SYNOPSIS


.In pmc.h

DESCRIPTION

Intel Core2 CPUs contain PMCs conforming to version 2 of the Intel performance measurement architecture. These CPUs may contain up to two classes of PMCs:
PMC_CLASS_IAF Fixed-function counters that count only one hardware event per counter.
PMC_CLASS_IAP Programmable counters that may be configured to count one of a defined set of hardware events.

The number of PMCs available in each class and their widths need to be determined at run time by calling pmc_cpuinfo(3).

Intel Core2 PMCs are documented in
.Rs Volume 3: System Programming Guide
.Re

    CORE2 FIXED FUNCTION PMCS

These PMCs and their supported events are documented in pmc.iaf(3). Not all CPUs in this family implement fixed-function counters.

    CORE2 PROGRAMMABLE PMCS

The programmable PMCs support the following capabilities:
Capability      Support
PMC_CAP_CASCADE      No
PMC_CAP_EDGE      Yes
PMC_CAP_INTERRUPT      Yes
PMC_CAP_INVERT      Yes
PMC_CAP_READ      Yes
PMC_CAP_PRECISE      No
PMC_CAP_SYSTEM      Yes
PMC_CAP_TAGGING      No
PMC_CAP_THRESHOLD      Yes
PMC_CAP_USER      Yes
PMC_CAP_WRITE      Yes
 

    Event Qualifiers

Event specifiers for these PMCs support the following common qualifiers:
cmask= value
  Configure the PMC to increment only if the number of configured events measured in a cycle is greater than or equal to value.
edge Configure the PMC to count the number of de-asserted to asserted transitions of the conditions expressed by the other qualifiers. If specified, the counter will increment only once whenever a condition becomes true, irrespective of the number of clocks during which the condition remains true.
inv Invert the sense of comparison when the "cmask" qualifier is present, making the counter increment when the number of events per cycle is less than the value specified by the "cmask" qualifier.
os Configure the PMC to count events happening at processor privilege level 0.
usr Configure the PMC to count events occurring at privilege levels 1, 2 or 3.

If neither of the "os" or "usr" qualifiers are specified, the default is to enable both.

Events that require core-specificity to be specified use a additional qualifier "core= core", where argument core is one of:
all Measure event conditions on all cores.
this Measure event conditions on this core.

The default is "this".

Events that require an agent qualifier to be specified use an additional qualifier "agent= agent", where argument agent is one of:
this Measure events associated with this bus agent.
any Measure events caused by any bus agent.

The default is "this".

Events that require a hardware prefetch qualifier to be specified use an additional qualifier "prefetch= prefetch", where argument prefetch is one of:
both Include all prefetches.
only Only count hardware prefetches.
exclude
  Exclude hardware prefetches.

The default is "both".

Events that require a cache coherence qualifier to be specified use an additional qualifier "cachestate= state", where argument state contains one or more of the following letters:
e Count cache lines in the exclusive state.
i Count cache lines in the invalid state.
m Count cache lines in the modified state.
s Count cache lines in the shared state.

The default is "eims".

Events that require a snoop response qualifier to be specified use an additional qualifier "snoopresponse= response", where argument response comprises of the following keywords separated by "+" signs:
clean Measure CLEAN responses.
hit Measure HIT responses.
hitm Measure HITM responses.

The default is to measure all the above responses.

Events that require a snoop type qualifier use an additional qualifier "snooptype= type", where argument type comprises the one of the following keywords:
cmp2i Measure CMP2I snoops.
cmp2s Measure CMP2S snoops.

The default is to measure both snoops.
