-Measure at user level which includes privilege levels 1, 2, 3. This corresponds to \fBPFM_PLM3\fR.
-This is a boolean modifier.

 .B i
 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
 .TP
 .B e
-Enable edge detection, i.e., count only when there is a state transition from no occurrence of the event
-to at least one occurrence. This modifier must be combined with a counter mask modifier (m) with a value greater or equal to one.

 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
