'perf' [--version] [--help] [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]
Run perf help command.
Display perf version.
Print the compiled-in status of libraries.
Display or set exec path.
Display html documentation path.
Set up pager.
Do not set pager.
Setup buildid cache directory. It has higher priority
than buildid.dir config file option.
List the most commonly used perf commands.
List available perf options.
Set debugfs directory or set environment variable PERF_DEBUGFS_DIR.
Setup debug variable (see list below) in value
range (0, 10). Use like:
--debug verbose # sets verbose = 1
--debug verbose=2 # sets verbose = 2
List of debug variables allowed to set:
verbose - general debug messages
ordered-events - ordered events object debug messages
data-convert - data convert command debug messages
stderr - write debug output (option -v) to stderr
in browser mode
perf-event-open - Print perf_event_open() arguments and
return value
Performance counters for Linux are a new kernel-based subsystem
that provide a framework for all things performance analysis. It
covers hardware level (CPU/PMU, Performance Monitoring Unit) features
and software features (software counters, tracepoints) as well.
