SYNOPSIS


.In pmc.h

DESCRIPTION

Intel Haswell 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 Haswell PMCs are documented in
.Rs Combined Volumes: 1, 2A, 2B, 2C, 3A, 3B and 3C
.Re

  A snoop was needed and it missed all snooped caches: -For LLC Hit, ReslHitl was returned by all cores -For LLC Miss, Rspl was returned by all sockets and data was returned from DRAM.
RES_SNOOP_HIT_NO_FWD
  A snoop was needed and it hits in at least one snooped cache. Hit denotes a cache-line was valid before snoop effect. This includes: -Snoop Hit w/ Invalidation (LLC Hit, RFO) -Snoop Hit, Left Shared (LLC Hit/Miss, IFetch/Data_RD) -Snoop Hit w/ Invalidation and No Forward (LLC Miss, RFO Hit S) In the LLC Miss case, data is returned from DRAM.

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.
