined in kernel/pid.c), which equals to PID_MAX_LIMIT. In x86_64,
PID_MAX_LIMIT is 4*1024*1024 (defined in include/linux/threads.h). This
value is much larger than MAX_PID, and will take up 32768 Kbytes
(4*1024*1024*8/1024) for memory allocation of pid_to_task, which is much
larger than the default 8192 Kbytes of the stack size of calling
process.

Due to these two problems, we use calloc to allocate the memory of
pid_to_task dynamically.

Example:

Test environment: x86_64 with 160 cores

 $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max
 163840
 $ echo 1025000 > /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max
 $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max
 1025000

Run some applications until the pid of some process is greater than
the value of MAX_PID (1024*1000).

7 years agoperf sched replay: Increase the MAX_PID value to fix assertion failure problem
Yunlong Song [Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:46:29 +0000 (21:46 +0800)]
perf sched replay: Increase the MAX_PID value to fix assertion failure problem

Current MAX_PID is only 65536, which will cause assertion failure problem
when CPU cores are more than 64 in x86_64.

This is because the pid_max value in x86_64 is at least
PIDS_PER_CPU_DEFAULT * num_possible_cpus() (see function pidmap_init
defined in kernel/pid.c), where PIDS_PER_CPU_DEFAULT is 1024 (defined in
include/linux/threads.h).

Thus for MAX_PID = 65536, the correspoinding CPU cores are
65536/1024=64.  This is obviously not enough at all for x86_64, and will
cause an assertion failure problem due to BUG_ON(pid >= MAX_PID) in the
codes.

We increase MAX_PID value from 65536 to 1024*1000, which can be used in
x86_64 with 1000 cores.

This number is finally decided according to the limitation of stack size
of calling process.

Use 'ulimit -a', the result shows the stack size of any process is 8192
Kbytes, which is defined in include/uapi/linux/resource.h (#define
_STK_LIM (8*1024*1024)).

Thus we choose a large enough value for MAX_PID, and make it satisfy to
the limitation of the stack size, i.e., making the perf process take up
a memory space just smaller than 8192 Kbytes.

We have calculated and tested that 1024*1000 is OK for MAX_PID.

This means perf sched replay can now be used with at most 1000 cores in
x86_64 without any assertion failure problem.

Example:

Test environment: x86_64 with 160 cores

 $ cat /proc/sys/kernel/pid_max
 163840

Before this patch:

 $ perf sched replay

perf probe: Fix to track down unnamed union/structure members

Fix 'perf probe' to track down unnamed union/structure members.

perf probe did not track down the tree of unnamed union/structure
members, since it just failed to find given "name" in a parent
structure/union.  To solve this issue, I've introduced 2 changes.

- Fix die_find_member() to track down the type-DIE if it is
  unnamed, and if it contains the specified member, returns the
  unnamed member.
  (note that we don't return found member, since unnamed member
   has the offset in the parent structure)
- Fix convert_variable_fields() to track down the unnamed union/
  structure (one-by-one).

With this patch, perf probe can access unnamed fields:
  -----
  #./perf probe -nfx ./perf lock__delete ops 'locked_ops=ops->locked.ops'
  Added new event:
    probe_perf:lock__delete (on lock__delete in /home/mhiramat/ksrc/linux-3/tools/perf/perf with ops locked_ops=ops->locked.ops)

  You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

          perf record -e probe_perf:lock__delete -aR sleep 1

perf/x86/intel: Make the HT bug workaround conditional on HT enabled

This patch disables the PMU HT bug when Hyperthreading (HT)
is disabled. We cannot do this test immediately when perf_events
is initialized. We need to wait until the topology information
is setup properly. As such, we register a later initcall, check
the topology and potentially disable the workaround. To do this,
we need to ensure there is no user of the PMU. At this point of
the boot, the only user is the NMI watchdog, thus we disable
it during the switch and re-enable it right after.

Having the workaround disabled when it is not needed provides
some benefits by limiting the overhead is time and space.
The workaround still ensures correct scheduling of the corrupting
memory events (0xd0, 0xd1, 0xd2) when HT is off. Those events
can only be measured on counters 0-3. Something else the current
kernel did not handle correctly.

perf/x86/intel: Limit to half counters when the HT workaround is enabled, to avoid exclusive mode starvation

This patch limits the number of counters available to each CPU when
the HT bug workaround is enabled.

This is necessary to avoid situation of counter starvation. Such can
arise from configuration where one HT thread, HT0, is using all 4 counters
with corrupting events which require exclusion the the sibling HT, HT1.

In such case, HT1 would not be able to schedule any event until HT0
is done. To mitigate this problem, this patch artificially limits
the number of counters to 2.

That way, we can gurantee that at least 2 counters are not in exclusive
mode and therefore allow the sibling thread to schedule events of the
same type (system vs. per-thread). The 2 counters are not determined
in advance. We simply set the limit to two events per HT.

This helps mitigate starvation in case of events with specific counter
constraints such a PREC_DIST.

Note that this does not elimintate the starvation is all cases. But
it is better than not having it.

7 years agoperf/x86/intel: Implement cross-HT corruption bug workaround
Maria Dimakopoulou [Mon, 17 Nov 2014 19:06:58 +0000 (20:06 +0100)]
perf/x86/intel: Implement cross-HT corruption bug workaround

This patch implements a software workaround for a HW erratum
on Intel SandyBridge, IvyBridge and Haswell processors
with Hyperthreading enabled. The errata are documented for
each processor in their respective specification update
documents:

  - SandyBridge: BJ122
  - IvyBridge: BV98
  - Haswell: HSD29

The bug causes silent counter corruption across hyperthreads only
when measuring certain memory events (0xd0, 0xd1, 0xd2, 0xd3).
Counters measuring those events may leak counts to the sibling
counter. For instance, counter 0, thread 0 measuring event 0xd0,
may leak to counter 0, thread 1, regardless of the event measured
there. The size of the leak is not predictible. It all depends on
the workload and the state of each sibling hyper-thread. The
corrupting events do undercount as a consequence of the leak. The
leak is compensated automatically only when the sibling counter measures
the exact same corrupting event AND the workload is on the two threads
is the same. Given, there is no way to guarantee this, a work-around
is necessary. Furthermore, there is a serious problem if the leaked count
is added to a low-occurrence event. In that case the corruption on
the low occurrence event can be very large, e.g., orders of magnitude.

There is no HW or FW workaround for this problem.

The bug is very easy to reproduce on a loaded system.
Here is an example on a Haswell client, where CPU0, CPU4
are siblings. We load the CPUs with a simple triad app
streaming large floating-point vector. We use 0x81d0
corrupting event (MEM_UOPS_RETIRED:ALL_LOADS) and
0x20cc (ROB_MISC_EVENTS:LBR_INSERTS). Given we are not
using the LBR, the 0x20cc event should be zero.

  $ taskset -c 0 triad &
  $ taskset -c 4 triad &
  $ perf stat -a -C 0 -e r81d0 sleep 100 &
  $ perf stat -a -C 4 -r20cc sleep 10
  Performance counter stats for 'system wide':
        139 277 291      r20cc
       10,000969126 seconds time elapsed

In this example, 0x81d0 and r20cc ar eusing sinling counters
on CPU0 and CPU4. 0x81d0 leaks into 0x20cc and corrupts it
from 0 to 139 millions occurrences.

This patch provides a software workaround to this problem by modifying the
way events are scheduled onto counters by the kernel. The patch forces
cross-thread mutual exclusion between counters in case a corrupting event
is measured by one of the hyper-threads. If thread 0, counter 0 is measuring
event 0xd0, then nothing can be measured on counter 0, thread 1. If no corrupting
event is measured on any hyper-thread, event scheduling proceeds as before.

The same example run with the workaround enabled, yield the correct answer:

  $ taskset -c 0 triad &
  $ taskset -c 4 triad &
  $ perf stat -a -C 0 -e r81d0 sleep 100 &
  $ perf stat -a -C 4 -r20cc sleep 10
  Performance counter stats for 'system wide':
        0 r20cc
       10,000969126 seconds time elapsed

The patch does provide correctness for all non-corrupting events. It does not
"repatriate" the leaked counts back to the leaking counter. This is planned
for a second patch series. This patch series makes this repatriation more
easy by guaranteeing the sibling counter is not measuring any useful event.

The patch introduces dynamic constraints for events. That means that events which
did not have constraints, i.e., could be measured on any counters, may now be
constrained to a subset of the counters depending on what is going on the sibling
thread. The algorithm is similar to a cache coherency protocol. We call it XSU
in reference to Exclusive, Shared, Unused, the 3 possible states of a PMU
counter.

As a consequence of the workaround, users may see an increased amount of event
multiplexing, even in situtations where there are fewer events than counters
measured on a CPU.

Patch has been tested on all three impacted processors. Note that when
HT is off, there is no corruption. However, the workaround is still enabled,
yet not costing too much. Adding a dynamic detection of HT on turned out to
be complex are requiring too much to code to be justified.

This patch addresses the issue when PEBS is not used. A subsequent patch
fixes the problem when PEBS is used.

perf: Add ITRACE_START record to indicate that tracing has started

For counters that generate AUX data that is bound to the context of a
running task, such as instruction tracing, the decoder needs to know
exactly which task is running when the event is first scheduled in,
before the first sched_switch. The decoder's need to know this stems
from the fact that instruction flow trace decoding will almost always
require program's object code in order to reconstruct said flow and
for that we need at least its pid/tid in the perf stream.

To single out such instruction tracing pmus, this patch introduces
ITRACE PMU capability. The reason this is not part of RECORD_AUX
record is that not all pmus capable of generating AUX data need this,
and the opposite is *probably* also true.

While sched_switch covers for most cases, there are two problems with it:
the consumer will need to process events out of order (that is, having
found RECORD_AUX, it will have to skip forward to the nearest sched_switch
to figure out which task it was, then go back to the actual trace to
decode it) and it completely misses the case when the tracing is enabled
and disabled before sched_switch, for example, via PERF_EVENT_IOC_DISABLE.

buffer, where new data overwrites old data. It does not depend on data
buffer's overwrite mode, so that it doesn't lose sideband data that is

A PERF_RECORD_AUX with PERF_AUX_FLAG_OVERWRITE set is written to the perf

the new data from the old one, for example, by means of time stamps if
such are provided in the trace.

Consumer is also responsible for disabling any events that might write

For pmus that wish to write data to ring buffer's AUX area, provide
perf_aux_output_{begin,end}() calls to initiate/commit data writes,
similarly to perf_output_{begin,end}. These also use the same output
handle structure. Also, similarly to software counterparts, these
will direct inherited events' output to parents' ring buffers.

After the perf_aux_output_begin() returns successfully, handle->size
is set to the maximum amount of data that can be written wrt aux_tail
pointer, so that no data that the user hasn't seen will be overwritten,
therefore this should always be called before hardware writing is
enabled. On success, this will return the pointer to pmu driver's
private structure allocated for this aux area by pmu::setup_aux. Same
pointer can also be retrieved using perf_get_aux() while hardware
writing is enabled.

PMU driver should pass the actual amount of data written as a parameter
to perf_aux_output_end(). All hardware writes should be completed and
visible before this one is called.

Additionally, perf_aux_output_skip() will adjust output handle and
aux_head in case some part of the buffer has to be skipped over to
maintain hardware's alignment constraints.

Nested writers are forbidden and guards are in place to catch such
attempts.

This patch introduces "AUX space" in the perf mmap buffer, intended for
exporting high bandwidth data streams to userspace, such as instruction

AUX space is a ring buffer, defined by aux_{offset,size} fields in the
user_page structure, and read/write pointers aux_{head,tail}, which abide
by the same rules as data_* counterparts of the main perf buffer.

In order to allocate/mmap AUX, userspace needs to set up aux_offset to
such an offset that will be greater than data_offset+data_size and
aux_size to be the desired buffer size. Both need to be page aligned.
Then, same aux_offset and aux_size should be passed to mmap() call and
if everything adds up, you should have an AUX buffer as a result.

Pages that are mapped into this buffer also come out of user's mlock

This patch moves intel_shared_regs_constraints() ahead of
intel_pebs_constraints().

We can safely do that because the intel_shared_regs_constraints() function
only returns empty constraint if its rejecting the event, otherwise it

It took quite some time to trigger this build failure, because right now
BPF_SYSCALL is very obscure, depends on CONFIG_EXPERT. So also make BPF_SYSCALL
more configurable, not just under CONFIG_EXPERT.

If BPF_SYSCALL, tracing and kprobes are enabled then enable the bpf_tracing

We might want to make this an interactive option later on, although
I'd not complicate it unnecessarily: enabling BPF_SYSCALL is enough of
an indicator that the user wants BPF support.

Another program attaches to kmem_cache_free() and deletes
corresponding object from the map.

User space walks the map every second and prints any objects
which are older than 1 second.

Usage:

$ sudo tracex4

Then start few long living processes. The 'tracex4' will print
something like this:

obj 0xffff880465928000 is 13sec old was allocated at ip ffffffff8105dc32
obj 0xffff88043181c280 is 13sec old was allocated at ip ffffffff8105dc32
obj 0xffff880465848000 is  8sec old was allocated at ip ffffffff8105dc32
obj 0xffff8804338bc280 is 15sec old was allocated at ip ffffffff8105dc32

$ addr2line -fispe vmlinux ffffffff8105dc32
do_fork at fork.c:1665

As soon as processes exit the memory is reclaimed and 'tracex4'
prints nothing.

Similar experiment can be done with the __kmalloc()/kfree() pair.

7 years agosamples/bpf: Add IO latency analysis (iosnoop/heatmap) tool

samples/bpf: Add IO latency analysis (iosnoop/heatmap) tool

BPF C program attaches to
blk_mq_start_request()/blk_update_request() kprobe events to
calculate IO latency.

For every completed block IO event it computes the time delta
in nsec and records in a histogram map:

map[log10(delta)*10]++

User space reads this histogram map every 2 seconds and prints
it as a 'heatmap' using gray shades of text terminal. Black
spaces have many events and white spaces have very few events.
Left most space is the smallest latency, right most space is
the largest latency in the range.

Usage:

$ sudo ./tracex3
and do 'sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null' in other terminal.

Observe IO latencies and how different activity (like 'make
kernel') affects it.

Similar experiments can be done for network transmit latencies,
syscalls, etc.

'-t' flag prints the heatmap using normal ascii characters:

$ sudo ./tracex3 -t

samples/bpf: Add simple non-portable kprobe filter example

tracex1_kern.c - C program compiled into BPF.

It attaches to kprobe:netif_receive_skb()

When skb->dev->name == "lo", it prints sample debug message into
trace_pipe via bpf_trace_printk() helper function.

tracex1_user.c - corresponding user space component that:
  - loads BPF program via bpf() syscall
  - opens kprobes:netif_receive_skb event via perf_event_open()
    syscall
  - attaches the program to event via ioctl(event_fd,
    PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_BPF, prog_fd);
  - prints from trace_pipe

Note, this BPF program is non-portable. It must be recompiled
with current kernel headers. kprobe is not a stable ABI and
BPF+kprobe scripts may no longer be meaningful when kernel
internals change.

No matter in what way the kernel changes, neither the kprobe,
nor the BPF program can ever crash or corrupt the kernel,
assuming the kprobes, perf and BPF subsystem has no bugs.

The verifier will detect that the program is using
bpf_trace_printk() and the kernel will print 'this is a DEBUG
kernel' warning banner, which means that bpf_trace_printk()
should be used for debugging of the BPF program only.

Usage:
$ sudo tracex1

tracing, perf: Implement BPF programs attached to kprobes

BPF programs, attached to kprobes, provide a safe way to execute
user-defined BPF byte-code programs without being able to crash or
hang the kernel in any way. The BPF engine makes sure that such
programs have a finite execution time and that they cannot break
out of their sandbox.

The user interface is to attach to a kprobe via the perf syscall:

struct perf_event_attr attr = {
.type = PERF_TYPE_TRACEPOINT,
.config = event_id,
...
};

event_fd = perf_event_open(&attr,...);
ioctl(event_fd, PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_BPF, prog_fd);

'prog_fd' is a file descriptor associated with BPF program
previously loaded.

'event_id' is an ID of the kprobe created.

Closing 'event_fd':

close(event_fd);

... automatically detaches BPF program from it.

BPF programs can call in-kernel helper functions to:

  - lookup/update/delete elements in maps

  - probe_read - wraper of probe_kernel_read() used to access any
    kernel data structures

BPF programs receive 'struct pt_regs *' as an input ('struct pt_regs' is
architecture dependent) and return 0 to ignore the event and 1 to store
kprobe event into the ring buffer.

Note, kprobes are a fundamentally _not_ a stable kernel ABI,
so BPF programs attached to kprobes must be recompiled for
every kernel version and user must supply correct LINUX_VERSION_CODE
in attr.kern_version during bpf_prog_load() call.

7 years agoperf session: Always initialize ordered_events
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Tue, 31 Mar 2015 12:53:50 +0000 (09:53 -0300)]
perf session: Always initialize ordered_events

Even when it is not used to actually reorder events, some of its fields
are used, like session->ordered_events->tool, to shorten function
signatures where tool, for instance, was being passed, as the tool is
needed for the ordered_events code, we need it there and might as well
use it for other perf_session needs.

This fixes a problem where 'perf script' had some condition that made
session->ordered_events not to be initialized even with its
script->tool ordered_events related flags asking for it to be, which
looks like another bug and needs to be investigated further.

Always initializing session->ordered_events at least leaves the current
assumptions in place, so do it now.

7 years agoperf tools: Fix ppid for synthesized fork events

perf tools: Fix ppid for synthesized fork events

363b785f38 added synthesized fork events and set a thread's parent id to
itself. Since we are already processing /proc/<pid>/status the ppid can
be determined properly. Make it so.

7 years agoperf tools: Refactor comm/tgid lookup
David Ahern [Mon, 30 Mar 2015 20:35:57 +0000 (14:35 -0600)]
perf tools: Refactor comm/tgid lookup

Rather than parsing /proc/pid/status file one line at a time, read it
into a buffer in one shot and search for all strings in one pass.

tgid conversion also simplified -- removing the isspace walk. As noted
by Arnaldo those are not needed for atoi == strtol calls.
