libpfm_intel_core - support for Intel Core-based processors
.B #include <perfmon/pfmlib.h>
.B PMU name: core
.B PMU desc: Intel Core
The library supports all Intel Core-based processors that includes models 15, 23, 29.
The following modifiers are supported on Intel Core processors:
Measure at user level which includes privilege levels 1, 2, 3. This is a boolean modifier.
Measure at kernel level which includes privilege level 0. This is a boolean modifier.
Invert the meaning of the event. The counter will now count cycles in which the event is \fBnot\fR
occurring. This is a boolean modifier
Enable edge detection, i.e., count only when there is a state transition. This is a boolean modifier.
Set the counter mask value. The mask acts as a threshold. The counter will count the number of cycles
in which the number of occurrences of the event is greater or equal to the threshold. This is an integer
modifier with values in the range [0:255].
.SH ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
It is possible to force activation of the Intel Core support using the \fBLIBPFM_FORCE_PMU\fR variable.
The PMU name, core, must be passed. No additional options are supported.
