PM debug and profiling

Tracing of clock and power domains events

The perf and ftrace frameworks are used to generate the following events:

Cf. the patch/RFC in the links here below for details.

Patches submissions:

On-going activities

Compilation and usage

Starting from the pm branch of Tony's tree (at http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/tmlind/linux-omap-2.6.git), the submitted patch needs to be applied in order to get support for the new events and the OMAP specific trace points.

The config in use is omap3_pm_defconfig, with the following extra options to be enabled:

Userspace filesystem

The filesystem archive File:Arago-console-image-omap3evm.tar.gz contains the necessary power management related utilities (cpufreq, perf) as well as a few useful utilities (bash, sshd).

More info at http://arago-project.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_Up_Build_Environment.

To add the perf tool to the build, a new recipe must be added and a few patches to the arago and arago-oe-dev trees are needed:

A few extra packages have been added by adding the following to arago/conf/local.conf

IMAGE_INSTALL += " bash sshd linux-perf cpufrequtils"

The filesystem has been built using Arago's arago-console-image task, a lot of patience and perferably a few GB's of RAM ;p

MACHINE=omap3evm bitbake arago-console-image

Trace parsing and GUIs

pytimechart UI

Intro

PyTimechart is a tool that parses ftrace text traces, and display them with the help of a dynamic plot framework, Chaco (http://code.enthought.com/chaco/ ) The GUI makes the best it can to ease the browsing of huge traces.

Download and installation

Cf. http://gitorious.com/pytimechart/ for download of the latest code.

pytimechart depends on python-chaco. It can be installed on recent distributions (tested on Debian 6 and Ubuntu 10.04).

Usage

Cf. http://gitorious.com/pytimechart/pages/Home for usage instructions.
