SYNOPSIS


.In pmc.h

DESCRIPTION

Intel Core i7 CPUs contain PMCs conforming to version 2 of the Intel performance measurement architecture. These CPUs contain 2 classes of PMCs:
PMC_CLASS_UCF Fixed-function counters that count only one hardware event per counter.
PMC_CLASS_UCP 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 Core i7 and Xeon 5500 PMCs are documented in
.Rs Volume 3B: System Programming Guide, Part 2
.Re

    COREI7 AND XEON 5500 UNCORE FIXED FUNCTION PMCS

These PMCs and their supported events are documented in pmc.ucf(3).

    COREI7 AND XEON 5500 UNCORE PROGRAMMABLE PMCS

The programmable PMCs support the following capabilities:
Capability      Support
PMC_CAP_CASCADE      No
PMC_CAP_EDGE      Yes
PMC_CAP_INTERRUPT      No
PMC_CAP_INVERT      Yes
PMC_CAP_READ      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.

    Event Specifiers (Programmable PMCs)

Core i7 and Xeon 5500 uncore programmable PMCs support the following events:
GQ_CYCLES_FULL.READ_TRACKER

GQ_CYCLES_NOT_EMPTY.WRITE_TRACKER
  (Event 01H, Umask 02H) Uncore cycles were Global Queue write tracker has at least one valid entry.
GQ_CYCLES_NOT_EMPTY.PEER_PROBE_TRACKER
  (Event 01H, Umask 04H) Uncore cycles were Global Queue peer probe tracker has at least one valid entry. The peer probe tracker queue tracks IOH and remote socket snoops.
GQ_ALLOC.READ_TRACKER
  (Event 03H, Umask 01H) Counts the number of tread tracker allocate to deallocate entries. The GQ read tracker allocate to deallocate occupancy count is divided by the count to obtain the average read tracker latency.
GQ_ALLOC.RT_L3_MISS
  (Event 03H, Umask 02H) Counts the number GQ read tracker entries for which a full cache line read has missed the L3.

The latency represents the time after which the L3 has determined that the cache line has missed. The time between a GQ read tracker allocation and the L3 determining that the cache line has missed is the average L3 hit latency. The total L3 cache line read miss latency is the hit latency + L3 miss latency.

GQ_ALLOC.WT_TO_RTID_ACQUIRED
  (Event 03H, Umask 10H) Counts the number of GQ write tracker entries that are allocated in the write tracker, have missed in the L3 and have not acquired a Request Transaction ID. The GQ write tracker L3 miss to RTID occupancy count is divided by this count to obtain the average latency for a write L3 miss to acquire an RTID.
GQ_ALLOC.WRITE_TRACKER
  (Event 03H, Umask 20H) Counts the number of GQ write tracker entries that are allocated in the write tracker queue that miss the L3. The GQ write tracker occupancy count is divided by the this count to obtain the average L3 write miss latency.
GQ_ALLOC.PEER_PROBE_TRACKER
  (Event 03H, Umask 40H) Counts the number of GQ peer probe tracker (snoop) entries that are allocated in the peer probe tracker queue that miss the L3. The GQ peer probe occupancy count is divided by this count to obtain the average L3 peer probe miss latency.
