Koki Sanagi - Aug. 23, 2010, 9:47 a.m.
Add a perf script which shows a process of packets and processed time.
It helps us to investigate networking or network device.

If you want to use it, install perf and record perf.data like following.

#perf trace record netdev-times [script]

If you set script, perf gathers records until it ends.
If not, you must Ctrl-C to stop recording.

And if you want a report from record,

#perf trace report netdev-times [options]

If you use some options, you can limit an output.
Option is below.

tx: show only process of tx packets
rx: show only process of rx packets
dev=: show a process specified with this option
debug: work with debug mode. It shows buffer status.

For example, if you want to show a process of received packets associated
with eth4,

#perf trace report netdev-times rx dev=eth4
106133.171439sec cpu=0
  irq_entry(+0.000msec irq=24:eth4)
         |
  softirq_entry(+0.006msec)
         |
         |---netif_receive_skb(+0.010msec skb=f2d15900 len=100)
         |            |
         |      skb_copy_datagram_iovec(+0.039msec 10291::10291)
         |
  napi_poll_exit(+0.022msec eth4)

This perf script helps us to analyze a process time of transmit/receive
sequence.

Nano-nits:

-c 1 and -R are now default settings for tracepoints and -f is not
needed anymore. I've removed them.



> +all_event_list = []; # insert all tracepoint event related with this script



Ah I didn't know ";" works with python :)

Events already arrive in time order to the scripts.

Thnaks!
