SYNOPSIS


.In pmc.h

DESCRIPTION

Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs contain PMCs conforming to version 3 of the Intel performance measurement architecture. These CPUs contain two 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 Sandy Bridge PMCs are documented in
.Rs Volume 3B: System Programming Guide, Part 2
.Re

    SANDYBRIDGE UNCORE FIXED FUNCTION PMCS

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

    SANDYBRIDGE 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
PMC_CAP_PRECISE      No
PMC_CAP_SYSTEM      No
PMC_CAP_TAGGING      No
PMC_CAP_THRESHOLD      Yes
PMC_CAP_USER      No
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.

    Event Specifiers (Programmable PMCs)

Sandy Bridge programmable PMCs support the following events:
CBO_XSNP_RESPONSE.RSPIHITI

CBO_CACHE_LOOKUP_AND_READ2
  (Event 34H, Umask 20H) Filter on processor core initiated cacheable write requests. Must combine with at least one of 01H, 02H, 04H, 08H
CBO_CACHE_LOOKUP.AND_EXTSNP
  (Event 34H, Umask 40H) Filter on external snoop requests. Must combine with at least one of 01H, 02H, 04H, 08H
CBO_CACHE_LOOKUP.AND_ANY
  (Event 34H, Umask 80H) Filter on any IRQ or IPQ initiated requests including uncacheable, noncoherent requests. Must combine with at least one of 01H, 02H, 04H, 08H
